Black Friday Crimes That Will Land You in Jail

Black Friday can bring out the worst in people. People fight over money, so it’s no surprise that they fight over items that are heavily discounted. However, some people take these sales very seriously. The hysteria associated with Black Friday results in an increase in crime.

If you are one of those people that got carried away and ended up in jail, get in touch with A-EZ Out Bail Bonds today. Our bondsmen work around the clock to grant speedy releases, no matter if it’s a holiday. 

Assault and Battery

You can’t get away with assault and battery no matter what time of the year it is. What makes you think you can get away with it now? If a person shoved you out of the way and took the last product on the shelf, your instinct might be to throw some hands. However, you could face some serious consequences. 

Assault is unlawfully attempting to inflict violent injury on someone when you had the ability to do so. If your attempt was successful, you could be charged for the battery too. If you are charged with an assault, you can face up to 6 months in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. A battery conviction can also land you up to 6 months in jail and up to $2,000 in fines. So, before you throw a punch for that bag, you might want to think it through again.


Although Black Friday is full of sales, shopping isn’t cheap. The holidays can take a giant toll on some families. Not everyone can afford to buy a bunch of gifts. So, when an opportunity presents itself, people take it. Black Friday is that opportunity for many. Stores are crowded and staff is busy– seems like the perfect time to steal. However, you would be surprised by how many staff is actually on the lookout for shoplifters on Black Friday. 

If you get caught stealing property that is less than $950, you will most likely face misdemeanor petty theft charges. This can include up to 6 months of jail and a $1,000 fine. If you stole property worth more than $950, you can be charged with felony grand theft and carry up to three years of jail and up to $10,000 in fines. 

Brandishing a Weapon

Texas gun laws are a lot laxer than they are in other states, but that doesn’t mean you can do whatever you want with them. If you and another customer are going after the same item and you brandish your gun or other weapons unlawfully while engaged in a fight with them, you can be arrested. Don’t use this as a scare tactic, it’s not going to work.
