Travis County ME's Office one step closer to becoming sobriety center

The Travis County Medical Examiner's Office is one step closer to becoming a sobriety center.  Travis County commissioners approved the creation of a so-called "drunk tank".

City officials say it will help save money.

Commissioners also approved an Austin police sub-station which APD says will help get officers back on the streets more quickly.

The Medical Examiner's Office plans to move out of its current facility in 2017.
