A Ticked-Off Twerp from Tarpley remains confined to the county can for a quartet of misdemeanor crimes, including two assaults with bodily injury, a first DWI and possession of inhalant paraphernalia.

A Kerr-vert, who was purportedly driving drunk with a child in his vehicle, found himself charged with a felony because of his ill-advised decision.

A Bandera man was arrested for felony indecency with a child.

Not only is this Freeloader from F'burg being housed in our lockup for Gillespie County, but he's also being charged in his own right with bouncing rubber checks and issuing bad ones. For what it's worth, my advice is: Don't lend this guy a dollar!

It appears a Bandera Boozer is apparently waiting for a felony third bottle to drop after being nicked for his second DWI.

Yet another Local Yokel, joined by a Scofflaw from San Antonio, was just too busy to bother applying for - let along receive - a driver's license. Apparently they were both busted for not doing so, however.

A Pipe Creep found himself charged with being inebriated behind a wheel for a very first time. One down, two to go, fella.

Unfortunately, there's no surprise here. A Bandera Blockhead was sent to the slammer for being caught with something designed to smoke something that's radically illegal.

This ain't Colorado or California, as one San Antone Slug found out recently. bubba. Unless you know something we don't, bubba, it's still illegal to possess weed here. BTW, he's still a guest of the Doo Drop Inn for the misdemeanor - maybe because he also forgot to appear, too.
