Way to go Sheriff and deputies. Will sleep better tonight.

Maybe he won't be smiling when he becomes someones prison wife. He sure wrecked his life, at such a young age. What posesses a person to do what he did, I don't get it.

Hey Phillip, welcome to dumb and dumber.

His mugshot looks like he is on something now compared to how he looked two years ago. Just saying.... Plus he doesn't seem like the brightest light bulb in the package. Just saying....

of course he's not smiling that big now or since substance abuse has taken hold of him. We all as a "society" have failed him. I have known this young man since he was my children's age now. The substances that he is more than evidently taking has warped him. There are 2 sides to every coin. NOT justifying him by any means but seriously put the shoe on the other foot. Some times people do loose their heads because no one was there for them. Don't judge someone for sinning differently than you do.

All these people who are commenting that hes a crack head uhhh wrong! Hes isn't a felon or he wouldn't have had a licence to carry a gun- he turned himself in also- they act like they found him themselves..Phillip has a heart of gold ..and you shouldn't be so quick to believe everything that all these officers tell you. Yes there are good cops, but there are some very arrogant ones too. Please don't be so quick to judge. Thank you and have a nice day:)

The guy also DID know Phillip maybe someone should investigate him instead of just pointing their finger..he is prolly grinning because the whole story they are telling is full of lies...just saying. Have a nice day.
