First Spring Break Arrests Are For Drinking And Fighting

Posted: Updated:

A fight breaks out among a group of girls out on Padre Island on Friday night and police step in to break things up and make an arrest.  Captain Ed Shannon told us,"We had a couple of females get into a fight when the officers arrived one of them was able to get away into the crowd and we did get the other half in custody and was arrested for disorderly conduct and another female in the crowd arrested for public intoxication and then we had earlier than that one male arrested on public intoxication." The trouble broke out before 6 o'clock Friday night.There were a few thousand high school students out on J.P. Luby Beach. Many of them bunched up near Zahn road which is the main entrance. After officers stepped in...they made sure to stick around for awhile in case tensions flared again.Fortunately....this seems to be the calm before the storm as College students hit the beaches on Saturday.
