Lewis Scholten Jr.: Trailer Park Party King, Awesome Facebooker Busted for Murder

Lewis Scholten Jr. has an absolutely rocking FB page
A trailer park stabbing just off Rockport's Monkey Drive has led one man to the cemetery and another to the Aransas County Detention Center.

According to KRIS-TV, early Monday morning 26-year-old Matthew Chipps went to the home of 42-year-old Lewis Scholten Jr and an argument broke out. According to a witness quoted in court documents, Scholten accused Chipps of stealing from him, and Chipps pulled a gun. The witness said she went inside and then heard something that sounded like someone getting hit.

A few hours later, Chipps's body was found in front of a Monkey Road mechanic shop. He'd been stabbed once in the neck, and had left a trail of blood from Scholten's driveway to the spot where he breathed his last.

Scholten went on the lam in a green Saturn and was apprehended the next day by the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force as he was walking out of a smoke shop in Rockport. In his possession was a three-inch switchblade.

One of Scholten's neighbors told KRIS-TV that there was frequent "activity" around his home and that they believed much of it was drug-related. A stolen car was reportedly found on the premises.

And if the "Good Times" photo album on Scholten's rollicking Facebook page is to be believed, there was plenty of, shall we say, roistering going on there. It's a masterpiece of Rockport-style bacchanalia, one depraved tableau after another of inked and pierced party girls, piratical-looking dudes and a huge redfish or two. There's merry blond "Switchblade Shelby" holding aloft a big bottle of Gallo wine; another woman with the words "dick" and "head" tattooed on her fingers, and burly Scholten himself, showing off a torso stained with blue-ink images of every monster Hell has ever known. And the cover shot is over a shapely female derriere with the word "Lewis" scripted just above the crack.

Scholten's likes include the film he called "Harlydavidson and the Marbro Man" and "acting goffy," "drinking beer" and "chasing women," but most of those entertainment options are now off the table, at least for the time being. This Toulouse-Lautrec of Rockport debauchery stands accused of murder and is being held on $500,000 bond.

The Houston Press and John Lomax make the depressing news of today a little entertaining.  As for the family and other acquaintances of this guy, how are these comments (as outrageous as they can be) any different than what was posted on his facebook?  His facebook page is (or was) not set to "private", nor were his photos.  I could look through all the albums freely.  Once you put something out there on the internet, you think you can take it back...but, you can't.  It's like reading twitter...the shit people put out there is astounding to me.  So, we all could see the pics on his facebook, his comments, friends added, etc.  A legal person would be able to say he intended for the public to view it, and if it wasn't his intent, he would've changed the privacy settings.  Anyway, we all get that typing in CAPS = mad.  But, the poor grammar and spelling, along with really bad punctuation is not getting your point across.  It shows that perhaps, you'll always be at the trailer park, getting tats and partying.  There seems to be no logical argument to convince educated people that this killing was justified.  It's logical that neither man was up to no good, armed or unarmed.  Clearly, laws were being broken before the fisticuffs and weapons were drawn.  PS. Loved the writing, John. You sir, do not suck.

I must say this was one of the most entertaining group of comments I've read in a while. Good times...

 When did I bring the kids into it? And did I not present a scenario wherein Mr Scholten could claim self-defense? And how on Earth could this article be of the slightest use to Mr Scholten's attorney?

John Nova Lomax Sucks!
John Nova Lomax Sucks!

 I find names of people SUPPOSED to be guilty, WITHOUT A TRIAL AND A VERDICT, WITHOUT BEING PROVEN GUiLTY WITHOUT REASONABLE DOUBT. No,  the so called journalist takes care to make their names public so they should forever be remembered,.He judges and gives the verdict. Shameful.Prejudicial.In fact a good point for the deffense , for you have already condemned those people and influenced the jury's opinion, IF they ever go to trial.Good job! I shall see that the defense have this article, for its very,very useful!!   What you have published its a piece of  trash that should have never brought innocent kids or innocent people into. The fact that it has done both, makes you the lowest of them all Mr. John Nova Lomax.  Best of wishes to  the scholten daughters in getting through this time of hurt.

This journalist should be fired and the editor demoted (or vice versa). Such ignorance should not be permitted - not even in a provincial paper.

Your  article is offensive in its stupidity, shows you up as a moron and your journalistic skills unbelievably poor. Before you write anything else, do your homework first!!! .

Oh yeah, we covered that. Later in the week a guy in Lufkin got arrested and had "The Devil" tattooed across his forehead.

Oh my bad... thought you were a puppet because someone obviously pulled too hard on that tampon string of yours and got it all tangled up around your neck and limbs, it certainly seems to have cut off blood circulation to your brain.

It's not that I have any problem with tats and piercings. It's allowing your ass-tat of an accused murderer's name to be displayed publicly on that same ex-con's FB page, and having the word "Dickhead" inked across your fingers, that I find a little unusual, even for Facebook.  PS: You'd think that in the course of attaining at least one of those self-claimed three degrees, someone might have taught you how to put a sentence together and the proper usage of "You're" and "Your."

Yeah bitch, I've heard of it...so why did he run, if it was self defense, I read the story and not just from here...(sorry John, no disrespect), I would think he would have called the cops immediately after the incident, what he didn't want cops snooping around?

Perhaps the "ladies" should A.) not have criminals names tattooed to their asses, B.) not allow pictures to be taken of said works of art (note sarcasm) & C.) not allow any pictures of such out of their possession to be posted to Facebook & other news sources. The only person that should be sued over these pics is the genius that is the source of this hilarity.

For 1 he is not my bf, for 2, bitch you ever heard of self defense?And if you knew how to read the paper says there was a gun pulled by the other guy. So why don't you worry about your own life. You know nothing about me so back off me.

He put it on his Facebook, he left in public, and she didn't ask for him to take it down. I can only assume that she wants the world to see it.
