H.M. King High School and Memorial Middle School band director Roberto “Bobby” Salazar resigned from the Kingsville Independent School District after he was arrested on charges of possession of a controlled substance earlier this month.
KISD Superintendent Elida Bera confirmed Salazar’s resignation Tuesday.
According to a police report from the Kingsville Police Department obtained through an open records request, Salazar was arrested shortly after 1 a.m. on Saturday, May 11, when he was allegedly found to be in possession of seven Adderall pills during a traffic stop in the 200 block of E. Johnson Avenue.
Without a valid prescription, Adderall, an amphetamine, is considered an illegal controlled substance.
Salazar was charged with possession of a controlled substance PG2 - one gram or more but less than four grams, a third degree felony. He was transported to the Kleberg County Jail, but was released on bond the same day.
