45 People Are Facing Felony Charges After Arrests In Smith County, Texas
This past weekend was a mixed bag when it came to outdoor activities because of the rain Saturday, but Sunday turned out to be a pretty good day. That didn't really matter because it was divisional playoff weekend in the NFL. We now know which four teams are playing in the championship games next week and ultimately two of them will go on to play in Super Bowl LVII.
Unfortunately one of those teams will not be the Dallas Cowboys after suffering a painful loss to the San Franciso 49ers. After their loss last night, it didn't take long for frustrated Dallas Cowboys fans to come to blows with each other while at a divisional playoff-watching game at AT&T Stadium. Those caught up in the Malay could have ended up in jail and some charges were pressed against them for their involvement.
