Heinous Crimes High on Friday
The Tom Green County Jail is full of the city’s riff-raff today, after police spent a busy Friday arresting locals for heinous crimes.
There were 43 inmates booked into the county jail over the last 24 hours, and of those, five were arrested on assault charges. The type of assault extends from the comparatively ‘moderate’ to downright despicable, including among them one count of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury, one aggravated sexual assault to a child, and three assault causing bodily injury charges. An additional inmate was booked for terroristic threats of a family member.
Alcohol-related arrests were also high on Friday, with five DWI’s and three public intoxication charges. Drugs followed close behind, with three arrest for possession of pot, four in possession of another controlled substance, and two paraphernalia charges.
Thefts, burglaries and fraud account for six total arrests, theft making up the lion’s share at four, the other two at one each.
There were 29 inmates released on Friday.
