Law West & East of Privilege Creek

By Judith Pannebaker BCC Editor

Temps are back to normal in the Hill Country, and by the looks of this week's arrest report, it would seem that crime has taken a holiday in Bandera County. I'm not complaining, just commenting. Maybe the criminal element is enjoying the spring-like weather, too.

Tuesday, Feb. 8:
A Babe from Boerne thought she could get away with driving without a license in the Free State of Bantucky. Well, she wuz wrong!
A Lakehills Laddie assaulted someone by conduct thus assuring himself of a few hours stay in Bandera County's X Bar Inn.
Thursday, Feb. 10:
Another Lug from Lakehills, who could also possibly benefit from some anger management sessions, found himself behind bars momentarily charged with misdemeanor assault with bodily injury.
Meanwhile, the above miscreant's perhaps cohort in combat - a Bad Boy from Bandera - was charged with driving without a license and for disorderly contact, to boot.
A Cowboy Capital tippler found himself arrested for being unable to hold his likker in public.
A Bandera matron remains confined to the county can, charged with felony injury to an elderly person and resisting arrest.
A felony warrant to revoke his probation put the skids on the good times of a Criminal from Concan, who, for his trouble, also remains a guest of the Grey Bar Inn.
A Hick from Hondo was slapped in the slammer - where he remains - on account of a felony "other" warrant.
Saturday, Feb. 12:
A miscreant from Medina was busted for his first DWI.
Ditto a souse from San Antone.
In addition to the above arrests, last week, the local constabulary also dealt with seven major vehicular accidents; five disturbances, loud parties or domestic disputes; a trio of harassments; a half dozen thefts; one report of mail tampering; a baker's dozen calls regarding our four-legged friends, including three dog or cat bites; a single report of a shot ringing out; and four calls reporting reckless driving, among others.
A total of 66 jailbirds call the Bandera County Clink "home sweet home" - nine each from Gillespie and Medina counties and seven from Real County. The remainder of the inmates, it would seem, were arrested in our fair community.
