He showed KHOU 11 News the damage vandals did last weekend when he was out of town. “They stomped on my computer screen and cracked it.

Martin thinks someone is sending him a message. “The police tell me this was meant to send me a message to get out of dodge.” Martin blames the Forest Lake Townhome Association, that’s been fighting him for years over his flag pole.
