The 47-year-old is currently free on $500 bail and will appear in court on August 23rd.

Moments later, the two officers arrested Suro and put her in the back of the police car. 

Eddie Quaid called 911 to report an erratic driver on the road and told KTRK that he saw Suro's BMW shifting from one lane to the next and running a red light.

'The person obviously had a medical emergency or was under the influence of drugs or alcohol,' Quaid said.

He shared that he followed the luxury car for roughly 20 minutes until police arrived to pull her over.  

'Houston is a very large city. It's a very dangerous city to drive in, and the last thing we need is another drunk driving accident,' Quaid said. 

'I wanted to protect everybody on the road, so I felt like I could do that safely by calling in and continuing to follow the car.'

This is not the first time Suro, who earns $69,740 per year with the Houston Police Department, has faced trouble.

Suro was suspended and ultimately demoted from being a sergeant in 2013 after she uploaded nearly 100 photos, some of which were nude, to ModelMayhem.com in the fall of 2012.

Other images shared to the site at the timed appeared to depict Suro in fetish, bondage and other compromising positions, KSAT reported.

After the photos were discovered, an internal affairs investigation was conducted which resulted in her demotion after officials determined she had violated the department's conduct policy.  

'Employees shall exhibit professional conduct at all times and shall not engage in any activity, including unlawful activity that would degrade or bring disrespect upon the employee or the department,' according to the department's conduct policy.

She joined the police force in 1992, and at the time of her arrest she was working as a senior police officer in the property room.
