      • huh?

        Uhhhh a “wife beater” refers to a type of mens shirt………..you moron.

    So, why isn’t she arrested to? Sounds like she was just as much at fault.

    • kpdog

      yes, she should be arrested too….i’m serious. she should be charged with kidnapping. she crawled ontop of him and wouldn’t let him leave. so he pushed her.
      Her action of crawling ontop of him (kidnapping), “PROVOKED” him to push her.

  • hi

    So she was on top of him trying to pin him down and he gets arrested for battery? huh?

    • jimbo

      Mustache ride.

  • Jenn

    Someone pinning you down does not justify knocking them unconscious. Of course he should be arrested for that. He pushed someone so hard that they ended up in the hospital and then left the scene entirely. Do you really want her to be charged? Ridiculous.

  • Lucifer

    If she was truly scared of him or felt that he was a threat, you run. You don’t get on top of a man that you’re scared of. This was a wrestling match and he won. “Technically” yes, they did “assault” each other.

    Way to go d-bo. And really if ya know the guy like I happen to you would know she should be arrested. He’s not the type to hit a women even while under the influence. Also she should get an unlawful restraint charge. But this is Kansas and no mater what a women does she may still be seen as a victim.

    • NewAmerica

      Really no matter what a woman does she’s still the victim? There are many type of people that can become aggressive, just because you might not does not mean this person won’t either. Lame

  • sh wheet

    his dad is like the big wig of the jail…

    If you knew this man like you say you know him then you would know that he has had a previous charge of domestic battery. They call him D-Bo for a reason. This isn’t the first time this has happened. How could a 5 foot 4 inch woman pin a 6 foot 6 inch 250 lb man down and prevent him from leaving? Kidnapping? Really? He’s getting what he deserves. Pretty sure he needs some serious help!!!!

      I’d also like to know how an unconscious women crawls on top of someone. Maybe he pulled her on top of him before police arrived to make it look good. As you said, a 5 foot 4 inch woman doesn’t stand a chance against someone his size without a weapon.

  • seriously?

    self defense…arrest the bit&*.

    • Lee

      how could she defend herself!! she didnt do anything wrong!!

  • dougie

    Why does this arrest get its own article? I would like to see a article on all people arrested in the future please.

    • sh wheet

      its a cops son thats why.

      • how do u know that

        how do u know that smart 1?

  • WOW

    really??!! its not called kidnapping when maybe s he was trying to get him to calm down! and why would she need to go to jail!?! she didn’t really do anything wrong if u think long and hard about it.
    Im pretty sure that there is NO reason to talk crap about other people ! its not right !

  • STOP!!!!
