I too know this IDIOT. I was one of his past girlfriends. For years I lived in fear of this fool. He is violent, has no regard to his actions including that of his CHILD to hold both of us at GUN POINT for hours and then the JUDICIAL SYSTEM plea bargins to Custodial Interference and 1 count assault?
I hope that the powers that be will see that this man is never allowed to roam freely on the face of this earth EVER AGAIN.
He is a coward and a fool, one that will never get to know his daughter. EVER!

If most in this county would quit taking meth and pain pills long enough to do research and ask probative questions, they would logically come to the indisputable fact and conclusion that the ROCO Mafia / Cocaine Cartel via the Rockwood Airport controls ALL of the NARCO Trafficking in East Tennessee, involving MANY different agencies, many different officials, and Tennessee State Senators.

The biggest joke they play on ROCO is the fact that you all are crazy, and that they don't exist.

BUT WE KNOW CONCLUSIVELY they exist......and watch EVERYTHING.

Whatever happened to this story? Was it just dropped like so many other things in ROCO? Or did someone return a favor by having this cat rub somebody else out?

I went to school with this POS, he used to still things from lockers and buy drugs. Glad I've not run into him in many years.
