Anthony Parrinello -- the man accused of running over and killing a man after an argument at a North Phoenix elementary school -- had a few run-ins with law enforcement before his arrest on a murder charge Monday.

Parrinello, 31, is accused of running over 42-year-old Carmelo D'Alessandro on Monday, after the men decided to settle the argument by brawling at the Walmart.

Parrinello headed to the store, but D'Alessandro decided just to walk home from the Canyon Springs School, near Anthem.

Parrinello waited at the Walmart for a bit, before going on a drive and looking for D'Alessandro. When he found D'Alessandro still walking toward his house, Parrinello ran him over, according to the documents.

Phoenix police Sergeant Trent Crump told New Times yesterday that it's still unknown what the argument was all about, but both men had kids at the school. According to the school's calendar, Monday was also the first day of school for the youngsters.

Court documents submitted by police in this case show Parrinello's ex-wife has an order of protection against him, and other court records show that Parrinello has had to deal with police before.

Parrinello was popped for theft in Glendale in 2007, and pleaded guilty under a plea agreement a few weeks after his arrest.

Not even a month after his guilty plea, Parrinello was arrested on an aggravated-assault charge. That charge was dismissed by the county attorney's office in early 2008.

Parrinello also faced a charge in Phoenix Municipal Court in 2005 for an assault that resulted in an injury, but that charge was dismissed by the court.

He's also had a few traffic violations, including driving with a suspended license plate and no registration, according to the records.

In this case, after allegedly running over D'Alessandro, police found Parrinello and his car at a nearby park where Parrinello worked. Court documents list Parrinello's employer simply as "Anthem."

Parrinello had cleaned "biological evidence" off the hood of his car, but after a search warrant was obtained, police found blood and other "biological evidence" underneath the vehicle, according to court documents.

Parrinello admitted being in an argument with D'Alessandro, but denied running him over, police say. Again, it's not yet known what the argument was about, but Sergeant Crump said yesterday that the men did know each other.

Parrinello faces one count of second-degree murder and is being held on $1 million bond.

I have know this piece of shit sense he was 13 and he has always been a trouble maker, he really thinks he is above the law, he has several children by several different mothers and he has never taken care of any of them each time he was found and ordered to pay his child support he left the job so they wouldn't get money for those children. He has been arrested for several different crimes and low and behold he always skates right through he has been held accountable for any of his crimes, It is time for this low life to get what as been coming to him for many years, The courts will be doing a great injustice If they let him off of this murder charge. He is a very convincing lier and always has been. He needs to be held accountable for all of his crimes sense he has been getting away with for years PLAN AN SIMPLE. Please do what is right for society  and for the sake of all of his family and children over the years

"ex-wife has an order of protection against him"

"theft in Glendale in 2007"

"aggravated-assault charge"

"assault that resulted in an injury"

"driving with a suspended license plate and no registration"

 

After a person attracts this much attention, could it be reasonably suspected that he has a problem living by the normally accepted rules of polite society?

 

It also seems to me that the state legislators would be interested in coming up with a plan to identify such individuals and "get them help" before the state is faced with housing these individuals for long sentences in the state prisons at around $50,000 per year per criminal, or spending millions to execute one.

Anthony Parrinello if it's proven you killed my friend in court with your car you suck and should rot in prison

So it looks like this guy was a real POS with a long history of sucker-punching people and pushing elderly women.  He should have already been in jail for aggravated assault but the cowardly/corrupt/incompetent DA dropped charges.  Also, the murderer and the victim apparently knew each other and were friends at one point.  This video explains things in better detail:

With the rash of foreclosures in recent years Anthem has turned into a melting pot of the classes. Those who moved there  to get away from the "white trash", now find them scattered throughout their neighborhood.

Assuming at some point this guy is convicted and imprisoned I imagine he will have plenty of opportunity to act out his aggressions. But, he might find he's not nearly as tough as he thinks he is.

 

Sad stuff. Two kids lost their fathers in one senseless criminal act for much ado about nothing.

why is it easier to land a non-violent drug user in jail then it is someone who is violent?

 

lock the violent people up, there're no good for society.

 @maxonepercent thanks for posting the video. Like I said the man is a thug, and a piece of shit.

 @freefromtheman so what? Anthem never was classy. It's always been the same shit.. The people there act like they are the best people ever, but they are just as bad or worse than most of the rest of the state.

 @Tommy_Collins it's sad but ONE of the fathers should have thought before he acted like a thug (which is all too common in AZ)

 

To ALL:

ANY of you fuckers here understand pacifism? It works wonders, no matter how annoying the old right-wing fucktards that threaten you are. Oh sure they can call me a pussy if they want, but who's the bigger man?

 @teknik agreed. This guy who had a bunch of assaults and shit on his record that were dismissed needs to be in prison. A person who smokes a little pot doesn't belong in PRISON!

 @ptcgaz The crime took place in the City of Phoenix.

Very sad for the victim's kids on the first day of school.

 @marcy so what? It's still Anthem, the capitalistic bullshit happy world of a master planed piece of shit housing tract.

It still isn't classy. In fact it's not classy at all. Why should I give two shits that part of Anthem was annexed by PHX to make more taxes for the city?

 @chadsnow lol in YC we brawl at the bars if we brawl at all.  I don't I am a pacifist. Somehow I managed to have a bunch of people wanting to beat my ass but they are actually pussies.

 @StegsNewton really you are calling me a faggot because I am a pacifist? Are you really that fucking stupid?
