III%er needs help bad!!!
Beanburner, of Burnt Beans and BS, is needing our help and prayers. His son was the victim of a vicious hit-and-run (intentional, NOT accidental) in Clayton NM early Saturday morning. The perp was chased to the NM-TX border where he evaded the cops and could be hiding in my neck of the woods. Possibly Dumas, Dalhart or Amarillo.
Late 90s to mid 2000s white or light colored Chevy pickup with heavy front-end damage and a broken grill. And a sorry son-of-a-bitch driving it. I know most of y'all aren't around here, but prayers work from anywhere.
If you live in the area keep an eye out for this douchebag and if you do see him, call the cops and tell them he is a wild eyed sumbitch yelling that they won't take him alive no matter what.
They have identified the alleged perpetrator.
CLAYTON, N.M. -- The Clayon Police Department has nearly concluded its investigation into the hit and run incident that occurred early Saturday morning, but are searching for the man they believe was driving the white pickup involved.
