GAINESVILLE, TX -- A Gainesville man was arrested for littering, when he threw a cigarette butt on the ground on Saturday.

Police say 20-year-old Michael McAfee was reportedly trying to enter a building in the 1100 block of Dodson Street in Gainesville. He then fled when another citizen saw him. That citizen chased him down and called police, but he wasn't in trouble yet -- until police say he threw a cigarette butt on the ground right in front of officers.

After that, the officers arrested him for littering.

    Years ago, someone in a small town in north Texas got a ticket for littering because he was throwing up on the town square. Of course, they could have gotten him for a PI or a DWI, but they got him for littering.

    Okay, we now need to ban all butts. It was the butts fault, not the guy who dropped it.

    Hey Billy, I just wonder which branch of Andy and Barney are you from, also since you are o knowed up on laws and what it takes to break them, why is it in texas a man can be put in jail for littering, but in Oklahoma a Highway patrol Officer murders a teenager (while in the pursuit of duty of course) and not to mention after watching to many reruns of CHIP'S there is not a story, not a comment ..... nothing!! As a matter of fact i tried to comment on that story and it was not allowed. I say let's stop the jackbooted takeover of our rights, stop the OHP and all other law enforcement arms from getting out of control. Come on now .... stand up for your rights .... and what about the officer who killed the Ada teenager, if it was the teenager that rammed the OHP off of the road we would be hearing the sad story of the Officers family ...blah ... blah ... blah, hey KXII where is the story
