TABC Suspends Arrests Inside Bars

The only surprising thing about this is that it took so long. Arresting people inside bars who “appear” to be drunk (no objective tests were ever given) is insulting and silly. In one case, a man was arrested at a hotel bar, the very hotel he was staying in. Clearly, the goal of this operation was not to keep people from driving drunk but just an exercise in governmental power, wrongly decided and poorly implemented.

Good riddance.
