A former San Antonio police officer has been indicted for manslaughter and aggravated assault in the traffic death of a colleague last year.
David Seaton faces up to life in prison if convicted on either felony. The 44-year-old had planned to plead “no contest” but rescinded the agreement last month.
Seaton was allegedly driving his patrol car more than 100 mph without his flashing emergency lights on while responding to a low-level shoplifting call in November 2008. He struck Officer Robert Davis, who was working an unrelated traffic accident at the time. Davis later died of his injuries.
Another motorist was seriously injured in the crash.
