12:29 PM PT — TMZ got more info on the boy’s father’s arrest, and the story was even crazier than we first thought — it turns out the man actually shot, Nash claimed he was facing him Felony charges for it…according to police.
Kaufman County Police Precinct 2 Chief, Jason Johnsontold TMZ…it happened on Thursday, the kid’s dad, Brian Thomas Brunsonwho was arrested.
According to Kauffman County, the Nash family’s claim that Brunson was constantly arguing with them in his driveway with a Ruger semi-automatic pistol in his hand was not illegal per se. According to police, the boy actually came out with his father to challenge the Nash family too!
What happened next was allegedly horrific… The sheriff’s office said Brunson allegedly left the gun on his porch at one point, but went back to pick it up after the altercation continued – allegedly at Reckless way that causes it to go out.
Police said the bullet nearly hit Brunson’s own daughter, who was standing behind him, but luckily it missed. He was booked for a deadly act, a felony due to potential harm. We’re told it’s been a year since the 9-year-old faced criminal mischief charges himself…but for now, he’s not going to be legally ringed for it.
A young white boy rushed to the home of a black family in Texas with a whip and appeared to be thinking about beatings, and the whole thing was caught on video.
It’s wild…Ring’s shot was taken from the front porch Di and Carissa NashAt their home near Dallas, it shows what they claim are children from nearby neighbors angrily coming over, allegedly in search of their 9-year-old daughter – and making his presence known.
As you can see… this little boy, himself no more than 7 or 8 years old, knocked on the front door with his other hand – and then knocked on the door a few times with his whipping hand.
Karissa then opened the door and blamed the boy for leaving her property and threatened to call the police. It seemed that the child was in a hurry after that. Sadly, the conflict is not over yet – further footage shows them confronting the boy’s alleged father.
Dee handles the chat, and right off the bat…it’s not pretty. The man denied guilt and demanded to see evidence — the boy allegedly scratched their car after Karissa told him to take a taxi, according to the Nash family — and both Nash’s parents offered to show him.
However, the guy doesn’t seem to be really interested… He tells them to leave his property and makes a fuss about the plants Dee may or may not have stepped on.
The Nash family also claimed that the man who opened the door had a gun on him and he appeared to be ready to use it. According to reports, police actually received the call – the man was apparently arrested and charged with a fatal act.
The father has been named in some media and we have confirmed that a man of the same name was arrested/bailed on Friday…but the details are still hazy and it is not clear if that is the one pictured here. The Kauffman County Sheriff’s Office declined to release more information until Monday.
