    Where do women find these losers? This guy should be sentenced to having to wear a shirt that says “I BEAT WOMEN” for the rest of his miserable life. The sad thing is he would probably still get a girlfriend.

    Sounds like she invited him even though there was a notice not to trespass. Some people never learn.

    I bet it was her smart mouth that made him do that. He looks like a great guy, that wouldn’t hurt anyone, unless provoked. FREE RICO!!

      Jack Wagon- you must be my X. You have the spouse abusive mentality. It is always the abused persons fault. Did you two go to different schools together?

        So you chose to stay in an abusive relationship and want to cry about it now? You’re the type of woman Jack Wagon is talking about. Birds of a feather……

        sillysue- you wouldn’t know sarcasm if it smacked you upside your head and gave you 2 black eyes.

    I sure hope the GF/victim wasn’t the one who posted the bond for this abusive POS!

      It probably was… My neighbors would get high and then beat the crap out of each other. Well the one that “lost” would call the 911 to have the police & paramedics some out and then press charges. When the “victim” was released from the Hospital, they would go to the Sheriffs Office to post bail to have the “abuser” released. Oh and this has been going on for 2-3 years now.

      His mama says he a good boyz

  9. crazyhorse on July 29, 2015 at 1:15 pm

    He gets the criminal of the year award. It doesn’t take a lot of intelligence to be a criminal, but apparently he has none.

  10. Sarah on July 29, 2015 at 1:28 pm

    Bet his IEP can’t save him now! The Key’s kids were always in trouble in school too. He is the oldest of 5 kids. It’s only a matter of time before they all end up on here.

  11. NTNG on July 29, 2015 at 1:42 pm

    What a POS. He looks like he wet his pants in the picture. I’m sure he is tough as nails when he hangs with all his fellow LP hood-rats.

  12. Neigbor on July 29, 2015 at 2:30 pm

    Look at those bags under his eye. Rico looks cracked out.

      to fat to be crack monster…unless he’s just starting out his crack career

  13. J on July 29, 2015 at 4:30 pm

    Rico doesnt appear to be that guy everyone is making him. None of us were there. He was so wrong by placing hands on her regardless, but he is not the monster everyone is making him. Im not defending him by no means, but i have been in his presence enough to know he isnt what yall are saying.

    • Joe on July 30, 2015 at 5:50 am

      Wrong, he is just another hood rat POS!!

        *An idiot* Whoops….

      • Seriously??? on July 30, 2015 at 12:54 pm

        actually it’s you’re an idiot

  14. Tell You What on July 29, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    I blame the female for choosing to be with a scumbag like him. Happens all the time because women just can’t resist a “bad boy” but don’t want to pay the price for being with one. It’s an endless and ridiculous cycle that will only continue to repeat.

    It’s amazing how there are 14 comments about this article, yet only 4 about the sex offender story…

    • Anonymous on July 30, 2015 at 8:09 am

      It would have only been 13 but you decided to chime in with your infinite wisdom.

      • Anonymous on July 30, 2015 at 10:34 am

        Well, its obvious you are not as WISE as you think you are. When I made my comment, there were 14, mine made #15…not #13.

          If you think the number is the important aspect of this you need to look up and see the joke going right over your head. ROFL

    • Anonymous on July 30, 2015 at 3:25 pm

      You can place some of the blame on News Net for that one since they put it as a side story and I didn’t even realize it was there until I read your post. Most of the side stories don’t interest me so I don’t pay attention to them.

    Nice “spunky” on his eye, must be from his “other” girlfriend.
