Lamadrid told police that his family had just sat down to have Thanksgiving dinner when two of his sons got into an argument about athletes taking a knee during the national anthem, warrants show... The victim then began throwing patio furniture in the backyard. Lamadrid was still holding the shotgun as the furniture was being thrown around, warrants show. According to Lamadrid, his son then threw a water bottle at him and hit him in the face, which caused him to squeeze the trigger and fire off a shot. The victim was hit in the hand and leg. Lamadrid told police he went to check on his son and then went inside to get dressed and wait for police to arrive. The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries.

Good idea to get dressed before being arrested.
Thanksgiving day beer muscles!
This is either horrid or he had it coming.
Heavy Drinking and Thanksgiving, good times./s
Wow, fun family. They keep getting together.
I wonder if there are any hard feelings over this?
Don’t bring patio furniture to a shotgun fight.
I guess they have dinner before getting dressed? maybe they don’t bother all day—after all, it is vacation time...no need to get outta PJs
Whiskey, turkey and politics are quite a volatile mix in some cultural settings.
Ma, get my fixing to go to jail outfit ready .
Watching a bunch of grown men on their knees is “gay”. Something you really shouldn’t be watching on Thanksgiving.
This sounds like a cultural thing. We need to try to understand it.
The mugshot shows the father wearing a white T-shirt. Must’ve changed out of his wife beater before the police arrived.
Hah ha sucker !
I've witnessed a stabbing in the parking lot of the stadium, I've had all kinds of things thrown at my Sousaphone. It's ridiculous. It's a frickin GAME. Damn, y'all.
When I was at Domino's, I never needed to hear the outcome of the game. If the Broncos won, we'd be really busy the rest of the night. If they lost, we'd be totally dead.
Right? Note that he WASN’T going to “get dressed” just for the family Thanksgiving dinner.
Well, with that name it’s pretty obvious they have deep roots in NC. Ancestors probably some of the first settlers there huh?
Just do it!
Exactly, it was time to eat. Probably wearing a wife beater and some sweatpants or something close to it.
