I responded to [600 BLOCK] Goolsby Rd in reference to a domestic in progress. When I arrived on scene I spoke to a Mr. [VICTIM #1]. Mr. [VICTIM #1] let me know that his mentally unstable son, Mr. Wendell Brown III aka “TJ”, was inside the home tearing up stuff. Mr. [VICTIM #1] explained that he wanted to press charges on Mr. TJ for the damages he caused.
I then spoke to a Ms. [WITNESS #1]. Ms. [WITNESS #1] advised me she is Mr. [VICTIM #1]’s Mother and Mr. TJ’s grandmother. I then went inside the home to see the damage taken place. I saw what I thought was a broken decoration figure bowl in pieces on the floor. I also saw some food in the kitchen area slung around the floor and kitchen table. I also noticed a broken broom in the floor of the kitchen. I saw a door what looked to be ripped off its hinges and the door frame pulled off the wall. I observed what seemed to be paint residue from a door where it possibly had been slammed into the wall behind the door.
I also noticed dents in the refridgerator from where it looked to have been kicked in. I took pictures of damage and linked into report. I asked Mr. [VICTIM #1] what an approxamite value of the damage taken place would be. Mr. [VICTIM #1] told me he believes it is about $1,000 in value of total damage. I then spoke to a Mrs. [WITNESS #2] inside the home. Mrs. [WITNESS #2] said she is Mr. [VICTIM #1]’s wife and Mr. TJ’s mother. Mrs. [WITNESS #2] let me know that Mr. TJ has done things like this in the past and has been evaluated for behavioral problems. Mr. [VICTIM #1] explained to me he has contacted the crisis team several times but has not received any callbacks.
I asked Mrs. [WITNESS #2], Mr. [VICTIM #1], and Ms. [WITNESS #1] if they would be willing to complete witness statement forms. All parties agreeded to do so. Statements areincluded in the report. Mr. Wendell “TJ” Brown III was arrested for Criminal Damage 2nd Degree – Felony. Mr. TJ was arrested and transported to Carroll County Jail without incident.
