Law West & East of Privilege Creek

By Judith Pannebaker BCC Editor

Wednesday, Feb. 1:
A local yokel apparently forgot to get his driver's license and, until he was summarily stopped, continued to motor along merrily without it.

A Blockhead from Bandera remains confined to the county can after being charged with a quartet of felonies, theft of a firearm, burglary of a building and two "other" warrants.

It appears that an A-hole from Austin was apprehended forging something - a felony, to be sure - and spent some time in the slammer for her trouble.

Yet another Bandera Bad Boy thought he could get away with resisting arrest and not providing a valid ID - he couldn't.

Thursday, Feb. 2:
A 60something Bandera Bandito should enroll in some anger management courses after being charged with misdemeanor assault with bodily injury.

A known lawbreaker from Lakehills went back to the gaol for a bit after being nicked for a trio of misdemeanors, including public intoxication, resisting arrest and criminal mischief.

Friday, Feb. 3:
It looks like a couple of citizens of Pipe Creek starting celebrating the weekend by going one toke over the line and were both arrested for possessing less than two ounces of pot.

A Scofflaw from San Antonio also thought he could get away with driving without a license. He, too, thought wrong.

Yet another fine, upstanding Criminal from the Cowboy Capital led an officer on a merry chase before being nabbed for evading arrest, felony evading arrest with a vehicle and, for good measure, jes plain ole resisting arrest.

Saturday, Jan. 4:
A moron from Morfessboro (huh?) was picked up for his first DWI.

A Bad-Tempered Banderan found himself in hot water for misdemeanor assault with bodily injury.

Sunday, Feb. 5:
A New Braunfels Ninny thought he, too, could get away with driving without a license. A deputy proved him wrong.

A Miscreant from Medina attempted to pass a bad check, but was thwarted in her efforts.

In addition to the above arrests, during the week of Monday, Jan. 30, through Sunday, Feb. 5, local law enforcement officers also responded to two major vehicular accidents; a quartet of disturbances, domestic disputes and loud parties; a terroristic threat; two each, harassment, theft and criminal mischief; one count of fraud; 30 calls involving our four-legged friends; one indecency with a child; three lost or missing persons; 12 suspicious people, vehicles or circumstances; eight reports of reckless driving; one failure to register as a sexual offender; and three calls for Child Protective Services, among others.

Currently, 71 jailbirds call the Bandera County Calaboose "home sweet home" - 19 from Medina County, 13 from Gillespie County; five from Real County and a trio from Kimble County.

The rest were busted right here.
