It's illegal to be drunk in a Dallas bar

Finding drunks in a bar -- what are the chances?

Thu Mar 23, 2006 10:02 AM ET166

SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Reuters) - Texas has begun sending undercover agents into bars to arrest drinkers for being drunk, a spokeswoman for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission said on Wednesday.

The first sting operation was conducted recently in a Dallas suburb where agents infiltrated 36 bars and arrested 30 people for public intoxication, said the commission's Carolyn Beck.

Being in a bar does not exempt one from the state laws against public drunkeness, Beck said.

The goal, she said, was to detain drunks before they leave a bar and go do something dangerous like drive a car.

"We feel that the only way we're going to get at the drunk driving problem and the problem of people hurting each other while drunk is by crackdowns like this," she said.

"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."

She said the sting operations would continue throughout the state.

These are all mild in nature. He's obviously not run with the crowd I party with.

I wonder if being in your own house still exempts you from public drunkenness laws in Texas.

So much for Ron White's "I was drunk in a bar; arrest them" defense.

Don't people have choices let alone rights anymore? Dont they realize that what they're going to create is a lot of drunk bastards at home beating their wives arse because that is what a drunk is trying to avoid in the first place when they go to a bar?

I wouldn't have an issue if they were arresting people leaving a bar that were getting into a car to drive...

Which is not what they are doing in this instance. They are actually entering the establishment and making field evaluations.

Oh, I know... I live just north of Dallas and saw this on the news a week ago. Craziness. I do think there is a serious issue with people getting drunk and then driving, especially around here. I don't think this is the best way to attack it, but I'm not sure what is...

I know that over the years I have (hopefully) become smarter about not doing this, but in my younger and single days there are a number of times where I should not have been driving and waking up the next morning, I didn't really recall driving.

That's scary and very dumb. There's a lot of that going on and while people are upset at this action, I'm not sure what the solution is really.

So this guy comes out of the bar...

he's weaving, almost stumbling to his car. The Sheriff across the road is watching. As other bar patrons are leaving, the drunk finally staggers to his car. He fumbles with his keys, drops them, falls down trying to pick them up, says 'bye to his friends as they pass. The Sheriff is licking his chops. The guy puts it in drive, hits the curb, puts in reverse when the red lights appear. More cars leave the establishment.

The cop asks the drunk to get out of his car and gives him the field soberity test. The "drunk" passes with flying colors. Astonished, the cop ask "What the hell are you doing"...

"Tonight, I'm the Designated Drunk"
