Cop Who Faked His Death Has Been Arrested

A Texas officer who authorities say faked his own death and fled to Mexico has been arrested at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Austin police confirm.

An arrest affidavit released last week said 28-year-old Austin officer Coleman Martin texted his wife a photo of a note indicating he meant to drown himself in a lake near the border with Mexico.

Authorities later were contacted by a woman who received an email from Martin, explaining that he abandoned his car at the lake.

He then rode a bike to a convenience store, grabbed a taxi to the border and hopped a bus into Mexico.
