No grounds for pressing charges
An 18-year-old kid, still living at home told his parents he was going to a party. They told him he was not allowed to go, but he went anyway. he then called his parents on the way home and they told him not to return due to the fact that an argument might ensue.
He came ehome anyway and they parents locked him out.
Not to be deterred, he grabbed a fire poker and tried to pry the door open. At this point the parents just let him in.
The kid had soot all over his hands and proceeded to rub it all over the walls of the house. He then ripped the thermostat off the wall.
The father then approached his son, with the mother not far behind to see what was going on. The son charged his father and proceeded to punch him, according to a police report.
The father was able to push him away and go call police, but not before the kid shoved his mother and pushed her down, according to a report.
He then left the house.
While police were speaking to the victims, the son called his mother and said he wanted to speak to police. He told his mother he was pressing charges against them.
Another officer waited for the son to arrive and spoke to him in the street. When he exited the car he arrived in, the odor of marijuana came wafting out of the car.
He told the officer he thought he broke his hand while punching his father in the head and wanted to press charges.
The officer told him both parents agreed he initiated the struggle, and the son began yelling about how his parents were liars.
According to a report, because the son was growing agitated, police asked him if he had any weapons or drugs and if he would consent to a search. He agreed but suddenly placed his hand in his left pocket and would not remove it.
So police did it for him and found a box of cigarettes with green plant material inside.
The driver of the car he arrived in told police he was smoking before they arrived and had left a glass pipe in her center console.
She was then released and allowed to leave.
The subject was charged with simple possession for the .19 grams of weed, as well as paraphernalia
