  • I am a Waddy. I am from Brooksville My siblings and I worked to have everything we own we own. No Drugs have ever been in my house or surrounding area. So please don’t drag my last name through the mud. Every family has someone that’s fuck ups the only difference between us and anyone else is that there are a lot of Waddys so please don’t blame roughly 300+ Waddys for about 30 people mishaps. At least we admit to our faults. So I would advice doing more research on the subject maybe talking to some of us before you decide to judge or criticize us. God please bless some of the hateful folk out there.

  • You people are embarrassing yourselves, why attack the Waddys, afterall, he was the individual who got shot and turned his self in. If you’re gonna criticize someone why not the person shooting in public. But most importantly, how many of you Waddy bashing cowards have stepped to any of them and expressed your disgust for them? Afterall, many of you seem to know so much about them, surely their address can be found in all the info some have discovered.

Maybe this incident should be publicated out there and in Ohio. This is why he is voicing his opinion because he doesn’t want his patients to think it is him, lol. Yea maybe he is writing scripts for junior.

  • If there was a way for the police to take a metal detector into the various Waddy’s yards, they’d find drug money buried in coffee cans. Some may be in the plastic containers though. Let the Waddy’s keep talking because so will I.

    • The entire family is nothing but scum bags. Search Waddy at the county jail and the surrounding counties and look what you find. It’s not just one, it is the entire screwed up family who keep producing more. Losers all of them.

  • Notice the original report says he was shot…but “Rushed” to Bayonet Point Hospital.
    WTF? Some emergency….30 minutes away while Brooksville is 5.
    Someone teach these clowns how to shoot…Maybe we can thin them out if they are more successful at killing themselves.

  • Dr. waddy, your comment was absurd. How can you say this Scum Bag is good. Look at his record and history. If your family has Doctors then please let us know so we can make sure no one goes to any of you. As far as the other so called model citizens in your family, who gives a CRAP! If James was such a good boy why is he all over the news media? You Doctor should not brag that you are related to this piece of crap. You would have been better off keeping your mouth shut…..

    Thursday, 28 April 2016, 9:57 pm
    • Maybe it’s that so called doctor in the Waddy family that is helping with the drug supply. I’m not talking the crack, I’m talking the pills they are known to distribute.

  • Whoops, upon reading the article again, I realized it was Hisslborough County the posted the $2,000 bond. These judges must have something going on between them.

    Thursday, 28 April 2016, 9:49 pm
  • Damn it Judges, enough with this typical $2,000 Bond Crap. This is truly becoming a typical pattern and should be investigated by the State Attorney Generals office. Why the hell is 98% of bonds posted by Hernando County Judges always $2,000? How do you allow a felon of this type to get out of jail by paying $200, Which is 10% of the bond? You clearly know he will be back on the streets within hours. He will go back to dealing drugs and using. So, who thinks this is just a disease or an illness?

  • called Waddy did he have drugs on him ? YES JUST PULL UP HIS PRIORS my family is fine my sister and brother neaver been in jail my kids neaver been in trouble because we are good parents so go take your furious elsewhere

  • But ,hey… Let us rename the South Brooksville Community Center. That will fix everything in that section of town. Seven thirty on Thursday evening and the traffic on Twigg is about one vehicle per minute. Ain’t nuthin on Twigg but drug dealers. Twigg is across the Street from the HCSO community center. It is delusional to think wasting money on a name change is going to do anything to fix that.

  • First off Crazy b. The Waddys are a lot of good ! No one says a family is perfect but for you to single out my family has me furious! We have doctors, lawyers, professional basketball and football players within our family. So for you to say Waddys are no good I will need you to reevaluate your family before you pass judgment on mine !

    Thursday, 28 April 2016, 6:31 pm
    • Your family brags about hiding their drug money buried in their yards and that they like white girls because they don’t want their offspring to be too dark. The Waddy’s are known as no good and that includes the sex offenders in the family. Sex offender Joe married a really young white girl and they now have two zebra babies. He was sleeping with her when she was still underage. He’s also a drug dealer, which many of the Waddy’s are. Ask anybody. Crazy b. is a sheriff deputy and she’s is a crazy b!!!

  • Why Hillsborough County Jail? My ex has had 2 warrants for child support and both times she turned herself in to Hillsborough. The reason being she lives in Hernando and didnt want her face on the Hernando Sheriff’s website. Thats a sign of the times, even criminals are allowed to make these choices because they don’t want to be shamed; shouldn’t be an option.
