PARIS, TX -- A family is hailing their 11-year-old boy as a regular superhero for two heroic acts within two weeks. Daniel Andrew Walker, known as Bubba to his family, recently moved to Paris, where he is getting used to a new school after a very eventful past couple weeks.
He may seem like a regular 11-year-old who ate pizza for lunch today, but Bubba says he won’t forget December 30th.
"He's trying to kick her in the neck but I put my hand there and I got a hurt hand from it," he says.
Bryan Michael Morrison of Sherman was arrested for aggravated assault, and he's the man Bubba says was attacking him and his sister in a domestic dispute. Bubba called 911, but says Morrison yanked the phone out of the wall.
Some neighbors heard the noise and called police and his sister came away with bite marks, cuts, and bruises.
“I was talking to him and he said, y'all got 30 seconds to get on the couch or I'll beat y'all 20 times worse," he says.
Bubba moved to Paris to live with his dad. He was riding his four-wheeler, nicknamed the Bubba-mobile, and saw another child getting attacked by a black lab.
"I was almost in the reach that he could get me and I was like, 'here doggie doggie' because I didn't know its name and the dog turned around and started running after me."
The dog pulled back on a chain and other adults rushed to the child’s aide.
When asked if he was scared, he says, “Not really, I knew I was doing the right thing.”
He says violence should only be pretend, like in the movie, or on WWE, not a reality. Bubba and his father, Daniel Ray Walker, have their pro-wrestling belt and put on shows for family members, much like the stars on television.
"A lot of kids could've turned and went the other direction or did it the easy way out instead of doing it the easy way he stood up there and he stood tough, his head up high and he saved the day," says Daniel Walker, his father.
Now he's called ‘Super-Bubba,’ and just like his favorite superhero Superman, he's saved the day twice.
Now if he could just learn to fly.
The case is pending in Sherman, under investigation. Bryan Michael Morrison is still in the Grayson County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
Bubba is seeing the school counselor and he says he wants to be a pro wrestler when he grows up.
