Posted on 08/02/2007 10:03:39 AM PDT by Serious Capitalist
BENTONVILLE -- The father of a 17-year-old girl found his daughter's boyfriend hiding inside her bedroom closet Tuesday, beat him bloody with a pool stick, then left the room to fetch a gun. The daughter and boyfriend blocked the door with a dresser, so the father shot through the closed door, hitting the boyfriend in the back and paralyzing him, police said.
George David Reed, 48, posted a $150,000 bond and was freed from jail Wednesday afternoon as Michael Austin Guzman, 19, underwent surgery to treat a bullet lodged in his spinal cord.
Three of Guzman's vertebrae are fractured and doctors don't expect him to regain feeling or mobility below his waist, according to a probable cause affidavit released Wednesday after Reed's bond hearing. He was still in surgery Wednesday evening in Joplin's Freeman Health System, according to an intensive care nurse.
Benton County Circuit Judge Xollie Duncan set the bond Wednesday based on a request from Chief Deputy Prosecutor Shane Wilkinson. Reed was arrested on suspicion of a felony terroristic act, the most serious type of felony aside from capital murder, punishable by up to life in prison. He was also arrested on a charge of felony first-degree battery.
Defense attorney W.H. Taylor, who spent the morning consulting with his client at the jail, did not object to the bond. Reed is to be arraigned Sept. 10 before Circuit Judge David Clinger.
Taylor said that Reed has three children and lives with his wife, Sharon, at 13569 Vaughn Road near Highfill. Reed has been in Northwest Arkansas since 1962, owns a farm and rental properties, and has operated a moving and storage business since 1983.

Cripes - I think the beating him bloody with the pool stick would have been enough.
I thought the custom was to use a shotgun but not to fire it.
I would have stopped after the pool cue.
He must not be a Muslim.
You don’t hit women.
Those are the types that need gun control.
I guess he couldn’t find his shotgun, so he used a rifle instead. What was the title of that country western song with the line about not sneaking around my back door?
Well, now we'll see how True "true love" really is..........
Why is the daughter the poor innocent victim here ?
Gee, whenever a boy wanted to meet our daughter, he came to the front door and presented himself and his credentials.
I can tell you what would have happened if my husband found someone in her closet in the middle of the night. But the man she married is a lot like her dad.

It’s ole fashioned justice. If we had more of that, with the pool stick, maybe our kids would understand that this is not acceptable. The gun? Don’t know if I would go that far but it wasn’t my daughter. Not only that, maybe the father had many run in’s with this boy and just had it.
Gonna happen to my daughters’ boyfriends if I find ‘em in her closet, too.
Except I’ll hide the bodies in Lake Lanier.
Gonna be hard to deny premeditation there. Should of stopped with the stick whoopin'
I’m surprised he didn’t run over him with the car afterwards.
Rules to Dating a My Daughter
If you pull into my driveway and honk, you’d better be delivering a package, because you’re sure not picking anything up.
You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter’s body, I will remove them.
I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips. Please don’t take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open-minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, in order to ensure that your clothes do not come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist.
I’m sure you’ve been told that in today’s world sex without utilizing a “barrier method” of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate. When it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.
It is usually understood that in order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is “early.”
I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry.
As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don’t you do something useful, like changing the oil in my car?
The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness. Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka - zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies that feature chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better.
Do not lie to me. On issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless god of your universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me.
Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice paddy near Hanoi. When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return to your car - there is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face at the window is mine.
Sound reasonable to me. This is exactly waht I told all my daughter's bo's I'd do. A man's just gotta follow thru on his word. Poor kid, probably didn't believe the father when he told him what he'd do if....
Maybe the 19 y/o man should have listen to the father of the 17 old kid. Too bad for Guzman, perhaps he learned his lesson.
"I'm still missing you...but my aim's getting better"?
This is just plain sad. Completely uncalled for.
Actions have serious and long lasting consequences as an adult (girl’s father) should have known. Worse, the fact that the father then went and got the gun and came back puts him into a premeditated mode. Very bad decision.
Finally, what is God’s name was he shooting through the door into the room where his daughter was also? This is beyond stupid. What if it had been his daughter he paralyzed, or killed? Or was he going after both of them?
That is freakin’ great! LOL!
OK , so it’s all the guy’s fault. The daughter sneaks in a guy, does the stuff and has him hide in her closet, and the guy is getting beaten black and blue for it? This is the feminist mindset , girls innocent and pure like the wind driven snow and boys the vicious predatory wolves.
I have a real problem with this.
There are plenty of laws the guy broke, why would a terrorism statute apply?
I consider this to be abuse of the anti-terror laws, the very thing the moonbats have been shrieking about.
If you read the full article, this was a premeditated act by the father. He set up his daughter and her boyfriend to catch them in the act. He beat the boyfriend, refused to allow him to leave the house, then went into another room to get a gun and shot blindly into the closet.
The father should get the maximum punishment.
Obviously you have never been a father of a young girl.
Any charges being brought on the boyfriend? He’s 19, she’s 17. They “fell asleep” on the bed. She was adjusting her clothes when the father came in the room. That’s almost enough cause for the father to plead insanity. Shoot, not saying the father was right, but I’d be ticked too.
Or started with the gun
I'd expect him to have much, much better aim and be able to get off a head shot.
I understand that the politically correct thing to do is say, "gosh, shooting a boy you find in your daughter's closet is overreaction." But....
Look, if you are hiding in the closet, you KNOW what you are doing is wrong. What do you expect is going to happen? I've been to this town in AR, trust me when I say it is not a "let's just hug out this problem" kind of place. Great people, good food, but not exactly a hippie, trippy, touchy-feelie kind of vibe.
The guy won’t end up being his son-in-law, but he will be Dad’s financial dependent for the rest of his life.
When you’re being a dumbass and shooting through a closed door, its kind of hard to have good aim.
No the girl is not innocent. BUT any boy should know that if sneaks into a girls home a beating is the best he can hope for if gets caught by her Daddy. Maybe that would cause him to cool his jets a little.
What pray tell is a felony terroristic act and why would you charge a father in a mad fit of rage with it?
That is one problem I have with Congress and State Legislatures coming up with new crimes when they are trying to look tough on crime or look proactive, the Prosecutors trying to look tough on crime just have to find somebody to charge with these new crimes.
These Prosecutors are just like a kid with a new toy.
Dou you mean Gordon Lightfoot's "Sundown"
Sundown ya better take care / If I find you been creepin round my back stairs
Plus, "Lucy" has some 'splaining to do.
Well, at least the prisoner is not running away with those leg irons .... cause I don’t think the guards could catch him if he did.
NOT reasonable. You do NOT shoot a 17 year old kid for this type of thing, PERIOD. We don’t even know if there was any hanky panky going on. Maybe he was hiding because Dad is a nutjob. (Gee, what would make one suspect that?)
All joking aside (and some of it is pretty funny), lifetime paralysis is NOT a justifiable consequence. I don’t think those of you who are tacitly approving this nutjob’s actions know someone facing a lifetime of paralysis. It sucks, something I would not wish on anyone (with a couple jihadist exceptions).
Now he'll be spending the next 20 years in a cage...That will do his family wonders.
The prison time would just about be worth it.
Of course if his lawyer does the voire dire well, he'll be acquitted.
Two things come to mind.
1) “Doctors don’t expect him to regain feeling or mobility below his waist.” So I hope it was fun while it lasted.
2) There are laws which precede and supercede those passed by a legislature.
I thought of that too
We only have boys at my house, but I’ll show this to them.
The kind of girl they should be looking for should have a dad like you.
Thought of that, too. Using "terrorism" in this context desensitizes us (and the law) to actual terrorism. Attempted murder, felonious assault, etc. -- all options. Probably went for the terrorism charge, though, because it carries the harshest penalty.
Watch out for the hype. If he beat the kid bloody, how was the kid able to block the door with a dresser while the old man went to get his gun?
If someone is beat bloody with a cue stick he would not be bouncing right back up.
