As you'll recall, D'Vontaveous Hoston was awarded $42,000 for being kicked by Seattle police officer James Lee during a 2010 arrest. Now Hoston's name is the news again, though the only thing he's likely to be awarded this time around is another mug shot and a court date.

That's because police say 19-year-old Hoston is the man responsible for a scary scene in Federal Way earlier this month in which a bullet fired in anger nearly struck a 1-year-old child. Thanks to these allegations, Q13 reports that a $50,000 nationwide extraditable warrant has been issued for Hoston's arrest.

Last night, Q13's David Rose, something of a professional "bad guy" hunter, tipped me off to the latest charges against Hoston, who has also had run-ins with the law related to drugs and gun possession.

Here's Rose's tweet:

It's hard to decipher exactly whether there's a hint of law enforcement righteousness to Rose's tweet, though if there is it's probably due to the roughly 37 articles The Daily Weekly has published since 2010 about Hoston's run-in with Lee's foot, in which roughly 37 different variations of "kicked the hell out of" have been used in headlines.

And if Rose is pointing out that Hoston isn't exactly a sympathy worthy victim, it just became more difficult to argue with him, at least if the current allegations against the young felon prove true.

According to Q13's Washington's Most Wanted:

Federal Way police say D'Vontaveous Hoston came armed with a gun to his girlfriend's apartment in Federal Way earlier this month, got into an argument with someone else there, and fired off a shot that nearly hit a 1-year-old child in a bedroom. Detectives says the pistol was identified as a "rusty chrome .38 caliber" and was not recovered by officers.

Police are asking for the public's help in finding Hoston, who is considered 'armed and dangerous', and has a nationwide extraditable felony warrant in King County for Unlawful Possession of a Firearm and Reckless Endangerment. The 19-year-old is 5'08" and weighs 156 lbs.

Police, Crime Stoppers, and probably even Rose himself are currently searching for Hoston. You can find more info about those efforts here.
