- Law West and East of Privilege Creek -

Quote of the week: "When waving at a law enforcement officer, don't forget to use all your fingers!"

Monday, May 27:
A warrant from an outside agency tripped up the good times of a Hick from Hondo.

Wednesday, May 29:
An 18-year-old Bandera Babe, who is also Basically a Bonehead, was popped for felony possession of a PG 1 controlled substance.

Thursday, May 30:
Okay, maybe this 70something local yokel didn't mean to boost something worth between $1,500 and $20,000, but that's what he's charged with - and it's a felony, to boot.

A 19-year-old Pipe Creep found himself faced with a felony judgment and, for his trouble, remains confined to the county calaboose.

As does a Boerne Bad Boy whose unfortunate incarceration was mandated by a felony warrant from an outside agency.

Another day, another denizen of Pipe Creek being dogged by a failure-to-appear warrant.

Despite being charged with a sextet of misdemeanors, including two of a traffic type, a duo for failing to appear and another pair stemming from the suspect's inability to follow the ministrations of previous courts, a Bandera Blockhead spent but a scant 48 hours in the Hill Country equivalent of The Tombs.

Friday, May 31:
A Bad-Tempered Banderan was nicked for misdemeanor assault that resulted in the injury to someone else's body.

Denizens of the Cowboy Capital of the World and the Lake District were hauled off to the hoosegow - where they remain - for felony possession of a PG 1 controlled substance.

For his transgression, a felon who possessed a verboten firearm also continues to enjoy the largesse of the county taxpayers - which, translated loosely, means "three hots and a cot."

So, this Cowboy Capital Cretin hindered the apprehension or prosecution of someone while possessing a PG 1 controlled substance and now he's safely tucked away in the quod facing two felony charges.

What's the matter here? Doesn't ANYONE in Bandera obey the law? It seems another "fine, upstanding young man" is still in the cooler after being unable to shake loose a felony warrant from an outside agency, as well as for a misdemeanor warrant that may revoke his parole - but probably won't.

Monday, June 3:
And, last, but certainly not least - an arrest report would not be complete without at least one Boozer from Bandera getting arrested for a first - or second or even third - DWI. We leave you with that!
