Default Moving out at 17 in Texas (without getting in trouble with the Cops)

Texas-- How's it going, I have a question. I'm 17 years old and i want to move-out (Go live with my grandma), and i was wondering if I leave without my parents consent what would happen? I've heard if they called the Cops, they'll just locate me and tell me too tell my parents where I'am and that I'm OK. is that true? Can i leave without getting in trouble with the Cops? I've also heard there's a loophole with the system in Texas. If i did leave, the Cops won't force me to go back home because I'm 17. Nevertheless is that True also?
Thank you,

You are right, they will not make you go back, just make you call home. They would haul you out if you were in a crack house, that kind of thing.

People who post after me will tell you that you must be 18. I not only LIVE in Texas but had dealings regarding my daughter at 17 and they don't get involved.

I would like to inform you that Texas law allows teenagers to move out at age 17 and the parents do not file a runaway report, the parents are responsible for and can be held liable for any legal troubles, medical problems or unpaid bills associated with the teenager until she has reached her 18th birthday.

Short answer, unless your parents permit it, no.
