A very brave 10 year old boy from Connecticut didn’t hesitate to blow the whistle on his bad dad’s stupidity when he dialled 911, moments before his drunken dad flipped and crashed his car into a ditch.
According to news sources, Owen Gilman (49) was drunk out of his mind and had partaken in a little bit of the ol’ Mary Jane before getting behind the wheel of his Jeep, with his 10 year old son and 12 year old daughter in tow. The brave boy feared for his life, telling the cops that he and his sister considered jumping out of the car because it would be safer than staying and being in a crash. Moments after the boy rang 911, the car, which was hurtling along the highway at a dangerous speed, crashed into a Jeep and pushed it into a ditch.
Unfortunately the drunken daddy wasn’t injured (doesn’t that always seem to be the way?), but fortunately the brave boy and his sister suffered only bruising and lacerations. The driver of the Jeep is in a fair condition at a local hospital. Drunken daddy failed a breath test and was subsequently arrested. He has been charged with driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance, assault with a motor vehicle and more drugs charges. A baggie of pot was found in plain view in drunken/drugged daddy’s car.
Owen Gilman was being held on $35,000 bond until his parents came along and posted his bail for him. They also supported him in court when the judge slammed his actions. WTF? This dickhead nearly killed their grandchildren and they’re covering up his wrongdoings, posting his bail and supporting him in court! If there is a next time, which will be likely if he’s still allowed to see them, he may very well kill them! Give Mum sole custody of the kids and get this bastard away from them. He can go crawling back to his own Mummy and Daddy and they’ll tell him what an evil witch she is for keeping “his” kids away from him.
How much do you wanna bet that this bad dad will have the gall to punish his son for calling the cops on him?
