What's the residential trespass law in texas (harris county)?
What can I legally do to trespassers.
How can I file a police report if the person runs away, but has vandalized my property?
Do I have the right to restrain them (including minors) until the police come?
If they are vandalising my property can they be physically and forcefully removed (including minors).
If a physical altercation occurs, are we in the right?

You can file a police report even if the person runs away. Hopefully he/she will be caught and order to pay some restitution to you.
You can legally detain an individual and contact the PD afterwards. It's a citizens arrest.
Physical altercation can and may occur. In the event it does, don't use excessive force against the individual. Do what's necessary to contain him/her.

File a report: it starts a paper trail that you can use in court if the problem continues.

I heard in Texas if somebody steps on your property you can shoot them.
Don't know if it's true I'm not a lawyer.Source(s): Hearsay
