SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A former San Antonio police officer has been ordered to serve six months in jail after he was found wandering the streets near his wrecked city vehicle last year, disoriented and dressed in a T-shirt and boxer shorts.

Joseph Earl Myers told the judge Wednesday that he'd mixed alcohol with the prescription sleep drug Ambien. The former narcotics officer added that he doesn't know how cocaine was found in his system.

He was indicted for two counts of state jail felony misapplication of fiduciary property - one for the vehicle damage, the other involving money that was temporarily missing from a fund used to pay informants.

The San Antonio Express-News reports that under a plea agreement reached last month, Myers pleaded no contest only to damaging the vehicle.
