Did anyone see this story in the Packet?

This is a crazy story and it gets better if you read the visitor comments left on the article. This guy is a real piece of work and seems to get a free pass from the Sheriff and his prosecutor wife (if you believe the comments). Hilton Head might be a hot vacation spot, but it's still a small southern town.

I saw this on saturday and thought something was amiss - but after reading the comments today from the readers, I don't know if we're getting the whole story. Does anyone know if he is a resident, or just a frequent visitor?

Rich & Rob,

I also read the article this weekend and browsed through the messages. I don't know how valid the comments are, but the fact that that guy has never done any significant jail time does seem suspicious. If nothing else, a history of physically assulting women in public places points to the fact that the guy is a menace. I got the impression that he is a full time Hilton Head resident. Hopefully he will be found guilty and see jail time for this pattern of violent anti social behavior.

Cheers,
Will

What a crazy article! Isn't it amazing that something like that could go on in Hilton Head Island. I certainly hope Mr. Haire has to answer for his actions this time. I think the comments on the article are more interesting and informative than the story itself.

It IS amazing that something like that could happen in HHI. That Barmuda Triangle seems to have a different element. We were there last summer when a fight broke out in the cigar bar place with the moose. It was between some local, middle aged guy (totally hammered)(everyone seemed to know him there) and a couple of local young guys. They started out talking and ended up in a huge fist fight. Both bartenders jumped over the bar and ushered the group out quickly. The bar was left unattended while they broke up the fight outside. We left after that. We won't be back to the Barmuda Triangle. That was the night we discovered Park Plaza and all the fun and classy nightlife.
Someone later told us that a lot of locals and the waiters/waitresses from the area go to that bar after work. It was only 10 or 11pm when that all happened.
I'm not saying that a fight can't happen anywhere at anytime, but I'd rather be with the tourists who just want to have fun on vacation, than the kids who want a rowdy night out.
