Instant idiot, jut add alcohol.
A judge increased a former Pacific Grove man’s bail to $1 million Friday, saying he was “just waiting to kill” his ex-girlfriend.
The woman, who previously was reluctant to testify, told the court that in October, a drunken Michael Dooley became enraged that her 11-year-old daughter left food on the kitchen counter. He punished the girl by ripping apart her pet hermit crab in her presence, pointed a gun at her mother’s face and threatened to kill them, their dog and himself if the woman tried to leave.
“You’re a danger,” Judge Russell Scott told the 47-year-old man at the conclusion of his preliminary hearing. “You’re just waiting to kill her and you don’t have control when you drink.”
