Criminal justice advocates have been pushing for years to pass a bill that would have limited the misdemeanor offenses for which someone can be arrested — including traffic infractions that are only punishable by fines  Currenlty, Texas police officerws can legally arrest people for misdemeanors that are punishable with only a fine, like most traffic violations. House Bill 2754 would limit that practice, so officers could only arrest people for specific fine-only misdemeanors including public intoxication, assault or voyeurism.
