South Ashe St? Assault rifle? Body armor? Why wasn't the incident that occurred Dec. 21st reported about in the Pilot. Sounds like an extremely dangerous and newsworthy situation to me. The suspect's name is not even mentioned in this article. Truly fantastic job by the Southern Pines police on this one, but why is the suspect not named? Though it is pretty obvious Robert Stewart is guilty...his name is all over the paper for his crimes and he has not been convicted yet. This situation sounded as though it had the potential to be just as bad or worse than the Pine Lake tragedy. Must have been a military guy or someone with connections to avoid the front page and having his name mentioned here. Cover up anyone? What's the real story editors of the Pilot?
No record of him in county jail. http://www.moorecountync.gov:81/dcn/
Would someone that started lobbing grenades indiscriminately in a relatively busy late night downtown Pinehurst be allowed to be bailed out the next day? That is essentially what this lunatic was doing. What a joke.
realblr...I agree that Pinehurst cops write too many tickets instead of issuing warnings for ticky tacky things.
But this guy is going to get far worse than probation and community service if there is any justice in Pinehurst.
BTW not first offense...this guy is a real winner at the ripe age of 23...just lucky he didn't add vehicular homicide to his list of cowboy accomplishments. he has avoided prison long enough...throw away the key.
This guy should never drive another vehicle for the rest of his life. Having just gotten off work and not a single drink in me, I witnessed him getting into his truck in front of Dugan's fumbling with his keys...obviously wasted. As I was parking my car on Market Sq he floored his truck and flew past me fishtailing all over the the wet street narrowly missing several vehicles before slamming on his breaks and whipping the truck around to start speeding up Magnolia and then the same thing onto Chinquapin. All you could hear was tires squealing and his engine floored until he started hitting the street signs and divider. Next he came into view again and started sideswiping several cars in front of the Holly Inn at high speed and showed no signs of stopping until his truck seemingly got lodged into another vehicle at which point a lot of people in front of Dugans started screaming for him to stop and others started running towards his truck. Cowboy Coy then unstuck himself by slamming the truck in reverse and gunning it forward once again before stalling out on the curb on the other side of the street.
Against my better judgment I ran to try and stop him or help potential injured until others that ran towards him yelled he had a gun. At that point my better judgment kicked in and I headed back towards Dugans. This idiot Cowboy Coy could have killed countless people with his 7000 pound battering ram and utter disregard for what he was running into. He was doing everything in his impaired power to flee the scene in his vehicle. Completely surreal and frightening experience. I hope they bury him under the jail and he never gets a chance to reproduce to make more of his kind.
I suppose we should burn down the Louvre and the Accademia Gallery in Florence while we are at it. You close-minded, repressed people who are so outraged and ashamed of the human body are a much larger problem than a picture featuring a beautiful human body. Arguably God's greatest creation. Look at the culture that grew like bacteria in a petri dish with priests in the Catholic church. Look at the hypocrisy of Ted Haggard and others preaching morals and admonishments from on high. Shame and repression of normal human sexuality and expression is more a danger to society than tasteful displays of the human form and a healthy understanding of acceptable sexual behavior where no one is subjugated or hurt. Is this America or Afghanistan? Sounds like some of you would fit in more with Osama Bin Laden and the Taliban than a true Christian society. I suppose we should turn off the Olympics or force all the gymnasts, swimmers and other athletes to wear burkas. Our time and energy is better focused towards bettering mankind with love, acceptance, education, and understanding instead of wallowing in anger over something so innocent. All that said, knowing how rabid the conservative crazies can get around here, I am surprised the Pilot decided to publish the image on the front page!
Jerry just needs some saxual healing.
oceaniluv...it is obvious you have never met or had any interactions with, much less had your savings account emptied out by "Gerald". Like PT Barnum said, "there's a sucker born every minute." Those who profess but don't actually practice a strong faith in God love preying on people like you. Beware.
Gotta love a guy who fakes being a "man of God" and preys on lonely widows of soldiers killed in Iraq. This guy is the lowest form of scum imaginable. I hope he gets the book thrown at him. Having seen his behavior around town, I honestly don't know how anyone would fall for his bs. He was a clown.
