EDMONTON - Why so serious, Owen Dallas Gerun?
The 30-year-old man flew into an inexplicable rage when two women he and a friend had been socializing with applied make-up to his face after he had passed out at a party at an Edmonton townhouse.
As the two men were leaving the home the following morning, the gussied up Gerun realized what had been done to him and became extremely angry, said Crown prosecutor Laura Marr.
Gerun smashed two windows with a shovel and a propane tank, respectively, and then reached through the shattered window and blasted bear spray throughout the kitchen.
Marr said the amount of bear spray was so overwhelming that the fire department had to be called to clear out the noxious fumes.
The two women hid in a closet and called 911, said Marr.
The rightful occupants of the home were terrorized...over a prank.
Gerun was nabbed at a nearby 7-Eleven and he still had the makeup on and smelled like bear spray.
After being taken into police custody, he threatened to knock an officers head off. After being told to calm down, Gerun - who has a significant record for violence - said: Im going to find you.
Geruns defence lawyer said the women admitted they had painted his face up pretty good and could see why he would be upset, but they didnt expect such a violent reaction.
Gerun was sentenced to eight months behind bars after pleading guilty to mischief causing damage, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public peace and uttering death threats.
That wasn’t very ladylike. Geez! LOL
That was common with the people I partied with in my younger days. The first man to pass out got the full treatment, including the shaving of one eyebrow.
Women were exempt.
What a hoser eh....
There’s probably a lesson there about spending the night drunk with a total stranger. The women didn’t know they had a violent psycho with them, and the crazy man didn’t know the girls would disrespect him. Too bad there wasn’t a way for all of them to avoid that situation.
Uttering those death threats to a cop can get a person charged with felony retaliation in TX.
I recently represented a guy who threatened to “beat your ((the cop’s) ass, and I’m going to do it right outside the police station after I get out on bail and you get off your shift. Then I’m going to do to your wife and kids what you did to me.”
I could have beat the charge on the first part.
I mean- threatening to beat a person’s donkey can’t be illegal!
The wife and kids? Much tougher to explain.
With a felony history in place I still got him probation.
The sad thing (for him) was that he was arrested illegally on a bad disorderly conduct charge. But he was way too drunk to keep his mouth shut.
And no I couldn’t suppress a statement that constituted a new offense while in police custody. I researched it.
The life of a defense attorney can be quite entertaining- sometimes.
People should realize they are dealing with an idiot when anyone drinks so much they pass out.
Leave the fool alone and makes sure you don’t have him over again.
Well, that didn't work, so we tried something different...
lol ya think the guy has an anger management problem
—for his sentence I’d make him dress in drag for 8 months—see what he does with that—lol
“Ya snooze, ya lose.”
“Gerun was nabbed at a nearby 7-Eleven and he still had the makeup on and smelled like bear spray. “
I’d like to hear the BOLO (Be On the Look Out) for that one.
I need some of this bear spray for the office.
Oooohhhh...so much to say to a defense lawyer.But I'll just ask this...I assume that a defense lawyer,after having seen the evidence that the state intends to put forth,and after having talked,at length,with his client usually says to himself "this guy is absolutely (or probably) guilty".Am I correct on that and,if so,how does a lawyer look at himself in the mirror while representing a guy that he's convinced did,in fact,commit the murder (or other serious crime) he's been charged with?
I've never been able to understand a Johnny Cochrane (just one example),who *had* to know that OJ was 100% *guilty*,not 100% *not* guilty,as he said at his initial court appearance.OTOH,I can easily understand a Perry Mason who,at the very least,*suspected* that his clients were innocent,,,and,to his credit,was always proven correct.
LOL !..... Better than waking up with last seasons elk antlers duct taped to yer head and dumped at the game wardens office......naked.
Never drink too much ! Besides some good bourbons and single malt scotch really tastes good if ya slow down to sipping speed !
Stay safe !
Sounds like he may have been a little berserk before this. Thanks rickmichaels.
Reminds me of the time in high school some fellow party-ers decided it would be funny if they covered my glasses in black magic marker to make me think I went blind. And it was funny!
For makeup I save money by passing out and letting someone else apply it.
