His kids said he was high and he refused to come out of a bedroom no matter how many times the police asked him to open the door July 25.
Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy Chris Ferree said he was sent to Crowder Road on a call of a man tearing up his residence.
Ferree said he and other officers were met by two juveniles at the end of the driveway who said their father was in the house and he was high. Ferree said he walked up to the front door and could hear a man and woman inside screaming at each other.
Ferree said he made his way into the house where he encountered three more juveniles who told him their father was in a back bedroom.
Ferree said he then saw the man, identified as Don Clenton Young, who slammed shut the bedroom door and refused to open it.
Ferree said he could hear a woman, later identified as Young’s wife, yelling at her husband to open the door. Ferree said he then told Young to open the door several times, but Young just kept asking, “Who’s there?”
Ferree said they identified themselves several times, but Young refused to open the door and his wife kept screaming.
Ferree said they finally opened the door by force, but Young still refused to listen to anything they said.
Ferree said they grabbed the man and forced him onto the bed where they placed him into custody.
Ferree said he then talked to Young’s wife who said she believed her husband has taken a drug. She said he was acting normal, then started acting crazy and destroying the house. She said she tried to get him to leave several times, but he refused.
Ferree said there were items thrown everywhere in the house and several things appeared to have been destroyed.
Ferree said he read Young his rights, but Young just asked what was happening and other unintelligible things.
Young, 44, Crowder Road, Madisonville, was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
