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.
