Chase Wiatt: Letting it all out on FB
Chase Langston Wiatt has had quite a run, but with his latest felony arrest, the 19-year-old Crosby resident's luck might just have run out.

For the second time since June of 2009, Wiatt stands accused of assaulting someone with his car, and you would think this time around, the deferred adjudication he was given in the first case would be out of the question.

And not just because he is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Nope. That is just one topping on the deep dish pizza of criminal charges pending against Wiatt. Let's have a look at the records, shall we?

His odyssey of alleged offenses begins with the first assault case above, and continues with a pot bust in January of 2010. Seven months later he was arrested after allegedly waving a gun around in a roomful of people. That escapade landed him a charge of deadly conduct, a class A misdemeanor.

In November of last year, he was hit with a felony charge of credit/debit card abuse. Last Thursday he was allegedly caught with more weed and some Xanax, and then after that, he waited all of five days to rack up that second car-related assault.

Details are skimpy on the second car incident, but in the first, he was alleged to have knocked over a woman with his front bumper after a road rage fracas. The probable cause report stated that the arresting officer already knew Wiatt, who was by then barely an adult, by name and sight "through previous dealings."

So, if you're keeping score, from June of '09 through this week, Wiatt, a white kid from a relatively affluent area in suburban Crosby, has taken rides in cop cars from the Baytown Police Department, the Harris County Constables and the Harris County Sheriff's Department.

Someone, a person who might want to study up on the concept of tough love, has bonded him out five times. None of the cases have been resolved, so he's innocent until proven guilty and all that, but damn, yo...

And of course he has talked about some of it on his public Facebook page, too, where you can also see details of his stormy life with his baby mama "Tabatha."

Wiatt launched his new FB page in September, a few weeks after the deadly conduct bust, and for the first month, appeared to be trying to walk a righteous path, regularly quoting scripture and inspirational mottoes.

And then he changed his relationship status to single.

Tabatha sarcastically liked the change. And maybe feeling bested, Wiatt said he liked it too, and then upped the stakes, linking to Eminem's "Kim," the rapper's diatribe against his own baby mama. After venting thusly, Wiatt asked for permission to visit their infant daughter. Tabatha replied that he could do so the next day, and added that he should "grow up."

"Ha, Im grown homie," came his reply.

"act like it," Tabatha fired back. "u been hittin on 16 year old lil gurl ha, u really took a step up."

The next day found Wiatt manically reflective. In one hour's posting, he quoted the Bible, slammed Eminem for being a Freemason, implicated Jay-Z in the deaths of Tupac and Biggie Smalls, and praised 'Pac, Biggie, Bob Marley and Johnny Cash. (Say what you will about his behavior, and odd opinions, but the kid has pretty damn good taste.)

And then he crashed a few days later, writing this: "i wanna die ive never felt so much pain why??i feel like nothing"

Tabatha said she would always be there for him and said he was an "amazing guy who deserves a top-notch female," and added that she wished she could have been the one. "...but im not," she continued. "and i dnt think tht lil 16yr old is either tho u needa a woman not a kid."

An older man, perhaps a relative, told Wiatt to trust in God and that wisdom and maturity would come in time.

But by mid-October, Wiatt was lookin' to party, asking several friends where the action was.

On November 7, he was back in God mode. He posted a verse from Jeremiah: "I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the [Lord], thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."

And then, four days later, he was busted for swiping someone's credit card.

All was quiet for a month, save for the news that he and Tabatha had renewed their Facebook friendship, despite his dalliance with the high school temptress.

On December 10, Wiatt linked to Z-Ro's "These Days," a typically "me-against-the-world" spiritual meditation from Houston's King of the Ghetto.

He would link to that video three more times in the next few months, and then once more to "Help Me, Please," another desperate Z-Ro lament, in early January. Great as Z-Ro the Crooked is, anybody that into his desperate rhymes cannot be in a very good place.

For a few days Wiatt was asking people to help him find a job, the ever-helpful Tabatha encouraging him on.

And then he got really stupid, like Jason Merksamer stupid. (Like Merksamer, Wiatt comes from a McMansion-dotted hood near a golf course.) With all those cases pending against him, and a scant two days after getting popped with weed (for the second time in a year) and Xanax, Wiatt had this to say:

"fuck the world and the laws i smoke if i want fuck the law im still smokin bitches haha cwiatt free ha"

Tabatha told him to get his act together, and Wiatt said he would.

Only he didn't. By Sunday night he was looking to party some more. And early Tuesday morning, there came distant early warning of the latest storm:

"somebody jacked my car wth is wrong wit this world i just want peace," he wrote.

Apparently Wiatt sought vengeance instead. Later that day he was busted for assaulting a guy with his vehicle. Bond in this latest case has not yet been set.

We'll give the long-suffering Tabatha the last word:

"Dang baby daddy im tired of u gettin locked up, this makes 6 times since our daughters been born foo, this sucks! Mayb wen u get out u can stay outta trouble an b da daddy adrianna needs cuz I kno u can do it if u try, u feel me make good choices, things gotta b different wen u get out foreal,"

Foreal indeed.

Oh my goodness almost two years ago I was outside watering my plants. I always wondered about this hysterical woman. I saw this I cant beleive my eyes. I felt so sorry for this person in the car. She drove a cream colored suv she jumped out and was screaming hitting the glass of this car, her husband just died and she would get her bad son to kill him, cursing like a sailor. The car drove away and next I knew there was a cop there. I did not know but I was scared for the person in the car. Is this the woman that said she was assaulted by this boy. I live on sea palms and saw this woman in action. The boy in the car did nothing. If there was an assault charge attempt it should have been to the woman. An what was her problem does she need medication. Oh so the cop knew this boy according to the story. What was the motive. I witnessed this act.

Dilly, I am a friend of the family and Chase needs a witness to what actually happened. He is a great kid with a good heart, made a mistake or two - but alot of this is because the police have been trying to get him for anything they can!! From what I understand, that women got mad cause he passed her car, she chased him down, said he attempted to run her over (which is not true). She filed charges on him. Few days later she sent her son over to the lawn he was mowing and bashed his car with a bat. Chase's family filed assault charges and it was dismissed!! However Chase is now facing assault with a deadly weapon! Please email me so I can let his family know that you witnessed this and they can contact you!! Thank you and God bless you for any help you can give them!, sanmo911@sbcglobal.net

Some people do a good job with lies and manipulation. This is one of the most dependable and hard working kids I have ever known he mowed my lawn for years. Sad enough most of our youth do not have this kids motivated desire to even work. How can you do anything more when your tied up in this petty legal junk...And thats all this is. He has always been so eager to help people far from a crimmal. At this point he would probably do well with a program who could boost him to the next level.

Z-ro has songs that see deep in the wrong of the world. They are true life experiences turned into good. Hey man , whats wrong with any of the music and videos this kid listens to--All of these people have made a postive change so whats up... Its a good thing. This dude is cool and is right on........

I met this kid in High School at Crosby and have known of him for along time- Sad to read this article because Chase has always been such a good kid. Chase needs to be moved out of the environment. Obviously, whoever is making all his decisions for him is not making the RIGHT choices and thus, keeps making the same mistakes. Unfortunately, it's his life that is being destroyed. Chase has many different issues going on. Chase seems depressed, sad and searching. He seems to be like a little lost sheet, looking for love. Chase loves God and has a beautiful heart. I have personally seen this kid do things that show me the traits of truly someone like Jesus. He is very loyal and dependable to others, always putting others first, as unfortunately, this has been part of his downfall because he tries to help kids that are all lost/have problems. I know God has a great plan for his life, but the key to getting on that path is for him to get out of the environment, into a new envoronment where he can get the proper and appropiate help he needs and deserves. He yearns for love and I personally know one of the reasons he does drugs is because he is looking for love. Chase is a kid who has alot of potential and if placed in the RIGHT environment, he can MOVE FORWARD to the great plan I KNOW God has in store for him. So many problems overpowering him- now responsible for a baby/overwhelming responsibility. I would strongly encourage anyone who knows Chase at all, to be praying for him to our precious Lord and to remain hopeful, never giving up on him. IT'S A LIFE- DONT GIVE UP. - Mr. James T.

BILLY- I know Chase and have known him for along time. He has a graet heart and a good head on his shoulders. He is a hard worker and ive worked with him alot in the past mowing yards and cleaning houses. His problem is the fools he hangs around. I know he loves God. he took me to church 2 months ago for a few times and got me saved. i love him for that always. chase always told me he needs to get away from his parents and in a new environment so he can get help for his anger.PEACE OUT AND PRAY FOR CHASE !

Chase has awesome parents who have raised him with godly principles. He loves his parents. The world did not put in him the heart he has his parents did. HIs parents have helped many young kids and are True Christ followers. If everyone had parents like Chase this would be a better world. Chase needs to get the heck out of Crosby there are people that has set him up to fail, he just could not see cause his heart is so trusting, he always tries to see the best in people. If only there were more people like Chase, the world would be a better place... This dude is awesome.. God has a big plan for him. PRAY FOR CHASE.......

Seems to me like the people who are "setting him up to fail" Linda are HIS PARENTS by not getting this guy the help he needs. if he has loing caring parentsthey would have already done this....Also if his parents have "helped many young people" WHY ON EARTH HAVENT THEY HELPED THIER OWN SON???? seems to me these people have PROBLEMS. Im sure he has a good heart but a good heart doesnt always keep you outta trouble obviously, someone needs to get involved asap because these parents apparently don't know what their doing. I pray chase gets out of the enviorment and betters him self for he and his baby girl. and Purhaps these parents needs life coaching or counciling of some sort, ill be praying God opens their eyes as well. This is nothing to look over or ignore this is about a young man, a baby girl and maybe this babys mother's LIFE and future at stake. People need to stop blaming chases circle of friends because he CHOOSES to hang around those people! He needs an overhauling change in his life...his situation is sad.

This family has fought hard and long to get their son help. Try getting caught up in the legal system month after month. You have no freedom to make your choice. I personally know this family they have fought to get him to where he wants and they want to him to go.. to better his life.. Dont be so critical to judge when you have no idea. Its called the government, money and power. Join in with this family in prayer like many are doing to stop the legal system from taking the youth. This kid has potential. I have never seen a family that has fought so hard to get him to a faith-based program in which he has pleaded to go.

I dont know: Parents who post bond for their kid who gets right back into trouble and continues to build a case against himself, putting himself and others in danger or not very bright. Especially if they witnessed everything that the article mentions. Can you imagine the thousands of dollars spent on lawyers and bail for this kid? What if these same thousands had been spent on a rehab center? A faith-based long term program that can give him the life skills he needs to take care of his responsibilities. He obviously has NOT gotten these at home. Bail out the first time, sure....multiple times? Not very bright. Someone is clueless in that home. This kid seems to be acting out in anger and has been for a long time. The question is: to whom is this anger directed? I would guess someone in the family.This kid seems to have some type of delusional psychosis going on. Why, if these parents are so great, have they not recognized this and put him into a facility that can bring this under control.This young man has a kid...out of wedlock? If these parents are godly parents as "Linda" claims, why have they not coached this young man on how to get a steady job, tak care of the responsibilities that come with producing a baby. Some of you people are acting like Chase is a victim. The REAL victim is the baby that is not being taken care of because daddy cannot stay out of trouble.The other victime is the young lady who obviously made a BAD judgment call in getting hooked up with this kid and now has to raise a baby on her own.The bottom line is that this kid is going through what he is going through due to his OWN decisions and choices. It seems from the article that he has people trying to guide him and encourage him. Despite this, he continues to get into trouble and it seems to be escalating.If this kid does not wind up in jail for a long time, he needs to go immediatey into a program, and obviously get away from the immediate influences and environment he has been in thus far. With all the people blaming everyone else except chase for his consequences, it is clear that Chase's negative behavior is being reinforced. Who does he live with???? Wow.All people...even the most troubled can change. Chase can change. But if he goes right back into the home environment and circle of people he has been in....expect the same ol cycle. Pity.

Everyone has always got to make fun of the kids who's parents don't pay attention. First of all its not right to call people trash just because they come from a lower income family, you snot! Second its pretty obvious the kid needs some help. Third he is a kid.. probably emotionally disturbed and has problem you cant even begin to understand. Dont act like you know people when you have no idea. Some kids get in trouble many times before they become productive member of society. I seem to remember a certain president who admitted to smoking weed. As long as he gets his stuff together this can all be deamed dumb troubled kid stuff.

BlahBlah: My thoughts exactly. There is something about this kid that seems redeemable, but he really needs to get his crap together pronto.

I didn't know there was an affluent area of Crosby. What's the definition of an affluent area? Both parents have their GED's, Momma's the assistant manager at Dairy Freeze and Dad's working full service at the gas station.

There are many successful individuals with a GED. Only someone with no integrity would make such a STUPID comment.
