Our second candidate for anger-management intervention hails from Boise.

Benjamin R. Miele's saga began Sept. 16 at about 7 p.m. That's when Boise Police received a report of a man with a gun at a Boise Bench home.

The 23-year-old Boisean is accused of using fists and feet to beat an adult female. He then allegedly grabbed a shotgun and fired it into the floor.

Before making his getaway, Miele reportedly used the double-barreled killing machine to threaten two more adults, who had also had the misfortune of making his acquaintance before this run-in.

Miele then allegedly stole a car and fled the scene.

He hit the freeway and hightailed it out of town. But he didn't get far. A growling stomach evidently forced a pit stop only 70 miles away. State Police troopers caught up with the suspect while he enjoyed a quiet meal at a Hammett restaurant.

Along with a bill for the grub, Miele was handed his very own laundry list of future-limiting charges, including a misdemeanor violation of a no-contact order taken out by one of his victims.

Also pending: two counts of aggravated assault, as well as domestic battery and grand theft charges--all felonies, and another misdemeanor for an unrelated probation violation.
