In response to an open records request filed by the San Benito News, Assistant City Manager Arturo Rodriguez confirmed Monday that Romeo Mancillas, the San Benito Fire Department captain who allegedly reported to work under the influence of alcohol, was suspended without pay for 30 days. In addition, Rodriguez said the captain was demoted to lieutenant.
