Opa-Locka PD: Man Shoots Boy After Mistaking Paintball Gun For Real Deal – CBS Miami (

MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — A 10-year-old boy has been shot and wounded after homeowner mistook his paintball gun for the real deal.

Michael Williams, 26, told Opa-locka police his son begged him to drive by a home where young people were gathered Sunday night so he could fire his paintball out the window, according to a police report released Tuesday.

Wait one minute. This “father” thought it was a good idea to allow his son to do a mock drive-by shooting? Is he stupidly insane? What kind of crap is he teaching his kid? Is this like a Father-Son bonding thing? “Daddy Took Me To My First Drive-By.” ?

Williams drove by the home as his son fired off several rounds, police said. The homeowner confused the paintball for real gunfire, telling police he thought his family was being attacked. He fired one shot, which struck the child.

This is Opa-locka we are talking about, unfortunately not one of the best neighborhoods in the county crime-wise so a barrel of a gun sticking out of the window of a slow moving vehicle does not say “prank” but “lots of bullets are coming your way to kill you.”

But wait, there is more!

The boy then lost his balance and was run over by his father’s vehicle, police said.

Oh for flock’s sake! Father of the Year award right there. But there is still an extra offering of stupid by dear daddy.

No additional details on the child’s injuries or condition were released. Williams drove the child home and his mother called 911, according to police.

What was he going to do? Slap a band-aid, give him a couple of ibuprofen and wipe off the tire marks and the blood of him before going to bed for the night?

The Miami Herald reports the father was charged with child neglect with great bodily harm. According to a police report, Williams “acted recklessly by agreeing to conduct a drive-by paint ball shooting,”

That is a second degree felony which can bring him 15 years in prison. And he should serve every frigging second of it for being that monumentally stupid.

4 thoughts on “Fatherhood: you did it very wrong. (So much stupid concentrated in one event.)”
  1. Rarely is there a situation where a dead-beat absentee father is the preferred option.

    You found one.

  2. The according to the police report “acted recklessly by agreeing to conduct a drive-by paintball shooting” was probably read and said in the driest tones possible.

    I imagine the initial report probably has many strike throughs of colorful language and questions about Williams mental faculties.

  3. Quick math here

    Child is 10, father is 26. That means Dad was all of 15, maybe 16 when he knocked up Mom. Does not exactly sound like Dad had a sufficient amount of adult experience before gaining the title of Father, if you ask me.

    I am also going to go out on a limb here, and assume Dad did not exactly have the care and guidance of an adult father when he was growing up either.

  4. The drive by father is so lucky that the homeowner only fired one round and did not empty the mag.
