" "He" is Leroy Wendall Bowling, 50, of Heizer "

"The grandchildren were all teenagers except for a 21-year-old"


Is it me or there was already something wrong with this family...

They must all be crosseyed or something. Inbreeding causes that.

Drunken Leroy Shooting at Grandkids for having Dreads, from his Trailer won in Bowling tournament in 1971.

What do I win?

No one was shot, he just was drunk," says Putnam County Sheriff Mark L. Smith. "Fired some shots at his grandkids. They called, and my guys went over there about 4:00 (a.m.)and got him out of the trailer."


During a video conference hearing Putnam County Magistrate Kim M. Blair set Bowling's bond at $70.000. As of this publication Monday morning Bowling remained in custody.
=================================================

Yup, justice is blind.

Leroy dreads going bowling so he got drunk in his West Virginia trailer instead. He then went shooting with his grandkids. What's wrong with that?

Sounds like a typical Thursday night in Fern Creek.

That's the funniest thing I've read today, thus far. White Trash Theater, indeed.

FTFA: Bowling faces three felony counts of Wanton Endangerment,

Why the hell was he shooting at their wantons? I guess he didn't want any great-grandkids?

/though given their apparent track record, the 21-year-old isn't too far from being called grandpappy, either
 
2007-12-11 12:17:13 PM  
Ok: Leroy was bowling and comes back to his trailer, drunk. His grandkids are there shooting some guy because he had dreads?

But at least he had chicken....
 
2007-12-11 12:21:29 PM  
Dammit, I just needed "taser" and "naked" for a line!

Let's see, what to put in this years xmas letter...got drunk, still living in "the" trailer, went bowling a few times, got drunk, played taser tag with the kids, got drunk... hmmm what else what else?

Leroy was the guy responsible for shooting the new Aliens vs. Predator trailer. His grandkids said he must have been drunk because the Predator's dreads make him look like he just went bowling in West Virginia?
 
2007-12-11 12:35:47 PM  
Wow! Become a grandfather in your 20's.

And now he's sitting in his cell, waiting for the grandkids to bail him out.

Baddest man in the whole damn town (of Heiser)?

And he told me that it was not the perfect country song, because it didn't say anything about mama, or rain, or prison, or trains...

Difficulty!? Son, West Virginia is never a difficulty when trying to explain redneck asshattery like this.

Ugliest page I've seen outside of anything on myspace. Seriously, 1996 called, they want their web design skillz back. Also, gotta love the helpful links on the left side... sex offender registry and the "Meth Lab Hotline".

They don't call it the "tubes" here in WV. It's the Robert C. Byrd Informational Pipe System.

Am I so old that 1996 is now considered ancient history?

It's disturbing, but the small local paper here in SE WV usually has two cases of molestation on the front cover.

jsobota: Leroy dreads going bowling so he got drunk in his West Virginia trailer instead. He then went shooting with his grandkids. What's wrong with that?

"Leroy, who gets stuck with his grandkids every Sunday, dreads bowling. But the kids want to go, and, after getting drunk, the conflict results in their shooting."

Sad really.
