He was out on bond

 Gary L. Glass, 32, is accused of threatening his girlfriend with a knife in Jan., he is also charged with slashing her tires in Mar. He had been charged with aggravated menacing, intimidation of a crime victim and criminal damaging. He was released on bond.

Monday morning about 7 am, Cassandra Gray, 28, says her dogs were barking and woke her up in the home she shares with her parents. When she got up, Glass was allegedly standing in the doorway pointing a shotgun at her.  Allegedly he told her to come outside with him, he was going to shoot her then himself.

Gray convinced Glass to let her tend to the dogs first, and as she did so she called 911. When Glass realized what she was doing, a struggle began. During the struggle, the dogs attacked him. Gray managed to get the gun and ran to another room. As Glass came after her, she shot the gun. According to police Glass was hit in the "lower body and legs". Gray then locked herself in a bedroom until police arrived. Glass was taken to a hospital with injuries that do not appear to be life threatening.

Glass has been charged with felonious assault, aggravated burglary, kidnapping, and having weapon under disability.

First of all, he tackled the wrong gal didn't he? I bet he is regretting it now. And she showed him more mercy than he was going to show her. She didn't kill him. Also, I would be interested in learning if "lower body and legs" means what I think it does.  

Now let's think about this for a minute. He threatens her with a knife in Jan., slashes her tires in Mar. and so I wouldn't think it is any surprise to anyone that he is back there in Apr.

He was out on bond on the previous charges. No mention in the articles of house arrest or a monitoring device. Not even a mention of a restraining order (even if there had been one, that likely wouldn't have stopped him). Free on bond until his trial. Free to go about his business, no monitoring even though he had committed a violent crime. No matter that frequently cases with this type of history often end up as tragedies.

I can only imagine what this girl has gone through in the months waiting on trial. I would guess she has probably been living with a lot of fear and anger. She sounds like a smart girl and a very brave one. Very lucky too. She came up with an excuse to get away long enough to call 911, she got control of the gun, she tried to get away, and when he chased her, she pulled the trigger. But, even through all that she didn't kill him.

He may be in pain now, but he got lucky too.

    She was brave and strong. And compassionate too. She has a lot to be proud of.

    I like the dog attack part-loyal dogs. This woman is a strong lady, my heart goes out to her. I would not have been so nice, I’d aimed at his ugly mug!

    He’s bloody lucky to be alive, but, sadly, she’s lucky too. It could have very easily went the other way, as it so often does. Thank God she got the upper hand (meaning… the gun). Otherwise, she’d, more than likely, be dead right now.

    What do we need to do to keep these bastards locked up? How many women have to face these kinds of monsters when it becomes painfully clear how dangerous they are?

    I know. He had already been after her twice. It wouldn’t take a genius to figure out he would try again. If they bonded him the first time, he should have been held without bond the second time. At the very least, they should have had him with a monitoring device.
