This person is a menace, actually the whole family are criminals. A few weeks before his father got sent to state prison for throwing a supermarket employee through a window while trying to steal deli meat. They are all drug addicts. The only son who isn't locked up YET is Jerry aka Jeremiah Butterfield but he' well on his way to being in prison.
