In Bexar County, Texas, when Jesus Reyes and his family arrived at the pavilion in Rodriguez Park they'd reserved for Easter Sunday, they found Bexar County Precinct 2 Constable Michelle Barrientes Vela there in uniform. She told them she'd reserved the pavilion. The park manager came and told Vela that Reyes had reserved the pavilion. Vela and her group moved to a nearby barbecue pit. But she insisted that Reyes pay her $50 an hour for security. Reyes ended up paying her and her chief deputy a total of $300. A county parks director explained that they had arranged for officers to provide security for the other parks that day for $38 an hour, and didn't charge guests, but Vela balked at the plan and insisted on covering the park herself.
