Niallson Dorsey Price, 31, has been sentenced in a Galveston County courtroom to serve 6 years in prison for Online Solicitation of a Minor who didn’t actually exist.
Witness testimony during the trial revealed that the Galveston Police Department was conducting an undercover sting operation focused on identifying and arresting individuals engaged in exploiting children. On April 23, 2016, Price replied to a posting on Craigslist and then began an illicit conversation over a messaging application, Kik, with a person he believed was 14 years old. The person was actually a police officer.
Price was arrested and charged after traveling to Galveston with the intent to commit sexual acts with what he thought was a minor. The State entered into evidence copies of the messages sent by Price, including a photo of himself sent to the officer. Law Enforcement were also able to tie the account the messages were sent from to Price.
After a day of testimony, the jury retired to deliberate on Tuesday afternoon. The jury returned with a guilty verdict on the Wednesday morning. The punishment phase immediately followed. During punishment, the State presented evidence of Price’s prior conviction for felony possession of cocaine from earlier this year. The State also told the jury to protect the children of this community with its sentence and ensure that, at least for a while, Price would not be able to prey upon children.
The jury took a few hours to deliberate and returned yesterday shortly before noon with its punishment verdict.
Price faced a sentence range of 2 years to 10 years in prison. The jury set Price’s punishment at 6 years. Price will have to serve at least one-fourth of his sentence before being eligible for parole. Price will also be required to register as a sex offender for 10 years, annually, once released from prison or parole.
On Thursday August 17, 2017 at approximately 2120 (that’s 9:20PM civilian time) deputies were flagged down by several frantic citizens. They reported seeing a woman on the Hwy 646 overpass, she appeared to be ready to jump from the overpass into the traffic below. The overpass goes across Highway 45 in the Dickinson – League City area.
Deputies responded with emergency equipment activated and arrived on location within a minute. When Deputies Fred Boas and Daniel Banda arrived they found a female dangling over the side of a over pass. She was holding on to the railing with both hands. While another officer already on scene drew her attention towards him, Deputy Boas was approaching from the opposite direction. As soon as Deputy Boas was within the reach of the female Deputy Banda ran to her aid as well. Deputy Boas was able to grab her torso just as she was letting go of the railing. Assisted by Deputy Banda, and other officers on scene, she was pulled back over the railing to safety. She was transported by E.M.S. to UTMB Victory Lakes for treatment. By their heroic efforts, deputies were able to save this young person’s life.
Several businesses near the 4400 block of State Highway 3 were burglarized during the night time hours between August 12 and August 16. Video surveillance of one of the burglaries showed a male with numerous tattoos inside the business. The video was shared on social media by the business owner and detectives began receving information identifying a possible suspect by nickname.

Patrol officers located Ortega-Torres in the 3400 block of IH-45 on August 16, and he was arrested for possession of marijuana. Detectives continued to follow up with information and interviewing Ortega-Torres.

On Thursday, August 17, 2017 at approximately 5:25PM, a League City Police Officer was on routine patrol in the Home Depot parking lot located at 3200 Gulf Freeway S. As the officer neared a loading dock, he observed a male and female running to a car parked near the loading dock.
When the subjects saw the officer, they quickly entered the vehicle and traveled west through the parking lot at a high rate of speed. The officer activated his patrol unit’s emergency lights and siren in an attempt to stop the vehicle, but the driver refused to stop. The vehicle exited the parking lot, entered onto the northbound freeway access road and then entered onto the main, northbound lane of I-45 S. Traveling at a high rate of speed attempting to evade the officer, the suspect vehicle continued to travel northbound on the outside shoulder, passed over Highway 96 W., and hit a barrier when the shoulder ended. After hitting the barrier, the suspect vehicle hit an uninvolved vehicle that had stopped for traffic on the freeway. During the vehicle crash, the male suspect was ejected through the front windshield and then attempted to run from the scene before being taken into custody by the pursuing officer. The female suspect, who had been driving the suspect vehicle, was also taken into custody. Both suspects were transported to an area hospital for treatment. The male and female passenger of the vehicle that was struck by the suspect vehicle refused treatment at the scene.
Charges against the evading suspects are pending.
A man shot two kids inside a car that he got into an accident with and then fled the scene Friday night in Galveston, according to police.
The shooting occurred around 7:24 p.m. in the 4900 block of Avenue J, Galveston, police said in a news release. According to witnesses, two cars were involved in a minor accident and then pulled over to the side of the road.
A man inside a green car exited his vehicle and then was assaulted by two juvenile passengers from the other white car.
The man who was assaulted went back to his car, took out a gun and then began to fire several shots into the windshield of the other white car. After firing the shots, he got back into his car and fled the scene.
The female driver in the other car drove the two juvenile shooting victims to University of Texas Medical Branch for treatment. One of the victims is in critical condition, but the other is in stable condition.
On Friday August 4, 2017 at approximately 11:53 am, Galveston County Sheriff’s responded to 4925 Chase Court Dr in the Chase Park Subdivision Bacliff, Texas. A 911 call was received reporting a 2 year old female had drowned at the Chase Park Pool.
Upon arrival, the 2 year old was lethargic but breathing. Preliminary investigation revealed that the 2 year old and her older sibling had been brought to the pool by their 15 year old babysitter. At one point, the 2 year old was resting on the side of the pool. Minutes later, another child who is 11 years of age noticed the 2 year old was at the bottom of the pool. This child brought the 2 year old to the surface. The 15 year old babysitter began life saving measures which resulted in the child regaining consciousness and was breathing upon our arrival. The child was taken by EMS to Clear Lake Regional Medical Center, accompanied by her grandmother, who lived nearby and responded.
The condition of the child remains unknown at this time.
At about 9:00 pm, Dickinson Police received a call of a possible intoxicated driver in the 2800 block of Gulf Freeway.
Officers arrived and found a 1998 Toyota facing the wrong direction on the southbound lanes of the feeder road with a flat tire. A male subject ran from the officers onto the main portion of the freeway and eventually across the freeway to a business on the northbound side of the road. While officers were searching the parking lot of the business, the male ran back across the freeway. Officers continued their search and about an hour later were eventually able to locate the male hiding under a vehicle at a car dealership in the area.
22 year old Dresnner Brayner Xiloj-Herrera from Webster was arrested and charged with one count of evading arrest or detention and one count of resisting arrest, search or transportation. Both charges are misdemeanors and bond was set at $2,500.00 for each charge.
On August 15th at 11 a.m. the doors will open to the grand opening festivities for Galveston’s first community swimming pool. A historic moment for the City, the $4.1 million project will provide residents with a state-of-the-art facility, which includes a recreational pool with kid-friendly play structures and a body slide, as well as an eight-lane short course yard pool for hosting swim meets.
This new addition to the Galveston Parks System will give the City the ability to provide fitness classes and swimming lessons. It will also provide the opportunity to offer community safety courses, such as first aid, CPR and lifeguard training. Funding for the project is being provided by the Industrial Development Corporation, Better Parks for Galveston, a grant from Texas Parks & Wildlife, the Neighborhood Revitalization Fund and numerous foundation grants and private donations.
“This community swimming pool shows the tenacity of the people of Galveston. They set a goal that had never been accomplished before and saw it through to completion as a team,” said Mayor James D. Yarbrough. “This facility will bring joy to Galveston families for years to come.”
The pool will open on Friday August 4th to public, in advance of the grand opening. During this period, entry fees to the pool will be waived while staff works to ensure that all operations run smoothly.
The pool’s grand opening ceremonies will offer remarks from those who made this project possible as well as City officials, followed by a ceremonial ribbon cutting at 11:30 a.m. The festivities will also include refreshments provided by Better Parks for Galveston from Noon – 3:00 p.m
Galveston County District Attorney Jack Roady announced today that Chazz Jamikel Wigrys, 24, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for three charges of Aggravated Robbery with a Deadly Weapon and 5 years in prison for Evading in a Motor Vehicle.
On the night of December 9, 2016 Wigrys and his co-defendant, Leslie Demond Williams, committed a string of armed robberies at three convenience stores in Texas City, Galveston, and Jamaica Beach. Both Wirgrys, who drove the getaway vehicle, and Williams were arrested that night following a high speed chase along the Seawall in Galveston. Wigrys was identified as the look-out person during the robberies and Williams was the gunman. Officers found a mask in the vehicle and a bag full of money and loaded magazine near where Williams was arrested.
Wigrys who had no felony criminal history and was eligible for probation, faced a punishment range of 5 to 99 years, or life, for each of the Aggravated Robbery cases and 2 to 10 years for the Evading in a Motor Vehicle case. Today, he accepted the State’s punishment offer, pled guilty to all four charges, and was sentenced to 20 years in the Institutional Division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Wigrys will have to serve at least half of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
Wigrys was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Adam Poole in the 405th District Court, with Judge Michelle Slaughter presiding. The investigation was conducted by the Texas City Department, the Galveston Police Department, and the Jamaica Beach Police Department.
Wigrys’ co-defendant, Leslie Williams, was convicted by a jury in July 2017 for three charges of Aggravated Robbery and sentenced to 99 years in prison for each charge.
STATE LEGISLATURE PUTTING THE BRAKES ON TEXAS CITY ANNEXING SAN LEON WITHOUT SAN LEON RESIDENTS APPROVAL:
The Texas Senate has passed Senate Bill 6, which would allow residents of areas up for possible annexation by cities to hold a referendum on whether the annexation can go through.
Under current law, a city can annex any territory within its extraterritorial jurisdiction without the support of the people who would be annexed. Backers of annexation reform say allowing people to vote on where they live is a fundamental American right. They point out that this is the law in most other states. Detractors say allowing citizens to vote on annexation hurts a city’s ability to plan for expansion in a rapidly growing Texas.
The bill will now head to the Texas House of Representatives, where it has some strong support, but is opposed by representatives from urban areas of the state. If the House passes the measure, it will become law on Sept. 1st. Governor Abbott is expected to sign the bill, as he placed it on the agenda when he called for the special session of the legislature.
This new law will make it impossible for San Leon to be annexed by Texas City unless the people of San Leon vote to be annexed.
Deputies responded to a report of an accidental shooting on Sunday, August 30. This occurred in the 4700 block of 6th St. in Bacliff. When deputies arrived, at approximately 6:20 pm, they found the boyfriend of the victim standing outside the residence. The victim was found on a couch with a bullet wound to the head. She was breathing but unconscious. EMS arrived and requested life flight for transport.
According to the boyfriend, he was showing a gun to the victim when the gun went off. He said prior to him showing her, he removed the ammunition clip from the gun. But, he didn’t realize there was a live round in the chamber of the gun.
The victim, identified as Kaitlyn Trammell of Galveston, was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston where she was pronounced dead on Tuesday.
According to Galveston County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Maj. Douglas Hudson, the victim was watching a movie with boyfriend Orlando Martinez at his home in the 4700 block of 6th Street in Bacliff at the time of the accident.
“A scene came on the movie that showed a gun and Martinez reportedly said ‘Oh, I have a gun’ and proceeded to take out the gun and show a Smith and Wesson 9mm gun to the victim,” Hudson said. “Martinez removed the clip from the gun, not realizing there was still a live round in the chamber.”
There were 2 other people in the residence when the incident occurred. Neither one of them claimed to have witnessed the incident. One of the persons was later identified as Jared Koehler from Santa Fe, Texas. He removed the gun from the residence and discarded it at an unknown location at that time. During the course of the investigation, deputies learned where the gun may possibly be. The Galveston County Sheriff’s Office dive team later recovered the gun in a creek in the Santa Fe area of the county.
Orlando Martinez was arrested and charged with Manslaughter with an $80,000.00 Bond. Jared Koehler turned himself in on a warrant for Tampering/Fabricating Physical Evidence with a $25,000.00 Bond.
Galveston County District Attorney Jack Roady announced today that Billy Wayne Denison, 38, was sentenced yesterday to 50 years in prison for Intoxication Manslaughter.
On Monday, July 17, 2017 Denison pled guilty in the 122nd District Court and requested to have the court determine his punishment. A punishment hearing began Tuesday morning. During the three day hearing the State presented testimony and other evidence that detailed for the court the events that led to the death of Roger Reed, a Santa Fe resident, on September 26, 2015.
Galveston Police Department (GPD) officers were dispatched to major accident on the northbound lanes of the Causeway at around 1:13 am on Saturday, September 26, 2015. Upon arrival, officers found Roger Reed lying in the roadway, unconscious and bleeding. The motorcycle Reed was driving had extensive rear-end damage. Reed was transported to the hospital where he was immediately pronounced dead as a result of his injuries. Medical testimony revealed that Reed had multiple skull fractures, chest injuries, and a spinal fracture.
Officers found Denison, in his vehicle that was stopped at the bottom of the Causeway near the Tiki Island exit, drinking a bottle of Kaluha White Russian. There was also an empty bottle of Kaluha in the front cup holder and a broken bottle of Bud Light Lime on the pavement near Denison’s driver door. While speaking to Denison, officers noted that he smelled strongly of alcohol, had a slurred speech, swayed, and stumbled. Dennison told a Firefighter, who was checking him for injuries, that “I was going a hundred bro. I was going a hundred.” Denison admitted to hitting the motorcycle and that in addition to the alcohol found in his vehicle he had drank beer prior to driving. Officers obtained a search warrant for Denison’s blood after he refused to voluntarily give a sample. Analysis on the blood sample taken was conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety Houston Crime Lab. The results showed that Denison had a blood alcohol level of 0.137 when the sample was taken.
GPD Sergeant Robert Sanderson, the Accident Reconstructionist, determined that the victim was traveling north in the outside lane when he was struck from behind by Denison. Denison’s vehicle and Reed’s motorcycle were stuck together and continued traveling north for several hundred feed before the motorcycle dislodged. The impact appeared to have taken place at the top of the Causeway based on skid marks, gouge marks, and scuff marks starting there and continuing to where the motorcycle was found.
Sgt. Sanderson also testified that based on evidence at the scene, he determined that Denison appeared to continue to drive way from the based on skid marks and oil on the road beginning a short distance from the motorcycle and ending where Denison’s vehicle stopped due to the damage it sustained.
The owner of the vehicle Denison was driving testified that she was a friend of Denison’s and that he had taken her vehicle without her permission. This was confirmed by Denison during his own testimony. Testimony about Denison’s time in prison revealed that he had a lengthy disciplinary history which included testing positive for drugs and multiple fights.
Denison faced a punishment range of 25 to 99 years, or life, in prison because of two felony enhancements; a 2003 conviction for Escape and a 2005 conviction for Burglary of a Habitation. In addition to the enhancements, the State presented multiple other felony and misdemeanor convictions. In 1998 Denison was convicted of Possession of Marijuana and Evading Arrest. In 2001 he was convicted of Driving While Intoxicated, and Failure to Appear. He was conviction in Georgia in 2002 for Driving Under the Influence. In 2003 Denison had convictions for Criminal Trespass, Resisting Arrest, Criminal Mischief, and Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle. In 2005 he had convictions for Assault Causing Bodily Injury and a second conviction for Burglary of a Habitation. Lastly, in 2014 he was convicted for Reckless Driving.
During closing arguments, the State argued that since Denison turned 17 years old he has been in and out of prison and jail, doing nothing but committing crimes. Assistant District Attorney Kayla Allen told the Court to think about “how many victims have to suffer at the hands of the defendant. How much is enough.” Denison has 5 felony and 10 misdemeanor convictions, many involving victims. ADA Allen argued that not only did Denison commit another victim he crime, he killed someone. The State asked the Court to sentence Denison to life in prison.
The Court took a short recess to consider the evidence and arguments before returning with a verdict of 50 years in the Institutional Division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. The Court also made an affirmative finding of a deadly weapon. Denison will have to serve at least one-half of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
Denison was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Kayla Allen and Ross Hill in the 122nd District Court, with visiting Judge Mary Nell Crapitto presiding. The investigation was conducted by the Galveston Police Department.
A tanker crew came to the rescue of five people after their boat capsized 12 miles off the coast of Galveston on Saturday afternoon.
The crew of Overseas Texas City contacted the Coast Guard to report the capsized vessel just after noon on Saturday. The tanker crew was then able to navigate to the capsized boat and rescue everybody aboard, none of whom were injured.
“If not for the courage of the fearless crew of the tanker Overseas Texas City, the outcome of today’s events may not have been as successful,” said U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer 1st Class Chris Rendon. “It is incredibly important that boaters are aware of their surroundings and prepared for emergency situations.”
A Coast Guard crew transported the rescued boaters to shore.
It’s not immediately clear why the vessel capsized.
Galveston County District Attorney Jack Roady announced today that Charles Lynch, 59, was sentenced yesterday to 45 years in prison for Possession of a Cocaine with Intent to Deliver.
Lynch was arrested in September 2015 for possessing more than four grams of crack cocaine following the execution of a search warrant at his residence. On Monday, July 17, 2017 Lynch’s jury trial began in the 405th District Court.
On September 23, 2015, La Marque Police Department officers, with the assistance of other local agencies, executed a search and arrest warrant at a residence in La Marque. The search warrant was the result of an investigation into illegal drug trafficking by Lynch at his residence. Lynch and several other people were found in the residence when officers made entry.
During the search of the home, officers identified a bedroom as belonging to Lynch. The bedroom contained several items belonging to Lynch that included mail, prescription bottles, a cell phone, and bills all with Lynch’s name on them. On a dresser, with Lynch’s cell phone, was found several pieces of crack cocaine and a knife with cocaine residue. In a trash can next to the dresser, officers found several torn plastic baggies. In a trash can in the kitchen officers found additional torn plastic baggies. The lead investigating officer testified that plastic baggies like the ones found are commonly used to package illegal drugs, like crack cocaine, for sale.
The drugs found were sent to the Texas Department of Public Safety Crime Lab for testing. The results of the tests confirmed that the substances found in Lynch’s bedroom was cocaine and weighed more than 4 grams.
The jury heard closing arguments Wednesday morning and retired to deliberate. They returned with a guilty verdict shortly before 1:00 p.m., after deliberating for about an hour. Lynch elected to have the court determine his punishment. The punishment phase began Thursday afternoon. Lynch faced a punishment range of 15 to 99 years, or life, in prison because of one felony enhancement; a 2006 conviction for Delivery of a Controlled Substance.
During the punishment phase, the State presented evidence of the felony enhancement conviction and evidence that Lynch had three additional drug-related felony convictions from 1990 and 2006. Assistant District Attorney Kiara Gradney told the Court that Lynch’s history has shown that he hasn’t been and won’t be a productive citizen. ADA Gradney argued that Lynch’s convictions, which go back to 1990, are evidence that nothing will deter him from a life crime.
The Court took a brief recess before returning with its punishment verdict. After considering the evidence and the arguments the Court set Lynch’s punishment at 45 years, in the Institutional Division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Lynch will have to serve at least one-fourth of his sentence before being eligible for parole.
Lynch was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorneys Kiara Gradney and Adam Poole in the 405th District Court, with Judge Michelle Slaughter presiding. The investigation was conducted by the La Marque Police Department.
During the search of the residence, officers also found $515.00 that they believed to be the proceeds from Lynch’s illegal drug activity. The money was seized and later forfeited to the State as contraband in January 2016.
A Texas man is seeking monetary damages after allegedly suffering injuries in a motorcycle accident.
The driver of the motorcycle was allegedly drunk after being sold alcohol at a pair of nightclubs owned by ADA Investments of Dickinson and A&D Investments, which are listed as the defendants in the suit filed in the Galveston County District Court.
The plaintiff in the case is Jarrell Bryant and the suit was filed by his attorney David Romagosa of Houston on June 2.
The nightclubs named in the suit are the Heartbreakers/The Club, located in Dickinson, and Jackie’s Brickhouse, located in Kemah, which are owned by the defendants.
Both establishments are claimed to have sold alcoholic beverages to Eric McDougle, who was allegedly intoxicated, the complaint said.
The complaint said that “Eric McDougle was obviously intoxicated to the extent that Eric McDougle presented a clear danger to himself and to other persons at Heartbreakers and Jackies.’’
The complaint said that after leaving Heartbreakers the night of Sept. 30, 2016, or the early morning of Oct. 1, McDougle drove his motorcycle to Jackie’s.
“McDougle was not able to safely ride his motorcycle due to his intoxication and caused an accident with Jarrell Bryant,” the complaint said.
Bryant had a leg amputated and the complaint said the plaintiff has not recovered and has numerous other injuries which are permanent in nature. The complaint said Bryant suffered physical pain and mental anguish and likely will suffer in the future.
Bryant is seeking damages from the defendants and pre- and post-judgment interest.
The Galveston yacht captain caught living a double life under a secret alias was sentenced Wednesday to three years in federal prison, resolving one case but leaving unanswered questions about the mysterious deaths of her husband and young child nearly three decades ago.
Cynthia Knox — known for years to island residents as Capt. Christina White — choked up in court before the sentence was handed down over her use of a dead child’s name in an effort to start over amid investigations at the time into the family members’ deaths in California.
The 53-year-old League City woman mouthed desperate last words to her supporters as she was led away after offering a somber statement framing her arrest as a chance at a “clean slate.”
But prosecutors described the motive in the case as “egregious” and the background as “perhaps even gruesome,” citing ties to the two deaths, which together netted a hefty insurance payout.
“Your Honor, she changed her identity to hide from her relationship to these deaths, and the financial windfall she gained from this should not be ignored,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Adam Goldman said as he argued for a three-year prison term.
Knox’s attorney, John T. Floyd III, heartily objected, pointing out there was “not a shred of evidence” connecting his client to the deaths.
“Honestly, I was disgusted by their attempts to allude that she had anything to do with the death of her daughter,” he said in response to the prosecution’s claims.

A woman has admitted voting for Donald Trump twice during last year’s American election. Terri Lynn Rote of Iowa has pleaded guilty to election misconduct and will be sentenced in August.
A registered Republican and Trump supporter, Rote was arrested when she tried to cast a second ballot for the election last November. She told police that she believed Trump’s claims that the election would be rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton, and thought her first ballot would be changed to a Clinton vote.
Election fraud carries a maximum sentence of five years in jail, but court papers show attorneys are recommending her sentence is suspended or deferred.
Jane White, defending, said Rote wasn’t able to focus for long periods and had other ‘cognitive limitations’. Judge Michael Huppert ruled that sentencing will take place on August 15.
Rote’s first ballot helped Trump comfortably defeat Clinton in Iowa, where he won the state’s six electoral college votes.
The state also prosecuted convicted felon Eric Hook for casting a ballot even though he lost his right when convicted. Court documents did not state who Hook voted for, but he was sentenced to two years of probation.
The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) has added Briggs Clinton Lawhon, 57, to the Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives list, and a cash reward up to $7,500 is now being offered for information leading to his capture. Lawhon, affiliated with the Bandidos Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, is wanted for parole violation and theft. All tips are guaranteed to be anonymous.
Lawhon has been wanted since December 2015. He has ties to Pleasanton and Victoria, and also to Anderson County (including the city of Palestine, which is his last known address). He may also frequent the San Antonio area. Lawhon’s criminal history includes aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, assault, burglary of habitation, and delivery of methamphetamine. For more information or updates in the event of his arrest, see his wanted bulletin at: http://www.dps.texas.gov/Texas10MostWanted/fugitiveDetails.aspx?id=369.
Lawhon is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs approximately 160 pounds. He has “BANDIDOS” tattooed on his right wrist; a tattoo of the “1%” diamond on his left forearm; and other tattoos on his back, arms, feet, wrists, left leg and left hand. Lawhon may wear glasses, and may be known by the nickname of “Skip.”
According to DPS, Lawhon is affiliated with the Bandidos Outlaw Motorcycle Gang and has a lengthy criminal history consisting of felony convictions for Aggravated Robbery with a Deadly Weapon, Burglary of a Habitation, and Delivery of Methamphetamine.
On February 18, 2016, the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles issued a warrant for Parole Violation. He has also been wanted by the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office for Theft since December 2015.
Lawhon has past work experience as a plumber.
Texas Crime Stoppers, which is funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division, offers cash rewards to any person who provides information that leads to the arrest of one of the Texas 10 Most Wanted fugitives or sex offenders.

Do not attempt to apprehend these fugitives; they are considered armed and dangerous.
Governor Abbott has signed House Bill 1935 into law, and starting September 1st, you can carry around any kind of knife or bladed weapon you want.
Switchblades, Machetes, Ninja swords, Broadswords, big ol’ Crocodile Dundee style Bowie knives, spears, all will be legal to carry around with you in public.
You’ll be able to walk into a daycare center with a machete strapped around your waist, and nobody can do a damn thing to stop you. Don’t mess with Texas!
