Jacob Bertrand Nailed A Guy

Jacon Bertrand on The Dreamin' Demon

Grand Junction, CO - If you’re gonna work at The Kitchen Center in Grand Junction, Colorado, make a note that the guy with the neck tattoo gets cranky. Jacob Bertrand, 27, was arrested on Tuesday – almost a week after a workplace attack that left the other guy with 20 nail holes and new nose piercing.

On Wednesday, June 4, Bertrand got pissed off at a co-worker. Bertrand chose to act on his annoyance by spraying the guy with flammable lacquer thinner. Then he threw a garbage can at the victim and shot him about twenty times with a nail gun – mostly in the chest, but he also gave the guy a nail piercing to the nose.

Fortunately for the victim, Bertrand wasn’t smoking at the time. That lacquer thinner would have gone up pretty fast. Also fortunately for the victim, most of the assault was captured on store videotape, making charges much easier to file. Why it took a week to arrest Jacob Bertrand I’ve no idea, but whatever, they have him now and he’s not going anywhere for a little while.

Jacob Bertrand is charged with menacing, reckless endangerment and second degree assault. He’s being held at the Mesa County Jail on $25,000 bond. I’d kind of think a nail gun would qualify as a deadly weapon, but the victim’s injuries were apparently not life-threatening. But the victim will forever be That Guy Who Got Shot With A Nail Gun. Imagine explaining that body modification story at parties.

    I saw the headline and I thought, “Oh, dear God. Don’t let this guy have sprayed someone with a nail gun.” Does the inventiveness of perps ever cease?

    He looks like an elf on speed.

    20 times with a nail gun? That sounds like attempted murder to me, unless it was one of those brad nailers. Then that would mostly just hurt.

    Yeah, he is an all around asshole either way. I wonder how tall he is, he does look like an elf. Napoleon complex maybe?

    I’m telling you…We need to create interment camps for people with neck tattoos. We’d see crime plummet.

    I may need to upgrade my neck-tattoo-people taser to one of the tasers with the shooting prongs, so keep me out of nail gun range.

    Let me set this story straight and also add some info. I work at the Kitchen Center and Jake actually was a good guy, though he had a short temper. He had a disagreement with the victim about personal out of work issues. First he threw a trash can, then he grabbed the lacquer thinner and doused the victim. He actually tried to use his lighter to torch the victim but it would not light. Then he grabbed the nail gun and fired 40 times, 20 of the nails hit my co-worker. These nails are used to nail countertops so they are not brad nails. After the nail gun he grabbed my co-worker and hit him, bruising three ribs, spraining his harm, giving him a black eye. The reason why it took over a week to arrest him was because he talked to his parole officer (he already has a record) and they were willing to let him stay on parole. Jake however wanted to go back to prison (yes prison) so he told his parole officer no. They arrested him a week later and now his is serving up to 4 years for aggravated assult.
