His ex would also call the police on him for violating the restraining order....by her going to bars he was at, then calling the police on him being there. She did everything she could to get him thrown into jail as often as she could and get him in front of that judge.
He lost his land and his house and he was living in his pick up truck and work trailer in an effort to keep up.

Ever hear the saying, "A stallion will drive off a threat to the herd....but a mare will chase down the threat and kill it"?

IMO when you hear what sounds like your voice, you should look around to see if there's a hole in the ground somewhere around you.
Abuse of the court systems do happen but anecdotal stories don't excuse all those who haven't payed child support that could have. Stallions and mares? Seriously?

Been desperate for help a couple times over the years, For example having to pick up an employee from their home that doesnít have a car because I didnít have any other help.
But that's your choice, as it should be. There's no obligation to track down people that don't show up for work.

Re: Employee In Jail....


Just a quick need to know- how old is the girlfriends kid?

I had a guy come in with a black eye and a sore arm-his live in girlfriend's 16 yr old son punched him in the face and hit him with a bat because he wouldn't give him the keys to the only car. He couldn't defend himself properly-ie: make him stop- because his girl was screaming she'd have him arrested. Kid showed up at my site later that week to take the guys car, they started screaming at each other while clients were there.
I went out and told the kid and his buddy who brought him to get off my site or else. They replied they weren't eighteen, can't touch us, Eff off
Cops were called and they were reluctant to do anything because all of a sudden I was threatening. I eventually got the kids off my job and the employee quit the next day because his girlfriend screamed him into it. Poor bastard went broke not long after- upside is she and her snotty brat left him living in his car.

My feeling is we've become far too soft with being able to disipline kids and protect ourselves against abusers who know the system.
But if a person beats on someone who can't defend themselves against them, burn 'em.

Re: Employee In Jail....


That's why you just tell them 'Please leave immediately.' If they don't just turn around and call the police and let them know you're being threatened with a 2X4 or whatever. The kids will hear it. Problem solved one way or another.

Sorry for the long delay to reply. I missed this during the holiday. The girlfriends kid is 19 or 20. Worthless kid living on the couch with no job.

All is resolved now. I didn't attend court date. He received a lesser charge and diversion for the lesser charge. He left the girlfriend and that messed up stuff and is back working hard for me. Thanks for everyone's advice and comments they are all great and helpful in the learning process!

RangoWA- There is no calling bull on the mandatory arrest for a domestic disturbance at least here in AR and when I lived in Texas. I saw several guys I worked with arrest because the other party somehow had an injury. I do not know if the injury came from the disturbance or they injured themselves by slapping their own face or some other part of their body.

Like I said, it was bull. You changed it from a phone call to an injury.
