Poor Archie and Arthur, the erstwhile Cowboys and Eagles fans that were blamed for the presence of the police at Councilman Dwaine Caraway’s house last week.
As it turns out, Archie and Arthur were not the reason Caraway called Dallas Police Chief David Brown to send officers to his house, after all. It turns out that the police report was correct all along – it was a spat between Caraway and his wife, State Rep. Barbara Mallory Caraway.
In a statement today, Caraway admits the two had a fight, and says he overreacted. He then pleaded for privacy from the council and the public so the two can get to their 50th wedding anniversary (they’re currently in year 16).
Maybe it’s just me, but after you put a call in to the police chief himself to break up your marital spat, and then contradict a police report with a story about your friends Archie and Arthur, isn’t it a little hard to put that particular cat back in its bag?
