The state of Texas has a warning for students trying to buy alcohol while on Spring Break this week. Officials with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission are planning to conduct a minimum of 600 undercover stings.
Law enforcement officials have captured one of Texas’ Most Wanted — a man wanted for his involvement in the South Padre Island beating of North Texas college student Derek “D.J.” Madrigal.
Derek Madrigal received a hero’s welcome when he walked into Brookhaven College Tuesday morning. The visit was bittersweet since he had to withdraw for the semester, to focus on recovering from a vicious beating that happened in South Padre.
It was relentless and brutal, and it was all captured on cell-phone video. Derek Madrigal of Dallas is recovering in a hospital after he was stabbed nine times and beaten with coolers.
