"Come Here, Let me get this Fuckin' punk up right now."

--- John Garton, It Chapter 2

John "Webby" Garton is the leader of the homophobic bullies who savagely attacked Adrian Mellon and Don Hagarty in the Novel, It.

During the summer of 1984, John and his friends Chris Unwin and Steven Dubay attacked Adrian and Don because they were a gay couple. They threw Mellon over a bridge, continued beating up Don and were questioned by a police detective. When Don and Chris witnessed Adrian being killed by Pennywise, they tried to tell the police and both John and Steven but they didn't see anything.

After Adrian's body was found and buried in the Derry Cemetery, Garton was sentenced to ten years in prison at Thomaston State Prison.
