Burlington - After about 8 hours of drinking, Ronald Charette told his wife he was “going in heavy” to confront a Burlington man he suspected of harassing his daughter, according to police. The 55-year-old Charette armed himself with a pistol, hopped into his silver Jeep Liberty and set out Sunday evening for the man’s apartment on North Winooski Avenue in Burlington, police stated.As soon as Charette left his home, his wife called 911 and told a dispatcher about his plan. The dispatcher relayed the information to Burlington police, who intercepted Charette and stopped his Jeep on South Williams Street.A search of the vehicle turned up an open Budweiser can – still cold – and a Heckler and Koch USP 9mm handgun with a 17-round magazine and an 18th round chambered, Burlington police officer Tyler Badeau wrote in an affidavit filed Monday in court.Charette later admitted at the station that, en route to the North Winooski apartment, he pointed the gun at a car full of teenagers who had made him angry on Main Street, according to Badeau.
“Going in heavy.” Boom sold. I’m using that term now till the day I die. Don’t care what I’m doing either. Blogging, shopping for groceries, eating popcorn. Anytime I have to turn it up a level I’m just going to say “I’m going in heavy.” It may be my new favorite phrase of all time. Going in heavy. Love it. Need it. Got to use it.
PS – Usually I rip people apart who Narc on their significant others. Not here. The wife had no choice. Not when Ronald said he was going in heavy. If she doesn’t place that phone call somebody is dead. That’s the definition of going in heavy.
