Texas Tech Student Arrested for PI (Public Intox) at Tech Football Game- Case Dismissed

While attending a Texas Tech home football game our client was stopped by various officers working at the game.  He did not have any alcohol on him but had been drinking before entering the stadium.  The client asked the officers a few questions while the officers were interviewing him.  Our client was polite but was arrested for the offense of Public Intoxication while on Texas Tech campus.The law requires that to be PI in Lubbock, Midland/Odessa or anywhere else in Texas, a person must so intoxicated as to be a danger to himself or somebody else.  We challenged the Texas Tech Police on this prong as our client might have been drinking but certainly he was not a danger to himself or somebody else just because he was in a public place, i.e. Texas Tech University.
