Today's entry in the never-ending line of "Texas: WTF?" situations...
Texas arresting people in bars for being drunk
Here's the quote I love: "The goal, she said, was to detain drunks before they leave a bar and go do something dangerous like drive a car."
Ummm, a suggestion, if you don't mind? Rather than burden the state's already overtaxed courts system (I mean, Tom DeLay's deal alone must be stretching everybody thin, right?), why don't you...oh, I don't know...call them a cab?
(Thanks to LabKat for the tip.)
