An Abilene Texas man was arrested on an outstanding warrant for smoking in public. Brian Wayne Hendrix was arrested after being pulled over for a traffic stop. He had an outstanding arrest warrant for failing to contest the charge of smoking in a public place or pay a $150 ticket.
Hendrix said “As long as it is legal to smoke, I am going to keep smoking. I’m not going to quit any time soon. I think they are just trying to make more money for the city by messing with the smokers.”
