Law West and East of Privilege Creek

By Judith Pannebaker BCC Editor

Monday, Feb. 2:
• It appears a Bonehead from Bandera hit the trifecta after getting nicked for unlawful carrying, a first DWI and pot possession. However, since the trio of transgressions was just misdemeanors, all might shortly be forgiven.
Tuesday, Feb. 3:
• A local yokel, who, at 61, is certainly old enough to know better, found himself on the wrong side of John Law after being charged with three traffic warrants and another three for failing to appear - misdemeanors all.
• A 55-year-old weedwacker from Pipe Creek got pinched, purportedly for putting pot in his pocket.
• Four counts of possession of a dangerous drug seemed insufficient to keep a denizen of the Creek District in the slammer for very long.
• A Slug from San Antone got tripped up by two misdemeanor traffic warrants.
• On the other hand, a Scofflaw from Sealy remains in the Doo Drop Inn for a trio of seemingly innocuous misdemeanors, including criminal trespass, a traffic warrant and the ubiquitous possession of inhalant paraphernalia, which may or may not have included a rhinestone studded bong.
• After a bout of fisticuffs, a 74-year-old resident of Pipe Creek found himself detained for assault with bodily injury. Who'd a thought it?
Wednesday, Feb. 4:
• A Sap from San Antonio still resides in the Free State of Bantucky Slammer, charged with four - count 'em, four - felony burglaries of a habitat.
• A Cat's Paw from Comfort had to spend several overnights in the quod after being picked up for two misdemeanor "other" warrants and another that indicated he had attempted to make off with something worth more than $1,500, but less than $20,000.
• A misdemeanor warrant from an outside agency required that this Sweetheart from San Antonio be hauled off to the hoosegow and so she was - not that she remained there for any appreciable length of time.
Thursday, Feb. 5:
• A Blockhead from Bandera remains under Lock & Key after it was ascertained he might have committed a felony assault on a public servant.
Saturday, Feb. 7:
• A felony warrant from an outside agency warranted the arrest of a Poseur from Pleasanton and so he was. He remains inside Bandera's Big House.
• Oh, say it ain't so. On a Saturday night, in the middle of Cowboy Mardi Gras, a Soak from San Antone, a Boozer from Bandera and a Hard Drinker from Helotes were all arrested for being unable to hold their collective likker in public.
• Not content to be charged with a second DWI, a Local Lush also apparently had in his possession some pot.
Sunday, Feb. 8:
• Not surprisingly, a weedwacker from the River City was relegated to Bandera's Big House - for but a bit.
• So, not only was this Bandera Bandito arrested for felony assault with bodily injury, he also might find himself shortly being returned to South of the Border - if INS has anything to say about it. We still live in Texas, don't we?
