Phoenix resident Hector Olalde does not like being called gay.

He dislikes the accusation so much that police say Olalde, 28, pulled a gun on his girlfriend, and fired that gun all around his neighborhood after she called him gay, according to court documents obtained by New Times.

Olalde and his girlfriend were arguing at their home, near 48th Avenue and Baseline Road, and when his girlfriend wouldn't give him his keys to drive away, he pulled a .45-caliber handgun on her, court documents state.

According to a police probable-cause statement, "This resulted after a verbal argument between the two after she called him 'gay' for hanging out with all male friends."

Olalde got the keys to his car, and fired a shot into the air as he walked toward the car.

Once he started driving away, he kept shooting from his vehicle around the neighborhood, according to the documents.

Police were called, and an officer spotted Olalde's car a few miles away, near 35th and Southern avenues.

Olalde was driving on a suspended license, so his car was towed as police booked him into jail on charges of aggravated assault and discharging a firearm within city limits.

He's too ugly to be gay. I wouldn't let him anywhere near my favorite gloryhole

It takes one to know one and he sure looks gay to me!

Being forced into an underground subculture has degraded the past few generations of a people who used to be proud of their "machismo" to the point that the men don't feel safe or powerful without a gang backing them up.  It's difficult for some to reconcile the image with the reality.   I guess that's even harder if you're gay.

Gay and just a tad bit freaking stupid.  The guys in jail will like him just fine.  He'll be able to shoot off his gun as much as he wants as long as he helps his new friends shoot off theirs.  


Based on your responses on this site, we figured you were a joto


You should write him, he's your type and kind


@WhoKnows Jaffy is at the discharge door  of the 4th Ave jail hoping to make a hook up.
