Texas County Sheriff Condemns Prom Night Party Buses

Posted on April 28, 2016

COTULLA, Texas -- The La Salle County sheriff condemned the recent choices made by local parents in contributing toward the charter fee for two buses that were used for what he describes as alcohol-fueled parties by teenagers on Cotulla High School’s prom night.

The sheriff, Miguel Rodriguez, said charges may be filed against parents who helped provide alcohol to minors who were not their own children.

A La Salle County deputy pulled over one of the buses in Cotulla on April 23 after noting a number of violations, among them an apparent attempt at keeping broken passenger doors closed with bungee straps.
