Artie Woods, the man behind the Crime Dog McGruff, was presented the prestigious Liberty Bell Award Tuesday for "taking a bite out of crime" in Wichita Falls, Texas.
Tuesday is Law Day in Texas.
The award presentation followed a speech by Kent Hance, chancellor of Texas Tech University, who addressed the meeting of Wichita Falls lawyers. Hance, a former United States Congressman, is the only man to defeat George W.Bush in an election when Bush ran against Hance for United States Congress.
Lonny Morrison introduced his former classmate at Texas University, Kent Hance.
Hance told several amusing stories about his legal career before discussing Texas Tech University. Hance and Morrison joked about being in the same classes.
