Law West and East of Privilege Creek

By Judith Pannebaker BCC Editor

Wednesday, March 20:
A Simpleton from San Antone thought hightailing it to Bantucky would offer her immunity from the follies of accumulating a trio of felony warrants - two for skipping bond and another issued from a judge's bench. She thought wrong, of course, and remains confined to the County Can for her miscalculation.
Whereas, another denizen from River City - perhaps a cohort in crime of the above villain? - also remains a guest of the X Bar Inn due to a misdemeanor warrant that may eventually revoke her probation.
Thursday, March 21:
A couple of Bandera Boozers were caught and released for misdemeanor public intoxication and a first DWI.
Okay, after six years of writing these weekly columns, here's a first. A Master Criminal, who gave her city of residence, as "Italy," was sent to the local slammer, where she remains, on a total of 30 - let me write that again, 30 - misdemeanor charges, including writing 11 bad checks, bouncing a total of eight rubber ones, failing to appear eight times and being dogged by three warrants from an outside agency. Whew, now that's what I call a busy gal - even for Bandera!

Friday, March 22:
Oddly enough, a lady Lunkhead from Lakehills also remains confined to the quod on account of a single measly misdemeanor warrant issued from an "outside" agency.
While a misdemeanor warrant from yet another "outside" agency - coupled with a felony charge of possession of less than a gram of a PG 1 controlled substance - didn't appear to break the stride of a Scofflaw from San Antonio.
Saturday, March 23:
An ill-tempered Lout - Loutess? Louttette? - from Lousie got popped for assaulting someone by contact.
Sunday, March 24:
A Lakehills Halfwit celebrated the Sabbath by attempting to boost something worth between $50 and $500, burglarizing a vehicle and possessing less than two ounces of pot as well as the inhalant paraphernalia with which to smoke it. Although all charges were misdemeanors, for his ill-lucked labor, he also remains a guest of the Doo Drop Inn.
A Pipe Creep found himself under arrest - and still confined to the local Big House - on a couple of misdemeanor warrants - failure-to appear and an "other" one.
Oh, no, yet another local remains a guest of the county calaboose for attempting to weedwack - and failing.
