Armless Gwinnett man involved in deadly fight jailed

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Published on: 09/27/07

A disabled artist known for painting with his feet was jailed this week on charges related to a deadly brawl with another man earlier this month.

William "Rusty" Redfern was booked into the Gwinnett County Detention Center Wednesday on a misdemeanor charge of affray, a legal term for fighting in public, and later released on $1,200 bond.

Snellville police said Redfern, 44, was dating a woman who lived across from Teer on Pine Street in Snellville. Teer was the woman's former boyfriend and Redfern was upset because Teer had telephoned the woman several times that day.

Witnesses said the men yelled at each other from across the street. Redfern, who was born with no right arm and only a stump for a left arm, then ran into Teer's driveway and head-butted him.

Teer, 49, died minutes later. Police initially suspected Teer died from the head-butt. However, a subsequent autopsy determined that he died of a heart attack. Teer had been suffering from coronary artery disease, according to the Gwinnett County Medical Examiner's Office. Family members said he was unaware of the ailment.

Redfern is a relatively well-known artist who learned to do pen-and-ink drawings with his right foot in a pointillist style, using hundreds of tiny dots to form a picture. His artwork was the foundation for a greeting card business in the 1990s and has been exhibited at numerous arts festivals.
