TEMECULA, Calif. -- An angry father is accused of using a stun gun on a 23 year old man who sent his 17 year old daughter an explicit cell phone picture.
William Atwood Sr., 45, was charged Wednesday with multiple felonies in connection with the case.
Authorities say Atwood lured Justin Moore to his home, ordered him to strip down to his boxer shorts, and tied him up and tased him with a stun gun before turning him over to a sheriff's deputy.
Moore told authorities he sent a photo of his genitals to several friends, including Atwood's daughter, as a joke.
Atwood apparently didn't think the joke was funny when his daughter told him about the picture in January.
According to court records, Atwood called the Sheriff's Department saying that Moore sent pornography to a child.
Before detectives could investigate the claim, Atwood told deputies that Moore came to his home uninvited.
He admitted telling Moore to take off his clothes and says he bound his wrists and ankles with zip ties.
Deputies found Moore at Atwood's home naked, tied up and extremely frightened.
Moore tells a different story. He says that Atwood called him and asked him to come over to discuss the photo. When he arrived, Atwood was holding a shotgun, Moore told officials.
He says Atwood ordered him out of his car and fired a shot. Atwood pulled him off the ground by his feet, injuring his shoulder, according to Moore.
Atwood told Moore he had connections with the Pechanga tribe and was going to have him buried on the reservation, court records say.
Moore said he believed that Atwood was going to kill him.
A short time later, Atwood pulled out a handgun and a stun gun.

Oh, quit whining. It could have been a knife, or pruning shears.
If it were my 17 year old daughter, the headline would have included a reference to a 12 gauge shotgun and rock salt.
Kids these days will just have to learn the hard way, I suppose. No cell phones or texting when I was a teenager, and that was only back in the early 90s.
I can hear the event now...
You think that’s funny...zap
If you ever send another picture like that...zaaap
Dont you so much as look at my daughter again....zaaaap
As much as it would scare the crap out of me, that’s the kind of father I’d want the girl I’m dating to have.
But with that, she’d at least be 21, as I’ll be 25 in October. No kids for me.
Why do I suddenly feel old
As the father of two daughters, where is the crime?

Though, really, making him get naked? Maybe we'll play a couple games of cards in the jury room, just to get the point across that the line might have been skirted just a little bit there.
i guess nobody ever explained to the dad how shoot, shovel, shut up works. The DA charged the wrong guy and should be ashamed of himself.
I think we are all pretty much in agreement here.
It was just a joke.
That’s something MY dad would have done, if a pic like that was sent to me!
Well done, Dad.
10 Rules For Dating 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 his 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, in fact,
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 utilising 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 which features chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better.
Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a pot-bellied, balding, middle-aged, dim-witted has-been. But 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.
Funny - I was just thinking about the three S’s!
The crime is in the imagination of a weakened and irrelevant society. It sounds to me like this douche bag had it coming.
He could get an illegal immigrant jury, and even they would agree: NOT GUILTY!
Had he done that to my daughter, he’d be lucky if that’s all that had happened to him.
Ha, Ha! I have not seen that statement in over 20 years. It is a real keeper.
Hi tech redneck. Old Skool would have been a bull prod. Seen it done, more than once.
It took my daughters to have teen age daughters of their own for them to FULLY realize why MY house was the only house on the block with teen age girls that didn’t have a stream of young lads around, NEVER got TP’d, windows NEVER soaped up, cars in yard never messed with etc etc.
They kind of figured (rightly so) that I was not only crazy, but was also armed and dangerous and probably the only non pencil pushing parent in the neighborhood- - I never really bothered to check, it added to my mystique.
Also the teen age boys behavior ‘counted’ as to who I would hire for summer jobs.
Ah, life was good then, just didn’t realize it ... ha...
My neighbor always makes sure he’s cleaning his guns when any guys come in to pick up his daughter for a date.
“Deputies found Moore at Atwood’s home naked, tied up and extremely frightened.”
I’ll bet his porn sending days are over!
It’s a shame Atwood may have ruined his on life to protect his daughter. Moore should man up & not press charges.
Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a pot-bellied, balding, middle-aged, dim-witted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless god of your universe...
Be afraid. Be very afraid
You sound like me.
Years ago at our oldest daughter's engagement party at out house I pulled my future SIL aside and whispered in his ear.
"(Her Name) is still my little baby. And if you ever hurt her in any way, I will hunt you down and kill you."
"That aside, welcome to the family"
Now I thought I had 'whispered', but one of our old, old, friends form the wife and my teenage days overheard me. She told me it was 'good advice' and I did the right thing :-)
And as things would have it, our SIL is a great guy. Hs a good job (some kind of Computer System Admin or Tech) and treats her like a princess. And now we have three lovely grandchildren. Plus he's no sissy - he knows Karate, studied Filipino Knife Fighting, Samurai Sword Fighting, and collects Samurai Swords. And he can handle a gun too.
But he still knows I meant what I said many years ago.
Rock salt is pretty much useless in a shotgun as far as bothering anyone.

Here lies Less Moore
Four slugs from a .44
From before America became sissified ..............
But vigilantism goes against our criminal justice system. Which is why the father now has to be punished...not for why he did it but because the system doesnt work when people take the law in their own hands.
Think about this for a second...what if Mr. Atwood here accidently killed this kid in the process of threatning him? He won’t be protecting his daughter anymore. He’ll be in prison the rest of his life.
I have two daughters, and have been known to answer the door in my shirtsleeves while wearing my well-filled shoulder holster.
The husband of one of my girls (and now father of three great grandkids) is the one who said,
"Good evening, Sir! Wow! Is that a HK P7? M8? Could I show you the 1911 I'm working on some time?"
I’ve updated my copy of that to change Rule 10 to the desert and Gulf War Syndrome but other than that, it’s still fresh and useful.
That's what a shovel is for. I would think killing this guy was a bit excessive, but only a bit.
Old School to the bone.
Give him a medal.
Rock salt in a shot gun is not for killing...it’s for STINGING. Watch the video and then go outside and let a friend shoot you with it at 10 yards and then you will find out what it really does.
I know what it does from testing. At 10 yards it will do nothing at all unless it gets in the perp’s eyes.
Besides, the perp might have a gun with actual rounds in it.
It is the height of foolishness to point a shotgun loaded with rock salt at a person. On several levels.
If you point one at me, the return fire will lead based...
Are any of those grandchildren granddaughters?
Here's hoping you live to see your Samurai SIL pull some young man aside and whisper some "advice" ...
Rule for dating Chuck Norriss’ daughter:
I always figured it scared the piss out of them than anything.
>>As the father of two daughters, where is the crime?<<
And the crime was what?
Oh. He used a stun gun instead of a .45. OK, I get it.
It is interesting of how protective fathers are of their daughters, even well into adulthood. Yet they rarely show that same level of protection for their sons.
Dad should get a postage stamp in his honor!
Yep. The oldest. She's 9 now
And I'm sure our SIL will pass on some good advice too.
Or if some wonder drug is found, I will :-)
