Can't Spell "Bust" Without "Bus"
Your favorite Barking Dog, Avi Adelman, has posted this a.m. a missive from a DPD Central Patrol Division sergeant concerning a Thursday-night SMU fraternity throwdown that was, for the most part, shut down before it could reach Lower Greenville. Seems someone tipped off the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission that "a large SMU fraternity was having multiple parties with a majority of underage patrons at Lower Greenville Bars on Thursday night."
So TABC got on it, called DPD for an assist and warned the unnamed bars to cancel the parties -- and one out of three didn't, according to the e-mail, resulting in a couple of arrests. When the fraternity got word of the imminent bust, they re-routed their chartered buses to other bars -- which, from the sound of it, the cops had no trouble finding. Because they're buses. --Robert Wilonsky
