There is no doubt in my mind that an ego-maniacal hothead like Heaton is also beating his wife! Not to mention the effect on the child(ren). That poor Comcast employee: Who would expect to be assaulted while installing cable???? This jerk (Heaton) couldn't even hold his temper for the year's stay he got from that "temper tantrum". I hope the judge doesn't cave when it comes to this incident. Heaton is destined to continue this behavior. Get off of your "lawyer high horse", Heaton, and realize that you're just another hothead nobody!

This guy is a super a**hole. I sat on a municipal commission and he was just a jackass, treated many of the people in front of the commission like s***. He's a complete waste of skin and air.

There is no such charge as felony obstructing legal process or Gross Misdemeanor disorderly conduct. Obstructing with force is a Gross Misdemeanor at best; otherwise it's 4th degree assault - a felony. Disorderly conduct can only be a misdemeanor at best. And, there is no law that you have to identify yourself to the police. 5th amendment still barely here in this country.

So you'd rather have looters running running wild around the town just because you don't want to have to identify yourself to the people that are trying to protect you and your property? Lord you're an idiot!

And I really don't think he was denied life, liberty, or property. He was asked to IDENTIFY himself, and state his reason for being in the area! For the safety of himself and others.

Haven't been around too many natural disaters have you? Do you know what looting is?

Plain and simple, this guy is a jerk, and needs to be held accountable for his actions!

Just to clear up the law part of this, below is the URL listing statute under which he was charged. A felony means you can serve more than a year; A gross misdemeanor means you can serve up to a year; A misdemeanor means you can serve up to 90 days. This website is of value to anyone reading news stories on persons charged with crimes.

Gee, I can think of several instances in which you have to identify yourself to the police.

This guy is a tool and he's lucky they didn't shoot his sorry butt when he drug the deputy with his car.

Are you a lawyer? If so, maybe you should 'defend' this dummy! I wonder how you would feel if your house was damaged and your belongings were scattered all over; then only to have some idiot come in, rummage thru your stuff and split with everything they could carry? The law enforcement in this country are AWSOME!! Even if you are an idiot, they have an obligation to helpyou and put their life on the line. I'm not saying every law enforcement person is perfect; no one is. But seeings how you are bent on defending this guy, perhaps you & he should leave this country and go elsewhere.

I hate it when the subject of the story (or his buddies) tries to defend themselves.
