We received an e-mail threat from a Gerry Pearson (email@example.com) in reference to a blog star we previously profiled. Readers might remember the profile from the early days of Charleston Thug Life. Go back and re-familiarize yourself with that saga.
First the e-mail.
The subject line read: Garrett Pearson
"I'm not too sure where all of your information is coming from but the family will file suit for all false accusations being made in these statements."
Well, let's see, Gerry. Our information came from Garrett's own public postings on his Facebook page and the case search site of the 11th Judicial Circuit. If there are any falsehoods in Garrett's lengthy criminal history you might want to take it up with the Clerk of Court there. Anything else should be handled between you and Garrett. Maybe the administration of a fatherly ass-whipping will prove to be the answer to resolving his criminal tendencies. We doubt it, though. Wasn't his mother locked up once or twice?
The mugshot above was a result of Momma Pearson being charged with trying to smuggle contraband to her son Garrett while he was incarcerated.
That charge was dismissed in March of 2010 when she agreed to plead guilty to this charge from 2007 - Intimidation of Court Officials, Jurors or Witnesses. She was sentenced to one year, suspended in favor of six months of probation.
Hey, Gerry, when you try to intimidate someone you should probably ensure you are on firm legal footing. Furthermore, you should make sure the folks you are trying to intimidate don't have a firm grasp on the law themselves. You can piss up a rope if you want to, but we promise you it will cost you a LOT of cash and property. Have a great day!!
Update: As mentioned by some of our readers here and in our e-mail, Garrett Pearson was arrested yesterday for DUI and Possession of Marijuana. His younger brother Gerry wants to be a police officer. He might want to disassociate himself from Garrett.
