  • DALLAS COP ARRESTED IN IRVIN MURDER PLOT

         Dallas police officer JOHNNIE HERNANDEZ, who had been
    subpoenaed to testify in the MICHAEL IRVIN drug trial, was
    arrested on charges he tried to hire a hit man to kill the
    Cowboys wide receiver, according to the FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM.
    Allegedly, Hernandez was upset with Irvin's involvement with
    ROCHELLE SMITH, whom he listed in booking records as his common-
    law wife with the same address.  Smith had testified before the
    Dallas County grand jury that indicted Irvin on felony cocaine
    and misdemeanor marijuana charges (Lewis and Hanna, FORT WORTH
    STAR-TELEGRAM, 6/28).  A source familiar with the investigation
    told the WASHINGTON POST that Hernandez also had a connection
    with one of the two women indicted along with Irvin.  The source
    said Hernandez passed along between $3,000-5,000 to an undercover
    DEA agent to have Irvin killed (WASHINGTON POST, 6/28).
    Revelations about the murder-for-hire plot could prompt a
    mistrial in the Irvin case, as it will make it difficult to pick
    an impartial jury from the pool already called for the trial
    (Linda Campbell, FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 6/28).
