2022 Rewind: TX Man Drove with Lit BBQ Pit While Intoxicated
This was one of the first 'Texas' type headlines to come out of Texas for 2022! On January 5, 2022, Deputies with Constable Mark Herman's Office responded to a call in reference to reports of a truck on fire. Upon deputies' arrival, it was discovered that driver was traveling with a lit BBQ pit in the bed of his truck creating a large fire. The Facebook status did not say if there was BBQ on the actual grill.
Deputies determined that the driver, Jay Rojas, displayed signs of intoxication. Standardized Field Sobriety Tests were conducted and it was discovered that he was intoxicated. He was also found to be in possession of Cocaine. The official statement from Constable Mark Harman: "Jay Rojas was arrested and booked in the Harris County Jail, charged with Driving While Intoxicated and Possession of a Controlled Substance. His bond and court information have not been set at this time."
WEIRDEST DRUG BUST AT THE TEXAS BORDER
The border between Texas and Mexico is very important for drug cartels trying to smuggle their wares into the country. Cartels are trying to sneak in any drug that you can think of. From crystal meth and heroin to marijuana and counterfeit pills, there is no shortage of illicit substances coming up from south of the border and into the United States via Mexico and Texas. The further north the drugs make it in the United States the more money the cartel makes. Check out some of the unusual attempts that have been made.
