Grimes County Sheriff Won’t Ban Hugs

There will be never be a “No Hug” policy in the Grimes County sheriff’s office.

The declaration made by sheriff Don Sowell on his Facebook page Monday afternoon has been shared nearly 400 times as of Wednesday morning.

The post is in response to a ban initiated by another Texas sheriff.

Sowell wrote: “Here in Grimes County chivalry is not dead, and we tip our hats to the ladies, we open doors for them, and we hug unless the recipient prefers a hand shake, which is sometimes the case.”

The sheriff also wrote “As a gentleman raised by my Mother, she would be awfully disappointed to hear that I implemented a “No Hug” policy as I, and most people I know, come from an atmosphere that hugs are legal as well as laughter.”
