  1. It stated in the article that my brother said he beat his pregnant wife. That is totally false. Was there an altercation, yes. Did he beat her, NO, he didn't hit or perform any sort of violent act on her. He tried to calm her down, he tried to defend himself. This is a case that is under investigation. It's hard enough that his life has just been turned upside because of this, but for you to publish this untrue news is just kicking someone who is already down on the ground. Have some consideration for my brother and our family. Do you think his daughter wants to have her friends read about this and hear it in school. Know your facts before you print them. He did not beat or hit or whichever term you would use his wife. There is so much to this story that you have NO clue about.

  2. Hi Samantha. Were you there when it happened?

  3. Lol Samantha, he not only beat his wife but has several other allegations against him, including past charges of beating his daughter! he is scum!

  4. I was not there, but our parents were...
    As far as the anonymous person goes, I know who you are. LOL. There were no charges on that. You wanna go round and round about it, let's go......I don't think that you being so vindictive is going to get you anywhere. Grow up, move on, and invest your time in your own issues, you have PLENTY.

  5. To the person who tried to post... if you want to post your comment you have to resubmit it without the personal information you are sharing about Votta's mother.

    If you want to post about his mother, you will need to prove your identity to me and then post your name with your comment. Otherwise - stick to the subject.

  6. I really hope this guy got what he deserves
