DELAND -- A man who got his pants pulled down as he climbed a ladder didn't think the joke was funny and retaliated by pulling a gun and knife on his prankster roommate, according to a sheriff's report.
But after the roommate got out of the hospital where he was treated for a knife cut to his hand, he avenged his "roughing up" by vandalizing the inside of the home with food condiments and gasoline, authorities said Friday.
Kester Andy Narine sits in jail on $15,500 bail charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated battery, obstructing an officer without violence and false imprisonment.
The roommate, David Dibella, 47, disappeared after making a mess of the home, officials say. Now Volusia County sheriff's deputies are looking for him. He'll be charged with criminal mischief, sheriff's reportsstate.
The fallout between the roommates started Thursday at 8:46 p.m. in the backyard of an East Wisconsin Avenue home.
Narine, 37, and Dibella were cutting trees in their backyard and drinking beer, according to deputies. As Narine made his way up the ladder, Dibella pulled down Narine's pants.
Narine was not amused.
Still upset after the tree cutting, Narine yelled at Dibella, then went into a tantrum, deputies said. He grabbed a knife and a shotgun and came at him.
Inside the house, Narine ordered Dibella to the floor and put a .12-gauge shotgun to the back of his head, neck and back, and threatened to shoot him, the reportstates.
Dibella grabbed the knife while on the floor but Narine wrested it from his clenched hands, cutting Dibella's thumb and palm, deputies said.
When deputies arrived at the house, Narine refused to come out. After about an hour, though, he gave up, kneeling and putting his hands on his head, the report said.
Deputies found several red marks on Dibella's back where the shotgun was pushed into his skin, the report states. One shell was chambered in the shotgun.
At 2:02 a.m. Friday, Dibella came home from the hospital and, upset about his treatment after the pantsing incident, showed a temper of his own. Deputies said he vandalized the home, which property records show is owned by Narine's relatives.
According to a sheriff's report, Dibella discharged a fire extinguisher throughout the house, then collected containers of barbecue sauce, fruit juice, cooking oil and mustard. He emptied the contents throughout the house on the walls, floor, living room hallways and bedrooms.
And before he left, Dibella completed his revenge by emptying almost a gallon of gasoline on Narine's bed, the report states.
The whole thing sounds pretty reasonable
“retaliated by pulling a gun and knife”
...because you never know which kind of fight you’ll be bringing a [fill in the blank] to *ping*
Cutting trees and drinking beer...destined for greatness regardless of the path taken.
In before the mugshot post!
Around here, pulling a gun or a knife is often a once in a life-time event.
I guess a “beer summit” is out of the question..
Sounds like they already had one and it didn’t work out so well.
Anybody wanna bet this is a “lovers quarrel”?
hehe Just shows what a waste of time these summits’ are..
Beats the hell out of my former roommates who would steal my food, regardless of the sign in the fridge not to touch it.
“The whole thing sounds pretty reasonable...”
I could understand it if the guy had been wearing women’s underwear...(as if that hasn’t really happened before)
Alcohol, chain saws and ladders. An excellent recipe for trouble.
Heck, any two of the three will do.
Dibella has probably been a smack-off since grade school, playing unfunny jokes on people and being an all-round a$$hole. Obviously he STILL hadn’t been broken of the habit.
PANTS ON THE GROUND, PANTS ON THE GROUND, LOOKING LIKE A FOOL WITH YOUR PANTS ON THE GROUND...PING!!!
some people cannot take a joke.
Sounds like a typical day at the redneck ranch...
That was the theme of my high school prom.
