This alleged deadbeat Ronald Patrick Pruitt of Dalton, Georgia has been posted to ihatedeadbeats.com and identified as a deadbeat. The person writing the report told us about the reported deadbeat: When his son was 2 yrs old said goodbye to son said he was going to work. Instead he took off to Alabama. Our son set by door waiting for him. He never showed up. Over the next 5 yrs spradicly he would call drunk or high. When our son was seven phone calls stopped. He is 13 has not seen son or paid anything for him since she of two. He is going around telling people that our son is not his. My husband of nine years wants to adopt him. He is the only father figure he knows.
