Prom after party results in mass MIP citations

A group of 28 students gathered in a field off of Highway 114 towards Jermyn were cited for minor in possession of alcohol following Jacksboro’s prom Saturday night.

Jack County Sheriff’s Deputies working with Texas Parks and Wildlife Game Warden T.J. Tweedle crashed the party in the early morning hours following the dance.

Sheriff Tom Spurlock said the citations were issued and parents were notified. He said he was alerted to the situation by concerned parents.

“I got several personal calls from parents who were tired of burying kids this year,” Spurlock said. “One person I talked to Saturday night said whether they get fined a penny or $100 or whatever, at least we made sure nobody died that night by getting out drinking and driving.”
