Monday night just before 8pm Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to a reported stabbing on Boyd Road near Four Corners. They arrived to find a 65-year-old male cut on the leg with a machette. They were told an argument had occurred between the victim and his son. MCHD responded to the scene along with Caney Creek Fire Department. The victim refused EMS service as he was going to the hospital with a family member. Deputies started looking for the suspect, Daniel A. Stearns, age 32. He was located at his home in the 13300 block of Roy Harris Loop, a short distance away. Deputies arrested Stearns and charged him with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He is being held without bond.
Amazingly just five hours before the argument he posted a John Wayne photo on his Facebook. On it was a caption which read, Never look for a fight. Never back down from one either.
Then just after the insident he posted on his Facebook for everyone to see, “Puss with his little flesh wound. Don’t get in the middle of my family…your hand still hurt? Don;t hit something that is harder than you are”.
This is not Stearns first brush with the law.
