Heard that his Mother picked him up after the fight, then she knows he has the gun in "her" truck (with his daughter, which is a minor). And shots up a car, then shots at a other people with kids. At the arresting stop his mother has the gun under her set (in her truck). Really!! Why wasn't she changed for the gun, that was out of plain sight? Sounds like someone isn't doing their job at VPSO.

You people dont know what your talking about. I so know what happened because he shot at me. He was just drinking he is a kind hearted man and if i could pay his bond, if he agreed to stop drinking and get help, i would pay it! He was just taking pills and alcohol together he is usually never like this. If you dont know all the story then stop talking like you do. Im cheyenne, by the way. and i dont think any of you have the right to judge if you dont know all that happened.

This is not a rumor. this is James wife. James said his daughter wasnt in the vehicle but who knows. James was drunk that night and I heard he took a pill. I didnt know he took a pill. But I do know that James shot at a vehicle my kids and i were in along with my exhusband and his girl friend. Before you judge I will tell you why I was riding with them. I told James we needed rto go home, it was getting late and we had the kids. We were at his brothers for a crawfish boil all that day until the early morning. He had a snotty attitude so I asked him what his problem was. He snapped! He ran toward me and pushed me to the ground. He pushed me down twice, during the altercation, he pushed one of my daughters down, hit my other daughter and son in the face. He went toward my daughter again so I grabbed his throat, I said if you touch my daughter again, I will kill you. I had him by the throat the same time he had me by the throat. when his brother pulled him back, James grabbed my hair. My kids and I tried to leave in the truck but James punctured the tire. So we left walking. He came by on his dirtbike so we ran into some peoples yards to get help in fear that he would hurt us again. He went on down the road on his bike but right after, his cousin and girlfriend picked us up. I tried to get ahold of my family to come get us but no one answered. my daughter was on her phone at the same time trying to get ahold of someone. she got ahold of her father and his girlfriend. That is why my kids and I were in their vehicle. It is my understanding that james told people that he fired the gun shots because I was with my ex. He failed to mention that my exes GIRLFRIEND was with him. Okay so here"s the rest of the story, when we got in my exes and his girl friends truck, they took us to our house in Anacoco so I could get my kids medicine and some clothes. We were too afraid to stay their. Also, I couldnt find the key to open the front door so I broke the glass to get in. We got everything we needed from inside. My exes girl friend told my ex to get my car so I would have it. it wouldnt start so my ex and his girl friend were trying to jump it off.(&yes) I had that car before we were married. While they were trying to get it to crank, James' mom drove up with James in the passenger seat. He jumped out with a gun. He waved it around and pointed it at his self. He said for us to leave, it was his place to die because he messed up big and he was losing his family. then he turned the gun back on us. we jumped in the truck, backed up and he fired two shots. we then pulled out to leave, he stepped out and fired two more shots. When we got on the main hwy going toward Leesville, we looked back and they were following us a little ways, then backed off. I take it after we pulled out is when he shot my parked car, three times. There"s three bullet hold in on the drivers side fender, one bullet hit the tire too. Later, while the police were looking for James, he texted me that he wasnt trying to kill us, he was trying 2 kill the man I was with. thats the way he put it. that was dumb bc i wasnt with him like that. & my exes girl friend was there too, she was helping us out. James has a history of violence, he says he blacks out, not knowing what he"s doing and the day after he only remembers bits & peices. James can be a sweet loving person but at certain times, ANYTHING can set him off. I miss the person i thought he was. My mind & my heart is battling right now. I cant follow my heart. We have 2 use common sense and stay away from him because he put his hands on my kids & I and shot at us. He could of killed ANYONE in that vehicle. Even my kids says he was cool and they miss the person they thought he was. the kids and I cudnt help but feel sad for him when we saw the mugshot but common sense over feelings will save our lives. We dont hate him and we forgive him bc its the right thing to do but we will never forget or trust him again.ourheartsRbroken

She was just setting the record straight. I think that is good. Now if you don't want to read anything she said you can push the little button on your computer and I can guarantee it will turnoff.

Hey, you posted it on Topix for the whole world to see. I don't think that qualifies as "prying into business that isn't yours." When you post it on the internet, it's EVERYBODY's business! And I don't find anything anywhere that accused you of being trash.

As i know the situation because i was present i will say this....
James took it upon himself to act out of control. No one was making him do anything but him.
Once the call was made to us from the daughter, we went and picked them up from a bad situation. While we were tryimg to crank the car, james was driven up by his mother. He jumped out waving a gun and yelling for us to get off his property because that was his place to die. While we were trying to leave, james shot at us twice. When we were pulling away he shot twice more. He then jumped back into his mothers truck and they proceeded to tail us. Immedeately 911 was called and we were directed to fo straight to VPSO and file reports. We did so, and made sure that the children and their mother were at a sade place to stay since they were too scared to come atay at our home due to james yelling out that he knew where we lived.
This all happened between midnightish and approx 5 a.m. sunday morning. Approx 5 p.m. sunday evening james was in custody of VPSO and facing numerous charges.
Now for any and all that want to soread rumors and gossip without facts all this is a matter of PUBLIC record so look it up and stop the dang drama!

Both of you need to be arrested and charged with Domestic Violence in Sabine Parish. CPS needs to be called and your children need to be taken from you. You, putting your children in harms way is disgraceful.

Look, I didnt know it was going to happen. The only reason I caught him by the throat is because he was trying to hit my daughter. What would YOU have done if it was your kid someone was trying to attack?! As for the Jerry Springer comment, it did imply that. Its a trashy show. The part where the shots were being fired was Sarver's trailor park. There always has to be someone trash talking. This was the first time James ever laid his hands on me or the kids in a hurtful way, we got away from him asap! So dont judge me! I did the right thing.

The only thing that will heal trauma that those poor ppl are undoubtedly going through is to tell their story! Tell everyone you want to tell, you may help someone else get out of a bad situation before it gets to that. Only God can judge you & only God can heal you. As far as this mans mother allowing her son to shoot at children , if anyone would have been hit , their blood would be on her hands! Even if she wasn't driving she could have called the cops an got rid of the gun. Pray for the ppl involved in this guys next episode!

The trailer park part was not meant to be hurtful. Was just curious where it occured. Residing in a trailer park makes you no less of a person.

Omg..... I agree with prayforthem..... I would be telling everyone I could so that your side is told. I have had many experiences in my lifetime and I have learned the only way to heal from such a traumatic experience is to talk about it! I am so sorry for you and your children and the others that had came to help. Sometimes really bad situations happen and it escalates to danger in no time. You did the best you could to keep your children safe in this situation and you need not feel responsible for others actions. You can not control someone who is in such a state. Please consider family Council. Even if it is just one session ..... It may help you and your children move forward from here. I do have to say though.... I am very shocked that this man's mother would drive him anywhere with a gun! The man is def. crying out for help and I would think the mother would be wise enough to see and know better. Good luck for you and I hope you and your family recover from this horrible event.

Let me start by saying thanks to Amber,Paul and Jennifer for posting the information concerning their children,themselves and James. We all have mothers,sisters and children or know of someone who has. They are all safer because of their actions and so is everyone else now. As long as he is in jail, all in concern, are and will stay safe. James is by far a troubled man, regardless of the causes or excuses he uses to manipulate those around him. His record is a matter of public fact, not rumor's or lies or hear say. He has a history of domestic violence,drug related offences and DWI's, for many years now. Check the news paper archives,VPSO clerk of courts and attached web sites for previous charges and fine/probation's, going back several years. Let's all hope the DA's Office does their job correctly this time and he remains in jail for a long time.
