Texas halts arrests of drunks in bars

A controversial Texas program to send undercover agents into bars to arrest drunks has been halted after a firestorm of protest from the public.
The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission has “temporarily suspended” what it called “Operation Last Call” even though it still believes it was worthwhile, commission spokeswoman Carolyn Beck said on Thursday.
“We understand that everything has room for improvement, this included,” she said.
She said most of those arrested in the sting operations had been “dangerously drunk” and might have tried to drive if TABC agents had not busted them.
