Gatesville Man Endangers Four Children


A man who broke out in rage overnight Friday is behind bars for abandon endangering a child and criminal negligence.

Michael Alan Penno, 29, was arrested on four counts. Gatesville police officers were patrolling Pembrook Court apartments on Old Osage Road.

Authorities noticed some objects laying on the parking lot including a TV, x-box and a gun. Police looked around and saw an apartment door open. After finding no response from calling out numerous times, police entered inside.

According to the police report, there were signs of violence or a struggle such as broken items throughout the house. While walking through, authorities found four children, ranging in age from two to eight-years-old, and Penno in another room sleeping.

Police say he seemed intoxicated and it appeared he had trashed the apartment in rage.

The property manager said this was the first incident she had with the couple.
