Yet another sick f*** of a father. Notice that dad BRIAN KOLESAR shot the mother of his newborn daughter AND her father. Dad had a long history of domestic violence and orders of protection filed against him. And he's suspected of trying to poison their 6-week-old daughter.
But even thought this sick f*** murdered another father, rest assured that somewhere, somehow, there's a bunch of fathers rights people honoring this @$$hole as their latest Martyr to the Cause....
Lot of official screw-ups here.
Why was a guy this messed up able to get a concealed carry weapons permit?
Why were the police reluctant to take him in as a danger to himself and others?He'd previously threatened to kill Mom and the child before.

4 p.m.: Fairfield County deputy calls to check on Arnold, who says everything is OK, and that they are at the storage unit.

LANCASTER — Seven months ago, Julie Arnold sought a protection order against her boyfriend, Brian Scott Kolesar.
Last week, she reported she thought he’d put laundry detergent in their child’s baby bottle.
And Monday, she decided to throw him out, for good — but he wouldn’t go. Only after hours of police intervention did he decide to leave.
But he didn’t.
Just hours later, police say Kolesar, 33, shot Arnold, 35, and her father, Charles W. Cheadle, 75, in a car along Ohio 16, near Pataskala in Licking County, before turning the gun on himself.
Kolesar and Cheadle died at the scene, while Arnold is recovering at Grant Medical Center in Columbus with two gunshot wounds to her chest.
The couple’s troubled relationship is well-documented; Arnold, in her filing for a protection order in March, said Kolesar threatened her life, the life of their child and more. A month later, however, she asked that the order be rescinded because Kolesar was in a treatment facility in Florida. Sometime between then and this past week, he apparently moved into the house Arnold and Cheadle shared.
The trouble drew police attention again this past week, with the report of the detergent in the baby formula. Fairfield County Sheriff Dave Phalen said deputies still were investigating that claim when Monday’s call came in.
“That investigation was still ongoing when we got a call around 12:30 p.m. Monday from a relative about a problem at the house,” Phalen said.
Phalen said deputies were at the home for about two hours and had contacted Kolesar’s psychiatrist about his condition when Kolesar agreed to leave the home voluntarily.
“Our hands are kind of tied at that point,” Phalen said. “We couldn’t take him involuntarily to a psychiatric unit unless he appeared to be a danger to himself or someone else. He had agreed to leave if he could get some stuff from his storage unit.”
Arnold, Cheadle and Kolesar then went to Licking County to get those things.
“One of our deputies called Julie at around 4 p.m., and she said everything was OK. They were near the storage unit,” Phalen said.
Shortly after that call, at around 4:45 p.m. according to the Licking County Sheriff’s Office release, Arnold and her father were shot.
In getting a restraining order in March, Arnold said she had been in a relationship with Kolesar for 18 months, sharing a home together.
“I’m asking for this protection order because I’m afraid if he gets the opportunity to harm me he will,” Arnold said in her petition to the court. “He has threatened the life of our child many times. ... He has threatened to take his own life on several times.”
She said he had alcohol and mental problems in the past and became more violent when he was drinking.
She said he possessed a concealed carry weapons permit, and “I feel he is not stable and could use a weapon at any time.” Kolesar did not have a criminal record in Fairfield County.
She said he had repeatedly threatened her and said he couldn’t leave her, sending pornographic images to her at her work and private cell phones.
“He called me and stated he was watching me and could see what I was doing, and that he hoped my dad would shoot him,” she wrote in her petition. “So I fear him because he is mentally unstable and is capable of doing anything right now. He stated to me he has a gun and is not afraid to use it. I believe him because he is not in his right mind.”
On March 25, the court signed the civil protection order requiring Kolesar to stay at least 500 feet from her, have no contact and not possess, use carry or obtain a deadly weapon.
On April 20, Arnold asked the court to dismiss the protection order, stating Kolesar was in a treatment facility in Florida, according to court documents.
“(Arnold) does not feel (Kolesar) is a threat to her at this time because he is out of state and in a residential treatment program,” the court concluded.
However, all three shared the same home at the time of the shooting. Two guns were found in the car, but only one had been fired, the Licking County Sheriff’s Office reported.
The loss was being felt Tuesday by members of the Cheadle family.
Cheadle was a man who loved working outdoors, growing crops and flowers and watching his children and grandchildren grow.
That’s how Cheadle’s relatives, Glenn and Martha Goldsberry, described him Tuesday.
Cheadle retired from a heavy equipment company based in Columbus and then worked for Eastside Nursery in Groveport.
“He had a green thumb,” Martha Goldsberry said. “I take things in, and they would die. He could take just about anything and make it grow.”
He loved working outdoors, Glenn Goldsberry said.
If you visited him during harvest season, you were going to get a trunk load of vegetables from his garden.
“He’d give you onions, peppers and tomatoes,” Glenn said.
He loved to can his vegetables as well, Glenn said.
It all ended Monday.
“It so sad and should have been prevented,” Martha said.
