MIDLAND -- On Tuesday Jerry Morales was elected mayor of Midland. Friday morning his son Chase Morales was arrested at a nightclub for possession of a controlled substance.
The police report says Morales was arrested around 1:17 a.m. Friday at Club Ariba.
Officers didn't actually find cocaine on his person, rather, police found the cocaine in a car Morales was seen getting out of.
Police say Morales waived his Miranda rights, and admitted the substance police found on the center console of a 2009 Chevy Tahoe was cocaine.
Officers then arrested Morales and charged him.
Police say there was also hydrocodone found in the vehicle.
Jerry Morales' campaign office confirmed to us that Chase is the mayor elect's son and that Jerry Morales would have no comment on the matter.
The only statement Morales' campaign office wished to give is as follows: "Their main concern is Chase and making sure he's OK."
