Law West & East of Privilege Creek

By Judith Pannebaker BCC Editor

Monday, Jan. 9:
A denizen of the Pipe District ought to know that one still needs a license in order to drive legally - even in the Free State of Bantucky.

Two Scofflaws from San Antonio apparently were caught mixing it up because they were both arrested for assault with bodily injury.

Tuesday, Jan. 10:
Not only did a local yokel fail to appear before a previous court, but he was also picked up for - you guessed it - driving without a license.

A crapulent Pipe Creeker was found to have been befuddled behind a wheel for an ostensible first time.

Wednesday, Jan. 11:
So, not only was this Slug from San Antone being dogged by a failure-to-appear warrant, but he was also found to be driving without a license, but with an expired license plate.

Being caught with a felony controlled substance and the paraphernalia with which to partake of it did not stop the permeations of a Cowboy Capital Culprit for long.

Thursday, Jan. 12:
A shortsighted Slob from San Antonio remains in the slammer after being seized for felony possession of a controlled substance, felony manufacturing and delivery of said controlled substance and unlawful possession of a firearm - he being a felon and all - as well as misdemeanor possession of inhalant paraphernalia and, for good measure,
driving without a license.

A 19-year-old voluptuous Vixen from Von Ormy also found herself a guest of the Gray Bar Inn after being pinched for felony manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance and felony delivery of a "simulated" controlled substance, in addition to weed wacking and possession of inhalant paraphernalia. Well, she has quite a career ahead of her, don't she?

A pesky misdemeanor warrant from an "other" agency put the skids on the good times of a Bandera Boyo - for a day at least.

Saturday, Jan. 14:
Another day, another absent-minded Banderan caught operating a motor vehicle without benefit of a license.

Now comes yet another Sinner from San Antone arrested for a slew of charges, including felony evading arrest with a vehicle, misdemeanors for driving without a license times two and a quartet of traffic offenses, the same number of misdemeanor traffic warrants and, for good measure, an "other" misdemeanor warrant, as well. For all his trouble, the 44 year old spent but a single night in the county can.

Two 20something schmucks - also from San Antonio - brought various and sundry controlled substances, as well as weed, to the Hill County and were busted for their offenses. One remains in lockup but the other bailed out the next day.

An elbow-bender from Pipe Creek was charged with a second DWI - and counting.

A total of 67 jailbirds call the County Quod "home sweet home" - 24 from Medina County, 11 from Gillespie County, half dozen from Real County and a trio from Kimble County.

The rest came courtesy of you know where.
