Wednesday, Dec. 25:
Well, it appears this year Santa brought one 49-year-old citizen of the Cowboy Capital a first DWI charge for Christmas.

As the year winds down, it's nice to know very little changes in these parts as evidenced by a local yokel getting nicked for resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
A San Antonio Numbskull and a half-baked Banderan were hauled in - respectively - for pot possession and the pipe with which to smoke it in. Both remain confined to the county can for their misdeeds.

A Bandera Bandito rang in the New Year in the county can, booked for a trio of misdemeanor traffic warrants and another for failing to appear.
Tuesday, Dec. 31:
A 25-year-old from Rio Frio needs to change the trajectory of her life after spending New Year's Eve in the gaol for a felony warrant from an outside agency, speeding, having no liability insurance and felony burglary of a habitat, to boot.

Happy New Year, hon, you've just been arrested for a second DWI and assault by contact.
Happy New Year, nimnoo, you've just been arrested for DUIing as a minor.
Happy New Year, you habitual criminal, you've just been arrested because of a motion to revoke your probation and for not adhering to the propositions put forth by a previous court.
Happy New Year, you duo of Bad-Tempered Boobs, you've been arrested for collective assaults with bodily injuries and for making bogus 9-1-1 calls, as well.
Friday, Jan. 3:
How did this foul-tempered Son of Bandera find himself in the clink two days after what could have been a trifecta of idjits arrested for assault with bodily injury? Did he come late to the party or did he just wake up?
So, a Simpleton from San Antonio remains under lock and key for bring MJ and a dangerous drug to Bandera. Isn't that kinda akin to bringing coals to Newcastle?
