SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A former Chula Vista police officer accused of drunk driving, hit and run and bribery is back in jail.
Jesus Salazar, 32, was taken into custody Friday in El Cajon court after a judge raised his bail to $160,000.
Salazar quit the Chula Vista Police Department last year after he was convicted of DUI and cheating at a local casino.
Last week prosecutors say he was drunk again when he crashed his car on Interstate 8 and tried to run from the scene. Two truck drivers chased him down, and Salazar allegedly offered them $1,000 to let him go.
Salazar told the judge he will enter rehab if he bails out.
He faces up to five years in prison if convicted.
