The incident involving Antonio Buehler began when Oborski and another APD officer, Robert Snider, arrested the passenger of the stopped car.
Buehler got into a heated face to face verbal exchange with Officer Oborski.

believed Buehler spit in his face and began trying to arrest Buehler.

The felony charges considered by the Grand Jury were tampering with a governmental record by Officer Oborski as well as harassment of a public servant by Antonio Buehler.

The night began with a ride-a-long with senior police officer Patrick Oborski.
He has worked with the DWI unit for seven years and focuses on the Downtown Austin area.
"It's the hub of the entertainment district where there's a lot of alcohol, and a lot of intoxicated drivers.
I like to get them before they get out of the downtown area, and before they get on the high speed roadways where a more serious accident could occur," said Officer Oborski.
"Based on all the personal observations and the driving exhibited I felt like I had no choice but to arrest him for driving while intoxicated," said Oborski
