Daniel PirtleAnchorage, Alaska – Police say Daniel Pirtle, a double amputee with metal, prosthetic legs, went into a Walmart and shot a manager after getting into an argument over Pirtle’s unrestrained dog.

Police say that on Saturday afternoon, 45-year-old Daniel Pirtle went inside a  crowded Walmart in a motorized cart, accompanied by his unrestrained service dog. Pirtle got into an argument with the store’s assistant manager, 33-year-old Jason Mahi, after Mahi asked Pirtle to restrain his dog.

The argument escalated to the point that Pirtle pulled out a gun and shot Mahi in the stomach. Afterwards, Pirtle navigated the motorized cart through the aisles, making his way towards the store’s entrance. He was apprehended by police near the front of the store where officers took a handgun from him, as well as his legs, before placing him in a police car.

Witnesses said Mahi was conscious after being shot. “He said, ‘I can’t feel my feet.’ He just kept talking about his kids,” said a patron who rushed to Mahi’s aid. “‘My kids, my son,’ that’s basically all he said. Everyone else tried to keep him awake.”

Mahi was rushed to the hospital and underwent surgery. On Monday, he was listed in critical but stable condition at Providence Hospital. Daniel Pirtle was taken to the Anchorage jail and has been charged with first-degree assault and fourth-degree weapons misconduct. He’s being held on $50,000 cash-only bail.

Susi Griffith, a longtime friend of Pirtle’s said he went everywhere with his 5-month-old dog, Wookie, and his guns. She said he’d shown signs of instability, but seemed to be adjusting after his legs were removed because of  his diabeetus.

  • The people of Walmart just got a whole helluva lot scarier.

  • I do think Susan you just won the internet today with that statement.

  • sheevaa

    Reading…”Oh, well damn that’s shitty for the manager”…Diabeetus…Bwa ahhaha!

  • And he’s not being charged with attempted murder because…?

  • Kasie K

    Oh crap I clicked on the diabeetus link and now I can’t stop laughing, damn you!

    5 month old ‘service dog’… it’s a pet. A lot of people get a prescription for one, get any random dog, get a bullshit certification for it from the internet so they can take it everywhere, and never actually train it at all, making everything harder for people with real service animals.

  • edward macaskill

    My point exactly,like I would let a 3 year old electrician wire my home.

  • This is true…..Real service dogs go through extensive training for about 2 years and cost the same as a fully loaded car, I checked on them because I was going to get one for my autistic son…..however I need to pay my car off first, lol

  • Buffettgirl

    Looks like we’ve found the Walrus Man…

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Yeah, but I have his certification record right here! I got it off the internet and everything!

  • LeaveMeBe

    Between the “officers took a handgun from him, as well as his legs” and the “diabeetus” remarks, I laughed myself silly. And FFS, please tell me that picture isn’t his FB profile picture or a profile picture on his dating website. *gags*

    Ahhhh, Alaska… where the government uses television and radio ads to remind natives to be kind to the tourists, Sarah Palin can get elected (and re-elected, and re-elected) and the ravens sound like women falling screaming from the upper-story windows of a burning building.

    It’s quite enchanting, really.

  • G.I.R.L.

    Adding to the stereotype of fat, motor cart driving Walmart pigs who see the world through greasy lenses (that are either TOO medicated or not medicated enough). He didn’t even have the decency to pack his rocket-legs to flee the scene; the nerve of some people. I tire of this anarchic idiocy; amuse yourselves.

  • newstarshipsmell

    LOL! I’m reading through the comments and wondering why no one’s focused on his shirtless mug shot.

  • Andyman

    Hell yeah Morbid! I loves me some Wilford Brimley Remix… Diabeetus… Diabeetus.. What’s with the charges on this guy though? First-degree assault and fourth-degree weapons misconduct seems a tad light to me.

    Keep it motherfuckin classay, WalMart.

  • JGo555

    Exactly what I thought. Don’t they take about 2yrs to get certified, especially because puppyhood is over and the “stupidity” of being young leaves.

  • EveryVillainIsLemons

    The trauma of it is probably giving them amnesia.

    As for me, I want to hold a fundraiser to buy him a bra.

  • Dammit, Dan, put those bitchtits away. They are so sad…

  • Why isn’t he being charged with attempted murder???

  • 5 month old service dog?

  • JustBrowsingLife

    I have some used maternity bras he could use.

  • Scretch

    Just think, if the cops would have taken his arms too they wouldn’t have had to cuff him. 😉
