Law West and East of Privilege Creek

By Judith Pannebaker BCC Editor

Monday, August 3:
• Every night appears to be Saturday night for this quartet of potentially publically intoxicated boozers from Lakehills, Bandera and Kerrville.
• A Bandera Boyo was caught driving without a license.
• A Bad-Tempered Banderan appears to have assaulted someone by contact and suffered the usual consequences, e.g., arrest and incarceration for a bit.
• A pair of warrants from outside agencies put the skids on the good times of a Slug from San Antone.
• So did I miss a party in Bandera last Monday or what? A Kerr-Vert was apparently picked up not only for being pissed in public, but also for resisting arrest and for felony assault of a public service. He or she - Who can tell with some of these names? - bonded out the next day, suitably chastened, we assume.
Tuesday, August 4:
• A Miscreant from Medina found himself locked up for a while on the strength of a misdemeanor warrant from an outside agency.
• However, a San Antonio Scofflaw was not so lucky. After being charged with five felonies, including two judgment nisi(s), a failure-to-appear warrant and two other warrants from an outside agency, this gink still finds himself confined to the county can. For not-so-avid Judge Judy watchers, judgment nisi is defined by Yahoo Answers as "a judgment that it is not final and an order to show cause why it should not be final is pending. Nisi is usually entered in divorce proceedings where the judgment has been entered but there is a 90-day period attached until it reaches finality. I hope this is the info you need." Well, thanx, Yahoo.
• A Kermit from Kerrville resisted arrest and found himself thrown in the clink for his lack of restraint.
Wednesday, August 5:
• Whereas, a Pipe Creep has been charged with assault with bodily injury.
• A Lawbreaker from Lakehills was shown to the slammer - where he thankfully remains - after being charged with felony aggravated sexual assault.
Thursday, August 6:
• After a potentially Potted Pipe Creekian slid behind a wheel, he summarily found himself charged with a first DWI.
• A Lout from the Lake District has been sent to the slammer for criminal mischief.
Friday, August 7:
• A Bodacious, But Bad, Babe from Bandera was nicked for being dogged by a felony warrant from an outside agency.
• A Pipe Creek Cretin found himself in lockup after he seemingly contacted someone in an assaultive manner.
• Now comes a pair of weedwackers from the Lake and Creek Districts. One was caught and released for possessing pot and resisting arrest but the other remains under Lock & Key for a quartet of misdemeanors, including pot and the pipe to smoke it with and also for felony possession of a Penalty Group 1 controlled substance - all due to Reefer Madness, no doubt. Dude, why can't you just try the straight life for a while?!
Sunday, August 9:
• A Castroville Villain remains collecting "three hots & a cot," courtesy of the good citizens of Bandera County after he was found to be dragging behind him a misdemeanor warrant that may revoke his probation and a felony warrant from an outside agency, in addition to failing to identify himself - to the arresting deputy, we presume.
• Yet another weedwacker, this one from River City, was caught in Bantucky.
• As were a lawfully wedded pair of local yokels, I think. They also remain guests of the X Bar Inn after being picked up for having in their possession some blunt, requisite pipes and PG 1 controlled substances. Of course the one thing missing from their stash was a valid driver's a license. RU kidding me?
