He isnt perfect, nobody is. he's a great person and ya'll don't know him. so shut the hell up.

Like Gordon Lightfoot's song... "Circle Of Steel".
Such a waste of life and a pride in being a derelict.

Yes...it takes a big man to hit a woman. He's a big man now. He has probably kicked a few dogs too. Well, not to worry...theyll make him someone's girlfriend in prison.

little cockroach. From the photo is it safe to assume he has faced prior charges? I wonder how smug he will look if he faces hard time on arrest and conviction?

I'm surprised the BCSO doesn't issue a REWARD - DEAD or ALIVE bounty on this "Happy-Gilmore" jive terkey!

A real big, brave 5ft 6in pencil-necked woman shooter. I'll bet his mamma's real proud!

This Dude looks like a real winner. I would have no problem with a cop knocking that "proud look" off his face.

I would have to agree with all of the previous posts, the first thing that came to my mind when I saw this photo was "what a smug looking punk"...wonder how smug he will look when he bunks with a nice BIG man in prison??! That is IF our legal system will put him away and not just give him a slap on the wrist, like they so often do.
