TEXARKANA, TEXAS- Texarkana Texas Firefighters and Texarkana Texas Police Officers went head-to-head in a rib eating competition at Texas Roadhouse on Monday, June 30, 2014. In front of an encouraging crowd, first-responders split into teams of five competed in an eating relay. The police department won the competition, which was held to raise money for the Jason Sprague Memorial Scholarship at Texarkana College. Ten percent of all sales throughout the evening will be donated by Texas Roadhouse to the scholarship fund, which will be awarded to a student seeking a criminal justice degree at TC in the fall.
