I first want to apologize to my wife, the people of District 2, the people of San Antonio, Justin Vitek and the On The Rocks Pub for all the confusion. I have spoken to the bar owner and he has reviewed the videos and it seems like I just had too much to drink.
I was celebrating a friend's birthday and don't remember any of the night after midnight.
I have never had this type of memory lapse with alcohol use which is why I thought I must have been drugged.
I do not know how I ended up at City Hall but I do know I was not driving and have learned that lesson from my College days.
I take full responsibility for my actions and have not stopped doing the necessary work for District 2. And I will never let this happen again.
I thank all of you for your words of support and encouragement and will continue to work tirelessly to reflect the wishes of the people of District 2.
I also want to apologize to Mr. Shaw. I am sure this distraction was unnecessary to his campaign and I look forward to finishing this and pulling the District together on June 10th.
I have already done interviews with KSAT 12 and News 4 San Antonio stating these facts.
"[T]he timing and the location, out of a thousand places to sleep downtown that wouldn’t have caused any (publicity) — there was no reason for me to go to City Hall. My vehicle wasn’t at City Hall. It just doesn’t make any sense.”Drugging a city councilman five days before early voting starts — sounds like a pretty serious crime, one you'd think Warrick would probably want the police to look into. However, Warrick says he didn't go to the doctor or seek any testing to confirm that he was, in fact, drugged. In his Facebook post, he says that's because he had to attend the funeral services of a San Antonio firefighter who died last week.
