Police: Grown Man Steals Girl's Bike, Gets Drunk, Rides Off in Search of Cars to Burglarize

Gabriel Guzman and a Kent Taboo girls' bike, much like the stolen one he was riding last night.
There was something about the man that seemed suspicious. Maybe it was that he was riding a bike through an otherwise slumbering West Dallas neighborhood at 2 a.m. on a Monday. Maybe it was the way he paused to glance into the cars parked along the street. Maybe a streetlight illuminated one of the prison tattoos on his face and neck. Or maybe it was that the bicycle he was riding was clearly designed for a young girl.

Whichever red flag it was that caught neighbors' eyes, they called police, who pulled the man over in the 3000 block of Clymer Street. Gabriel Guzman was clearly drunk, according to an incident report, and he told them he was going to a nearby park to blow off steam after arguing with his mother. Guzman is 32 years old.

Guzman didn't know whom the bike belonged to. A family member had stolen it earlier in the day and brought it to their house, where Guzman decided it would be a more efficient way to get to the park.

Officers seized the bicycle, which they list as a girls' Kent Taboo (pictured). Guzman, who has spent at least two-and-a-half years in prison on a pair of family violence convictions and a drug possession charge, was arrested for public intoxication.

Where's video of this when we need it? You're telling me all these people that film street fights with their phones couldn't have gotten this? Disappointed.

Once again, I am shocked to see a neck tattoo in a mug shot.

No mug-shot neck towel?

America will be so much more progressive when it becomes more like a combination of Mexico and Africa.

Dallas will never be world-class until they cover those necks.

@ruddski I find it ironic they do this given the whole point of having a mugshot is to show identifiable features.
