Someone thought this guy would not only make a good boyfriend, but allowed him to breed as well? Wow.

Really only a 5000 bond? this guy is currently out on probation for what appears to be drug charges stemming from 2007/2008/2009. Odds are he was whacked out when this assault happened!! Hopefully his probation officer already has a revocation into the courts!

Another tough guy who excels in beating up girls. Saint Charles County seems to be full of these cowards.
