DENY; and Opinion Filed November 14, 2016. S In The Court of Appeals Fifth District of Texas at Dallas No. 05-16-01300-CV EX PARTE SCOTT DAMON RICHARDSON, Relator Original Proceeding from the County Court at Law Rockwall County, Texas Trial Court Cause No. CR16-0617 MEMORANDUM OPINION Before Justices Lang, Brown, and Stoddart Opinion by Justice Brown Before the Court is relator’s November 3, 2016 petition for writ of habeas corpus in which he seeks a writ of habeas corpus from what appears to be a brief confinement following his April 13, 2016 arrest for driving with an invalid license. The petition and appendix do not include proof that relator is actually confined or restrained. TEX. R. APP. P. 52.3(k)(1)(D), 52.7(a). In light of the absence of such proof of confinement required by Rule 52, the petition should, therefore, be denied. See, e.g., In re Miller, 05-14-01023-CV, 2014 WL 3882317, at *1 (Tex. App.—Dallas Aug. 7, 2014, orig. proceeding) (mem. op.) (denying petition and holding that website print out from Collin County Sheriff’s Department insufficient to provide proof of confinement). Accordingly, we deny relator’s petition for writ of habeas corpus. 161300F.P05 /Ada Brown/ ADA BROWN JUSTICE
