This surprises you? :-?

Then again, I'm in Texas, so I've always been aware of possibly getting arrested for PI (Public Intoxication). This isn't a new thing, it's always been this way.

Dang, if I ever go to a bar in Texas I'll have to keep an eye out for the Liquor Gestapo! :-D

Oh man, that sucks for the local bars. People are just going to stay home and drink where it's safe. That is, until Texas passes a law that allows police to enter your home and arrest you if you've been drinking. :-t

I can understand PI making sense if some fool is walking down the street being rowdy and making a scene, but a bar should be a reasonable place to be drunk. Here in Tempe AZ, police will often stand in a bar and watch the people who leave, making sure the drunkies don't get behind a wheel. To me, that makes more sense.

This isn't a new law. A buddy of mine was arrested and jailed overnight, a couple of years ago for being drunk in a bar. This isn't a new law or anything. ;-)

You heard Ron White's new one? It's called: You Can't Fix Stupid. He's got a T-Shirt that says that one the front, and on the back it says: Stupid Is Forever. :-D

I've heard the new one on CD already. Not bad at all. :-)

Better them burn it off in the drunk tank than behind the wheel of a car or getting into a bar fight.

What seems the worst part of this to me is that they were arresting people in a hotel bar. I guess I can understand wanting people not to drink/drive (though I think there are better methods), but aren't the people in the hotel bar generally patrons of the hotel? What are they going to do, drink and stumble?

There are a lot of dangerous and stupid things people do when they're intoxicated, other than get behind the wheel of a car," Beck said. "People walk out into traffic and get run over, people jump off of balconies trying to reach a swimming pool and miss."


Oh, I see. We're trying to stop the pervasive trend of getting drunk and jumping off balconies into a pool but missing.

Aren't there better ways to utilize our police?

Watch them start arresting people at their hotel minibar. Gotta love the technicalities that can result in legal loopholes.
