Forrest has not one but two Facebook pages. Here's one portrait....

...and another.... ...and another.... ...and a larger version of the cropped shot above: The pages show that he's a big New England Patriots fan and suggest that he's also a young father.

Not mentioned is his criminal past, synopsized by 7News like so: "In less than two years, Forrest has compiled a four-page adult arrest history in Colorado. His prior arrests include carrying a concealed weapon, receiving stolen property, burglary, theft, harassment, disturbing the peace, trespassing, marijuana possession and driving with a suspected license."

He's currently being held on suspicion of first-degree attempted homicide of a peace officer involving a gun, among a slew of other charges.

Burns is reportedly in good condition after several days in the hospital. Here's a look at Forrest's booking photo, followed by our previous coverage.
