  • wow…..REALLY?!?!?!

    Maybe the NPPD should give y’all a truthful report!!! THAT’S NOT WHAT HAPPENED!!!! They NEVER responded to the disturbance at his house! She called in with untruthful information, they called his mom and told her they were worried about his wellfare, so she went to check on him!!! After his mom called the wonderful Dan Shea back to tell him he was ok he went and arrested him!!! Not every man is a woman beater and not every woman is an ANGEL!!!!

  • Two sides of the law

    How about charging this girl for breaking and entering??!!! Yes there are two sides to the story! I’m positive this young man did NOT choke her but I fully understand him wanting any intruder out of his home!
