Stupid criminal of the day award goes to....dad MATTHEW AYMAMI! Mothers and children are subjected to these violent antics all the time in so-called custody "disputes" (i.e. one-way reigns of terror launched by abusive fathers who don't want to lose their control). Occasionally, you'll see a father stupid enough to show his true colors to the police. But this guy pulls a gun on the County Sheriff--who is also his OWN FATHER. Wrap your head around that!
Seems Mom was able to get a restraining order after this bit of Daddy Drama.'Cause you know that when this sh** happens to a MAN and a COP, it must be real....
Man pleads not guilty to assault, child neglect charges

A 25-year-old Minden man pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges that he pointed a gun at his father during a child custody dispute involving the defendant's 2-year-old son.
Matthew Aymami, whose father is Douglas County Sheriff's Capt. Dave Aymami, pleaded not guilty to assault with a deadly weapon and child abuse or neglect with use of a deadly weapon stemming from the July 12 incident at the Aymami home.
District Judge Dave Gamble set a trial for April 9, after Matthew Aymami's lawyer said he was filing a writ of habeas corpus and requesting a new preliminary hearing.
Attorney Tod Young said the child abuse charge had changed since Aymami was bound over to district court after a preliminary hearing Sept. 9.
Prosecutor Laurie Trotter said Tuesday the child abuse charge had been enhanced, not changed.
“It's not filed as a punitive measure,” she said, citing the “deadly reaction” she said Aymami provoked.
Aymami waived his right to a speedy trial within 60 days.
The child abuse charge states that Matthew Aymami “obtained a loaded .22-caliber rifle and a loaded Kimber .45-caliber handgun and locked himself and the 2-year-old in a bedroom to prevent the child's mother from obtaining court-ordered custody of (the child).”
The criminal complaint says Aymami refused to comply with a request to drop the gun as armed officers entered the room with loaded and drawn weapons.
He struggled against his father and the officers as they attempted to disarm him while holding the child to his body and refusing to release him when the officers tried to move the 2-year-old to safety, according to the complaint.
No one was injured in the incident. Aymami is out of custody and forbidden to see the child or ex-wife who obtained a restraining order.
Gamble asked Young to file his motion by Oct. 25 and gave the district attorney's office until Nov. 18 to respond.
He set a Nov. 22 hearing on the motion.
