Lower Greenville


One thousand drunks on the street... and counting

Effective June 20, 2013

This list is based on Dallas Police Department records at the time of the arrest and subsequent posting. We do not and will follow each case until it's conclusion - you were arrested, and that's all we care to post. If you decide that it's imperative to have your name removed from this list, such as for a security clearance, family matters or simply because you don't want your friends to know you were busted from being drunk, there is an option.

You can pay an administrative fee of $251 to have your name removed. In addition to having it deleted from this site (and only this site, not the whole Internet), you will recieve a signed affidavit from me (the publisher) confirming that your name was removed on such and such a date.

IMPORTANT - Removing your name from this site does not prevent the Dallas Police Department or any other agency from releasing this information again. In order to remove your name from official (read - government) records, you will need to hire an attorney to start a process called expunction. It ain't cheap but it can be done.

To start the process, send an email to the publisher at this link - avi@barkingdogs.org. We will reply promptly.

BD has been pulling records from the Dallas Police Department and other city agencies, trying to line up hard statistical facts to go along with the urban legends we have heard about Lower Greenville all these years.

One legend seems to be very true: Lower Greenville is a great place to get shit-faced drunk.

Conversely: It's a great place to get busted for public intoxication.

A Public Intox citation means that you were not only a danger to others around you, but you very much a danger to yourself and could not be allowed to continue on your way wherever (even if you were adamant in insisting that Martians were waiting for you up the street).

According to DPD stats just released, nearly 1,000 persons were cited for Public Intoxication in the two DPD police beats around Lower Greenville between January 1, 2005 and the end of August 2006. That list also includes arrests on Henderson, Gaston, Fitzhugh etc. There are some names that appear more than once, a few married couples, and bunches on the big holidays like St. Patricks and New Years Eve. (Public intox is not the same as DWI/DUI and is not included on this database).

But more than 600 people were cited for Public Intox in the Lower Greenville area, based on a search of street names within walking distance. and BD has posted every single name on this website. We deleted listings for incidents on streets that are not within walking distance (eg 4000 Ross Avenue).

It ain't about the WE, it's about the HER

The LGNA newsletter - which is usually mistaken for litter on the front step - made its way to the Dog Pound and other houses in the area.

The National Night Out story closes with an invitation for participants to plan for the 2007 event - they reserved the park before BD could.

BD just loves the paragraph after the invite...

It's not abut ME, it's about WE. It's OUR neighborhood. Let's come together to make it safer and even more enjoyable.

This WE and ME stuff is coming right out of NSA Hunt's office.

Oh, no, you ain't parking here!

Scumbar patrons could not read a NO PARKING sign if their life (or car) depended on it - at least until they were too drunk to stand up.

And even fewer can read a NO PARKING / TOWING ENFORCED sign in the parking lot of a business near Lower Greenville no matter their sobriety.

So it comes as no surprise that some local businesses are about to get really nasty to scumbar patrons who think they can use the parking lot of these establishments in the evenings.

It sucks (financially) to own a bar on Lower Greenville

After nearly six years of watching - and walking - Lower Greenville, BD has always wondered; How do the scumbars make a profit on just six hours of heavy business a weekend. Most of these places are only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

For a few years, BD would pull Texas sales tax reports and calculate Mixed Beverage sales (the hard stuff) for area bars as compared to other businesses in ZIP Code 75206. That got kind of tedious after a few years.

But recently BD asked the state for a database showing sales tax reports from January 2000 through August 2006. This kind of data would help show long-terms trends for the area.

BD does not pretend to be an Excel wizard but after showing our numbers to people who are, there are three conclusions we all agree on

It sucks (financially) to own a bar.

It REALLY sucks to own a bar on Lower Greenville, and

You gotta wonder how these guys can stay in business so long without making any money

Forget the loud music, worry about dodging the bullets

If you thought you heard gunshots in your sleep around closing time last Sunday morning (August 20) from Lower Greenville, you were not dreaming.

Some gang punk decided he did not like some white dudes and unloaded his 9mm gun on them. Luckily his aim sucked.
