-- Law West & East of Privilege Creek --
By Judith Pannebaker BCC Editor
Sunday, July 1:
Two warrants from an outside agency - one a felony and the other NOT - seemed sufficient to send a local sinner to the slammer for a bit.
An inebriant from the Creek District was picked up for a felony third DWI for which he remains a guest of the Gray Bar Inn.
Monday, July 2:
A quartet of drunks from Decatur found themselves spending the night in the slammer for being pissed in public.
A transgressor from San Antone was arrested for felony aggravated assault.
Although charged with contentious crimes, a couple of Cowboy Capital Criminals spent but a night in the pokey. In toto, their myriad misdeeds include felony possession of a PG 1 controlled substance, possessing dangerous drugs, possessing lesser controlled substances and, for good measure, a first DWI. Even with all that, they bonded out of jail in good time.
Tuesday, July 3:
Not content with being pissed in a public forum, this Pipe Creep was also discovered carrying a dangerous drug, as well.
A couple of 18 year olds from Pipe Creek and Bandera were booked, respectively, for being dogged by a felony motion-to-revoke-your-probation warrant and pot possession.
After motoring all the way from River City to the Hill Country, some poor schmiel found himself in the clutches of John Law for a misdemeanor warrant from an outside agency.
Well, two misdemeanor warrants - yet another from an outside agency and a second that may serve to revoke this 21-year-old denizen of Pipe Creek's probation - ensured that he remain confined to the county can as of this writing at least.
Surprise, surprise, a Bandera Boyo was charged with criminal mischief while another found himself flung into the gaol for felony assault with a deadly weapon and for being publically intoxicated while doing it and the guy's wife came under fire for an outstanding traffic warrant. Quite a haul for the sheriff's office.
Wednesday, July 4:
Celebrating Independence Day, a local yokel assaulted his fellow man - or woman, the arrest report wasn't that specific - by threat.
Thursday, July 5:
A Hick from Hondo now faces a felony charge - for which he remains incarcerated - for having a pocketful of not rye, but rather a controlled substance.
Another day, another Pipe Creep picked up for being pie-eyed in public.
Friday, July 6:
A Slug from San Antonio thought he could slither in the Hill Country and get away with making a misdemeanor terrorist threat, but he was tripped up by a felony warrant from an outside agency, as well as one that suggested he had failed to appear before a previous court. For his trouble, he remains incarcerated.
Saturday, July 7:
A 17-year-old Banderan is off to a great start in life after being picked up for misdemeanor possession of tobacco, inhalant paraphernalia and something else he ought not to have been holding. Meanwhile his buddies from Helotes and San Antonio found themselves afoul of the law for carrying inhalant paraphernalia and dangerous drugs, respectively. Before being thwarted, seems that this trio of "yewts" were set on having a "high ole time" in Bandera.
A Bandera Babe apparently thought she could get away with driving without a license but with both MJ and a dangerous drug in her environs - she thought wrong.
A 54-year-old woman and 37-year-old man, both from Bandera, were arrested - not together - for collective first DWIs.
Doesn't ANYONE in Bandera obey the law? Okay, yet another trio of Bandera weedwackers was busted for carrying a switchblade and MaryJane; for carrying MaryJane and inhalant paraphernalia possession; and for just carrying JaryMane. By the way, that wasn't a rhetorical question.
So this Cretin who hails from College Station was arrested for felony injury to a disabled person. What an A-hole! Consider that observation an editorial aside.
Sunday, July 8:
A Bandera Boozer found himself charged with a second DWI.
Three sheets to the wind was where a tippler from Pipe Creek was apparently - twice.
A Hellion from Hondo was hauled off to the hoosegow - where he remains - for reckless driving.
A Lakehills Laddie raised the ire of federal officials for making a misdemeanor false report to a post office. Consequently, he remains incarcerated.
