Neighbors Go To War Over 4-Year-Old Boy

Neighbors Try To Restrict Boy, Family To Home, Driveway

Lauren Reynolds-10News I-Team Reporter

Spencer Trussell likes to play and ride his bike. “I’m 4 years old,” he said, “and I have a sister named Olivia, and I ride my bike all day long.” He lives in a piece of suburbia that seems picturesque: the Venzano development in San Marcos. His parents, Gary and Marla Trussell, moved the family here five months ago. “I thought it would be good for the children,” Marla Trussell explained.

But instead of being welcomed, the Trussell family has been under attack, they said, by neighbors. The accusations against them have been wild, including that 4-year-old Spencer “might come out with a firearm at anytime.””I thought they had lost their minds,” said Marla Trussell.They are neighbors Sarah Fisher, Danielle Harway and Kelly Plaster. All three filed court papers asking that Spencer, his sister Olivia, and mom and dad be restricted to their own home and driveway.”There was nothing I had done, my husband had done, my daughter had done, or I had done that warranted that response,” said Trussell.

  • .”There was nothing I had done, my husband had done, my daughter had done, or I had done that warranted that response,” said Trussell.

    So I guess it is OK for “dad” to be yelling four lettered obscenities at his neighbors. That surely wouldn’t render any kind of response from totally understanding people. The Sheriff has been dealing with this mess for quite some time. The poor “victims” have turned to the media to slander the names of the real people that are impacted by this behavior. What a shame that the squeaky wheel will continue to cause havoc.

  • Okay Mr. Tough, let’s assume what you say is true. Namely, Gary Trussell overreacted and used swear words, and the media presentation is one-sided.

    Does that justify using the legal system to try and ruin people with restraining orders and trumped-up child endangerment accusations?

    Reasonable people would conclude that the “response” of the people you appear to be defending crossed the line of civilized behavior by a wide margin. Apparently, the judge agrees.

    If the Trussell’s are using the media to slander your friends, why didn’t they defend themselves when the media gave them the opportunity? Is scurrying into the house when a news crew comes around the kind or reaction we expect to see from the falsely accused?

    If they’re media shy, why not release a statement through their attorney? Surely their attorney can access the police reports from all of the past incidents. These would surely support you and your friends cause. Wouldn’t they?

    Kudos to you for attempting to defend the indefensible but if these are your friends, you should rethink your value system.

    PS Why the scare quotes around dad?
