(Source) — A North Toledo man pleaded not guilty today in Toledo Municipal Court to chasing a family member with a hatchet. Noel E. Dawson Jr., 63, of the 400 block of Elder Drive, is charged with domestic violence, assault, both first-degree misdemeanors; criminal damaging, a second-degree misdemeanor; and failure to disclose personal information, a fourth-degree misdemeanor. Toledo Municipal Court Judge Robert Christiansen set bond at $50,000 Tuesday with no option to post 10 percent. The case was continued to today.
I don’t enjoy defending hatchet wielding madmen and I don’t enjoy victim blaming, but we’ve gotta hear this one play out a little bit before I shun Noel E Dawson Jr. Because to me? This looks like a pretty simple case of he was given a bad beer, which inspired a bitter beer face, and he lost all control of his cerebral function. Noel was in a state of bad beer inspired mania, we’ve all been there. We all saw the warning commercials in the 1990s.
So it’s kind of on the family member here, the one who stayed within striking distance. Hanging out around a bitter beer face is like staying within spitting distance of a dilophosaurus once it’s thrown out its face wings.
You know you’re in trouble and the onus is now on you. No one blames a dilophosaurus for acting like a dinosaur and no one should blame a BBF for acting like a BBF.
