Lame New Vigilante Patrols LOP

D-Man on duty protecting Round Table Pizza.

As many know, the crime rate in Lake of the Pines is skyrocketing due to the new, less-than-stellar law enforcer.
Today, the backstory of this mighty disaster comes to light.
LOP’s new vigilante even has a lame name. He calls himself ‘D-Man’ popped up out of the blue, a few months ago at the stop light near Ace Hardware.
At first, he was helping old ladies cross the street and getting cats out of trees, but he’s taken it to the next level, and it’s started a controversy throughout Grass Valley.
“Oh him? Yeah. D-Man has become one of our regulars over the past few weeks, he’s a sucker for the garlic twists,” said Dane Stahl, an employee at Round Table and student at Bear River High School. “But uh, he’s getting more and more comfortable around the store and his robbery busts. He tackled this old man the other day when he was picking up pizzas for his wife. He thought he was stealing them, but it was just under his wife’s name.”
The security cameras caught D-Man attempting to beat up the team member for littering, but local authorities said it was a mistake because Stahl was only trying to take out the trash when D-Man confronted him.
To try and contain his territory of defending the neighborhood, GVPD has decided to let D-Man be the sole protector of Lake of the Pines.
But when word got out, a group of adolescent troublemakers started terrorizing the community. D-man is trying his best to fend these perpetrators off, but will he be successful?
During a recent fight, D-Man’s mask was taken and his identity was revealed to be the one and only Mike DeCicco, a teacher at Bear River.
“I don’t know why these people are doing what they are doing, but I know that bullying is not okay, and I’m going to do my damndest to keep it under control,” said D-Man. “Also, and unrelated, but go Broncos.”
He hasn’t spoken on the issue after that occurrence.
His son, Zack DeCicco had some words though.
“He’s probably just going through a midlife crisis. I’m sure this phase will be over soon but I’m hoping he doesn’t get hurt in the process.”
Now the whole town of Grass Valley is waiting to see what happens next in this feud between D-Man and area hoodlums. Updates to come.
