SWEET FOR BITTER” Isaiah 5:20
to get to theirs. Some of their behaviors are not only unsafe
they can border on reckless. Mr. Michael Haglin living off
Beltline at 4242 White River Court is one of the worst offenders.
I provide safety patrols for my neighbors and his, at their request.
He refuses to even look at paperwork asking him to join our
Nextdoor App and while under the influence of something, twice
has told me, "he's not going to turn me into the police" or "he'll
personally handle the security on his cul-de-sac. Recently
while I was parked at the intersection of Redwood and White River Dr.
as a reminder to those passing through, to stop at the stop sign,
not drive at unsafe speeds through the streets of our seniors
and widows, and to not text while driving, Mr. Haglin chose to
draw attention to himself, by running the stop sign, spinning the
rear wheels of his truck and fish-tailing through what was a
pretty congested intersection at the time, and flooring the gas
as he raced recklessly toward his home west of Redwood Dr.
emerge onto the other end of White River, from Eagles Nest,
as is their custom, I put on my yellow caution light and attempted
to warn anyone in Mr. Haglin's path. (Note I have two Nextdoor
Neighbors that also witnessed this reckless behavior and will
be providing affidavides to the DA and the court. When I
arrived at Mr. Haglan's Court and made the circle, stopping in
front of his home, (we have slanted gutters) he immeditantly
began screaming that I had parked on his lawn. If my left-front
tire was on any part of his lawn it would have been the edge.
advanced on my drivers door in spite of the fact I warned him
not to get that close he ignored my warning until I produced a
can of pepper spray, then he did as I asked and retreated to
his lawn toward the front of my car where he continued to
rant and rave and call me a string of distasteful names.....
me trouble before, as 5 others have over the past 2 years,
(all having connections to 5 drug homes and operations)
I felt it was likely he too was taking and or involved in some
patrols I do, but why would he risk the lives of others just to
prove a point to me?
brain and their would be no meeting of the minds I started to
prepare to leave the premises. Encouraged by my pending
departure, I guess, Mr Haglin increased the tone and was
beginning to act in a threatnening manner. At that point he
also cleared his throat and spit on my drivers window and
my cheek. Being a Agent Orange Vet, my resistance to disease
and/or bacteria is poor, and I felt this assualt warrented a
more agressive defense on my part so I again picked up a
canister of pepper spray and as I moved from the curve, at
an angle that would bring me closer to Mr. Haglan, I felt
the tone and pitch of Mr Haglan was such, coupled with
his motion, that he might intend to sucker puch me as I
drove away and past him, so I fired a short burst of pepper
spray between him and the front end of my car to protect
myself, and to keep him back away from my rear wheels
if he proceeded forward, which until then, I fully expected
him to do.
A Redding Police Officer, with an Agenda, likely union related,
felt I committed a crime and arrested me. I had to post $10,000
bound and now I have to appear in court on a count of Felony
Discharge of Pepperspray. It's all bull shit and is being addressed
as I type this. EAB
