On May 20, 2018, an intoxicated driver crashed into Officer Chayne Brothers’ patrol SUV. The driver had spent the evening drinking at Bombshells Bar. The police officer was injured in the car crash. Officer Brothers suffered multiple injuries and was transported to Memorial Hermann where he underwent emergency surgery for one of his broken arms.
He turned to us to help hold the drunk driver and Bombshells responsible for their negligent behavior. On Friday, June 8, we filed a petition for a Temporary Restraining Order against Bombshells and the drunk driver. The Temporary Restraining Order would prevent Bombshells and the drunk driver from discarding, altering, selling, or destroying any evidence. It also requires Bombshells and the drunk driver to inspect the premises as well as the digital and physical records in question.
This petition for a Temporary Restraining Order comes days after Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg successfully obtained a Temporary Restraining Order against Bombshells. She cited multiple DWI arrests tied to Bombshells, including the incident involving our client, as one of the reasons her office is “going after a business that clearly elevated profit over people’s safety.”
Bombshells has been linked to over 90 alcohol-related crimes, according to investigators. At the June 6 press conference, the district attorney stated, “Given the number of crimes committed by intoxicated Bombshells patrons, this place is a crime factory. In addition to holding individual drunks accountable for their carnage, we want to stop the mayhem at its source.” Bombshells is currently prevented from selling alcohol.
