    RICHLAND HILLS, Texas (AP) - A North Texas man carved a pentagram into his 6-year-old son's back Wednesday, telling a 911 dispatcher that he did it because "it's a holy day," Richland Hills police said.

    Brent Troy Bartel was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and was jailed in lieu of $500,000 bond, said Richland Hills police Sgt. Nathan Stringer. He did not yet have an attorney, Stringer said.

    Bartel called 911 early Wednesday morning, and in a matter-of-fact tone, said, "I shed some innocent blood," according to a copy of the recording released by police. After the dispatcher said, "I'm sorry?" he repeated those words, then said he inscribed a pentagram on his son. When the dispatcher asked why, Bartel said "because it's a holy day" before hanging up.

    He's obviously either mentally ill, or on drugs.

    Oh, that poor child. I hope he's not left with scars. And if he is, I'd really hope some medical professionals would volunteer their expertise to remove them.

    I hope he goes to prison and gets his very own tattoo that says I abused my 6 year old child by carving a pentagram on his back and I'm a fool. Then gets caught and does more time for getting a tattoo in prison.

    Police arrested Bartel early Wednesday at the house in the older, middle-class neighborhood. Officers found the 6-year-old boy -- described by a neighbor as a "cute little booger" -- wearing pajama pants without a shirt.

    The mother had fled to a neighboring home to get help.

    "There was a large pentagram carved into his back which covered the majority of his back," Richland Hills police Sgt. Nathan Stringer said in a news release. "The child was .. shivering in the cold so officers wrapped him in a jacket."
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    A 12-year-old boy who goes by the house every day as he walks home from school said he heard shouting in the house about three weeks ago.

    "I heard the mom yell 'leave him alone, he's just a little boy,' " said the 12-year-old boy, who the Star-Telegram is not identifying. "The man was yelling and the boy was crying."

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Bartel has also been in trouble before outside of Texas.

    In 2007, after being found guilty for a turning violation in Lancaster County, Pa., Bartel walked across the courtroom toward Judge Dennis Reinaker and put down his driver's license on the bench, according to an article in the Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era.

    "I officially resign as a truck driver," Bartel said, according to the newspaper, "and now I'm about to have a little fun."

    Bartel was told to step away from the judge and he then walked toward the police officer who had given him the ticket and attempted to punch him.

    Bartel was wrestled to the floor by several law enforcement officers and struggled violently before being handcuffed, according to the newspaper.

    "It was unbelievable," Reinaker said.

    His mother said her son, who worked as a long-haul trucker, was frustrated by a judicial system he judged unfair and that he served six months in jail for his actions.

    Good Grief!!! From another article-

    RICHLAND HILLS -- The father and son were alone in the house when police arrived, a freshly carved pentagram covering the boy's back.

    Blood, apparently from the child's wounds, had been smeared on the sides and the top of the home's door frame -- similar to biblical accounts of Passover.
