this guy has been in and out of jail for beating his girlfriends and when they want to leave he thinks he has the right to hold them against thier will. this time will hopefully be his last. Rot in your jail cell for the next 70 months loser.

I was one of those girlfriends... He held me against my will, threw me into his house, threw me against furniture... WHILE HIS DAUGHTER WAS IN THE ROOM and then he blamed it on me being drunk... ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! I hope he rots in hell... He's a worthless human being and should be sentenced for life. I want to know who he kidnapped and what the detials are of this arrest... because up until today, I was scared for my life that I would run into him again and scared what he would do to me... This is the only peace I have had in months... Now that I know he is behind bars... I know he can't hurt me or my family. I feel bad for his daughter.

I was one of his former girl friends too, I have known him for years and he is truly disturbed, most of his family has restraining orders on him. It took me about 3 months to safely get away from him. When I told him I was done he threatened my life and the life of any other man I even thought of dating. I pity anyone who gets involved in him. They need to finally lock him up for good. He has almost killed two people now and his rage and temper is one of the scariest thinks I have ever seen. He is a master at manipulation and prays on single mothers. He is wonderful with children and then will use them as a tool to keep you. He has held a knife to a child's throat to keep the mother around and then beat the same mother in front of the child.
I know I am one of the very few to get away without being physically harmed.

I believe the kidnapping was his own daughter. He tricked the mother over to the house then took his daughter into the backroom to his mother. His mother and he had this planned and because there was a no contact order he and his daughters mother had Patrick's mother called the police on her. Because she was in the home she (the daughters mother) was arrested and Patrick and her mother held the daughter captive for over 5 weeks I believe?!? This is just what I was told, no idea if that was the actual kidnapping count but I know that was done in the past year.

I was told by his mother that he kidnapped a girlfriend of his for over 5 hours at knife point, took her home, came back chopped her hair off with that knife and threatened to kill her. The girlfriends neighbor chased him off with a bat and called the cops. However patricks mother is just as afraid of him as everyone else and would do whatever he tells her to do. I have known him since I was 5 and have seen this happen time and time again. I vote the electric chair!

In regards to what happened I can say that Derek is correct about the story, seeing as I am the one that it happened to, it makes me sick to my stomach to read about all this, and hear the other stories, I know exactly what you ladies I went through. In regards to him serving that 65 months is just the beginning so you will all not have to worry of the about him being out soon
