Police say a Scottsdale man got hammered on liquor and beer Saturday afternoon, sexually assaulted his own wife, verbally abused his nephew and daughters, and then tried to stage a fight between a chihuahua and a pit bull.

When the two pooches didn't fight, 48-year-old David Shelburg Jr. slammed their heads together so hard that family members could hear the dogs yelp from outside the house.

According to court records obtained by New Times, police were called to the home Shelburg shares with his wife, nephew, and two daughters about 8 p.m. Saturday.

Family members told police that Shelburg drank about six beers and several shots of liquor throughout the afternoon. About 6 p.m., Shelburg's wife started making dinner. Apparently in the mood for for then just food, Shelburg walked up behind her and started fondling her.

Shelburg's wife wasn't havin' it -- she asked him repeatedly to stop, but he refused.

Shelburg's nephew, recognizing his aunt wasn't interest in the sexual advances, told Shelburg to stop -- which he did, but only long enough to yell at his nephew and push him to the ground.

Shelburg's daughters -- and one of his daughters' boyfriends -- heard the commotion from outside and entered the house to see what was going on. Shelburg then attacked the boyfriend, too.

The daughters then ran outside to get away from their drunken father, as Shelburg followed his wife into a bedroom, where she'd gone to escape her husband's belligerence.

Shelburg sat down on the bed, and after yelling and screaming a little more, he grabbed the family's two dogs -- a pit bull and a chuhuahua -- and tried to get them to fight. When they didn't fight, Shelburg smashed their heads together causing both dogs to yelp in pain.

Shelburg's wife again retreated to the kitchen, where her husband continued to attack her sexually. After more arguing, one of the family members called Shelburg's parents, who rushed over to the house.

Shelburg's father, David Shelburg Sr., arrived at the house and immediately started yelling at Shelburg's wife. He went further and started yelling at Shelburg's nephew -- who'd tried several times to intervene -- calling him a "queer."

As the drunken rampage continued, Shelburg's wife called police.

Police showed up to find crying family members and a drunken Shelburg, who tried to leave the property against cops' orders, and ultimately had to be taken to the ground before police could get him into handcuffs.

Shelburg was booked on one count each of the following: sexual abuse, cruelty to animals, failure to obey a police officer. He was also booked on three counts of assault and five counts of disorderly conduct.

Insixteen twenty-one, a big  celebration ofbarbourjacket took place at Plymouth Colony in what is now the state of Massachusetts.  European settlers known as the barbour  jackets were celebrating theirautumn harvest after a winter of struggle.

  Other colonists held earlier  ceremonies of thanks. But the Pilgrims'three-day feast is often called the nation's first barbour  outlet Thanksgiving. PresidentAbraham Lincoln declared a national holiday in eighteen sixty-three during the Civil War.

  Today families and friends  gather on the fourth Thursday in November.And, thanks to the barbour quiltedjacket United States  CensusBureau, here are some facts about where their Thanksgiving meal comes  from.

  The main dish is traditionally  a turkey. About two-thirds of the nation'sturkeys are produced in Minnesota  and five other quilted  barbour jacket states. Producersare expected to raise two hundred forty-eight million birds this year, two percent more than lastyear.

  Popular side dishes include  cranberries and sweet potatoes. Last year North Carolina barbour  sale grew more sweet potatoes thanany other state. Wisconsinis expected  to be the top cranberryproducer this year.

First of all, speaking to a lady this way? You're never going to get one. The only thing true about this article was about my grandparents and my father being drunk, and the animal part. That's the only truth. I was there, you weren't. You don't know anything about this. I was sent this article, I didn't look it up. I'm not dumb, actually. I just know exactly what happened, unlike you fucking idiots pretending like you were there, pretending like you know what happened, when in reality, you have no fucking idea. I didn't expect NO ONE to comment, I just expected people with a little more common sense and respect to comment. Unlike you, my parents taught me well. I know the way my father is, and I don't expect to end up like him. In fact, I know I won't. I have my plans already made for myself. 

 I sincerely hope you learn some fucking respect before you go and start shit about my father again.

Thank you Emily Corbo (born Emily Shelburg) for the putrid comments regarding your father's parents who paid $225,000.00 to pay off the mortgage on the house you live in as well as thousands of dollars they paid for bad bills and all of this is a matter of RECORD!and just prior to this incident, your father's parents also paid hundreds of dollars for utilities that you people could not pay.  Also your grandparents were asked to come to the house and were abused and that is they way your grandparents were paid back for all they have spent and given to you and your disfunctional family.  Also in defense of this incident why would your father not be drinking when your 15 year old sister is living with an 18 year old man without wedlock IN THAT SAME HOUSE!SHAME ON YOU FOREVER!!!

@Emily-Here we go. Dad is NOT a piece of shit, alcoholic, sexual assaulting, dog abusing, bully. It's all a lie, the police trumped up the charges, no one heard the dogs yelp, he DID not attack anyone who intervened and everyone's just out to make your father and grandfather look like inbred, white trash. Right? I sincerely hope your mother is smarter than you are and dumps his sorry ass. Don't want people making comments about daddy? Simple. Make sure he's not a prime example why retroactive abortion should be legal, do not be stupid and behave in a manner that gets you on the Internet showcasing what a dumbfuck you are and lastly, don't look up the articles about him and expect no one to comment.

I would like to introduce Shelburg's head to a block wall and see if he likes it any more than his dogs enjoyed having their heads smashed together.

I hope Phoenix has good abuse-of-animal laws - throw the book at this delinquent and lock him away.

Hope someone in the pokey slams his freaken head into a brick wall about 45 times. Freaken moron. Apparently even alcohol doesn't make him a man, pretty bad when the little man has to pick on helpless animals.

With the father's attitude, I can see where he gets his propensity for such behavior. Which is no excuse whatsoever for the behavior. Jail is where he needs to be.

Moron! hope the wife and dogs are ok. Let him see what it is like in jail as far as sexual assault is concerned

This is screaming for a petition to be made for a harsh sentence! because most likely he will only receive a slap on the wrist! I pray the wife and kids get counselling so they can stop the cycle of abuse, and just reading this story I doubt it was the first instance. Also I pray to God that the dog's were removed from that home, for their own safety!

I hope he meets BUBBA in jail and has his f**king throat slit. Mrs.Shelburg-let his rotten corpse rot in jail and DO NOT ACCEPT HIM BACK IN THE HOUSE! IT WILL GET WORSE! HE WILL KILL SOMEONE IF YOU BOND HIM OUT OR YOU ACCEPT HIM BACK-GUARANTEED! HE is a danger to society, you, your children and those innocent animals. Let his evil a** die in jail! DO NOT ENABLE HIM!

Shelburg Sr. sounds like a huge a-hole and if you Google him, he sounds like a scam artist selling fictitious future car dealerships selling Chinese cars that may or may not come to the states.  Wow I just love how you the younger Shelburg followed in his daddy's foots by becoming an extreme Douche Bag!

["Shelburg's father, David Shelburg Sr., arrived at the house and immediately started yelling at Shelburg's wife. He went further and started yelling at Shelburg's nephew -- who'd tried several times to intervene -- calling him a "queer."]

Sounds like the fruit didn't fall from the tree in this case.

This sounds like a classic case of "liquid dumbass", which is the root cause for 99.9% of domestic abuse and violence, in my experience.

I wouldnt say 99.9% there is a small percentage of men who are just assholes and don't need to be drunk to beat their wives, or rape them, or abuse them.

 This guy is more proof to never trust a clean cut short haired male. they use that clean cut look to hide the evil that lurks deep down in their souls.

Yes, Jim. Our Maricopa County jails are too crowded with landscapers and candlemakers who MCSO WASTES HUGE AMOUNTS OF RESOURCES to arrest to garner a few tea bagger votes.

of course they are full. They are full of the poor people, the people who they lose the paperwork for, and the people that get arrested for being here "illegally"
