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.
I was sober, but years ago I was driving across the desert southwest with my girlfriend. The low humidity caused my lips to crack and bleed. Desperate, I asked her for her lipstick. It was hot pink (but, as I said, I was desperate).
By the time we needed gas, I had forgotten about the lipstick. I pulled into the gas station, stopped at the pump, and turned to hand the gas cap key to the pump jockey (I told you it was a long time ago).
Just as I saw myself in the outside rearview mirror, the attendant also saw my face. He froze dead in his tracks. Nothing to do but smile and head for the potty (mens room).
This was the early 70's..I'd been dating a lovely lady for several months..we were going to a New Year's Eve party, and then spending the night at at the home of a friend of hers. Early on in the evening, and why, I have NO idea.. I STUPIDLY, STUPIDLY commented that I didn't like her shade of nail polish..the very dark colors were just then coming into fashion, and I didn't think much of them....much later on that night, after we'd long gone to bed, both somewhat inebriated from the party, when she awoke, she decided that it would be "funny" to paint my toenails with that same nail polish. She did, then went back to bed. Later, when I awoke to go to the bathroom, being in an unfamiliar space, and admittedly hung over, I stubbed my little toe on the door. It hurt like absolute bloody hell..and started swelling up like a balloon..I'd also badly torn the skin and it was bleeding profusely. After an hour or so of excruciating pain, I was convinced that I'd broken the bone and wanted to go to the ER. And then I realized that ALL my toenails were painted. We were in rural upstate NY..and that wasn't gonna fly..so I manned up..suffered..and it was fine after a few hours...BTW the toe is still slightly crooked..
“lol ya think the guy has an anger management problem
for his sentence Id make him dress in drag for 8 monthssee what he does with thatlol”
I heard about a lady at a zoo who was poking at the bears. She got her arm ripped off.
Sounds like my son’s college stories. Guy passed out and they sharpied a swastika on his forehead. He woke up hungry and thirsty, went to the store and didn’t notice it until he got back.
The life of a defense attorney can be quite entertaining- sometimes.
...and the lives of victims of the thugs kept on the streets by some defense attorneys can be hell (that’s if they’re still alive).
Bravo for being proud of getting a guy free from charges of threatening a woman and children. Bet you would’ve felt different if he threatened your wife and kids.
Lol .... We were cruel but fun none the less !...:o)
