On the above date and time, I Ofc. Kinchen was dispatched and responded to [1500 BLOCK] Lee St in reference to Domestic. Upon my arrival, I made contact with the complainant later known as [VICTIM #1]. Mr. [VICTIM #1] was on the front porch with pepper spray all over his face, and was struggling to breath.
I then asked Mr. [VICTIM #1] what happened, which he advised him and his roommate (Kenneth Schuyler) got into an argument and Mr. Shuyler pepper sprayed him. Mr. [VICTIM #1] advised Mr. Schuyler was still in the residence, and was inside of his room. I called for Mr. Schuyler to step outside. Mr. Schuyler then stepped out the residence and I spoke with Mr. Schuyler while the other officers assisted Mr. [VICTIM #1] washing the pepper spray off his face. Mr. Schuyler advised that Mr. [VICTIM #1] and himself got into an argument, and he sprayed Mr. [VICTIM #1] with the pepper spray. Mr. Schuyler stated that he felt threatened but he could not explain why he felt threatened.
After Mr. [VICTIM #1] got the pepper spray off his face I made contact with him. Mr. [VICTIM #1] stated that he was in his room watching tv when he heard Mr. Schuyler yelling in the kitchen. Mr. [VICTIM #1] stated he then came out of his room to see what was going on with Mr. Schuyler, and when he came out the bedroom to ask Mr. Schuyler why was he yelling Mr. Schuyler sprayed in the face with pepper spray. Mr. [VICTIM #1] stated him and Mr. Schuyler argue all the time, but stated that Mr. Schuyler had been drinking and when he drinking he is aggressive.
Mr. [VICTIM #1] also advised [REDACTED] is aware of Mr. Schuyler’s demeanor and is currently in the process of being kicking him out of the residence. Mr. [VICTIM #1] then stated his other roommate was in the residence and witnessed everything. At that moment EMS arrived on scene and began assisting Mr. [VICTIM #1]. Mr. [VICTIM #1] stated he would like to go to the hospital. I gave Mr. [VICTIM #1] a case card with the case number attached and gave him a victims bill of rights. EMS then transported Mr. [VICTIM #1] to the hospital.
I then made contact with the other roommate later known as [WITNESS #1]. Mr. [WITNESS #1] stated earlier that day Mr. [VICTIM #1] and Mr. Schuyler got into an argument. Mr. [WITNESS #1] advised Mr. [VICTIM #1] was outside the residence and Mr. Schuyler closed the front door locking Mr. [VICTIM #1] out of the residence. Mr. [WITNESS #1] stated then Mr. [VICTIM #1] began to knock on the door so he came out of his room to unlock the door to let Mr. [VICTIM #1] into the residence and Mr. [VICTIM #1] started calling him names. Mr. [WITNESS #1] advised he ignored Mr. [VICTIM #1] and went back to his bedroom. Mr. [WITNESS #1] stated from his room he heard Mr. Shuyler come out of his room and start yelling at Mr. [VICTIM #1] because he thought Mr. [VICTIM #1] was calling him the names. Mr. [WITNESS #1] advised that Mr. Schuyler did start the argument and instigated everything. Mr. [WITNESS #1] stated he heard Mr. [VICTIM #1] and Mr. Schuyler begin to argue in the kitchen and then Mr. Schuyler sprayed Mr. [VICTIM #1] with the pepper spray.
At that moment I handcuffed Mr. Schuyler checking for tightness and double locking the handcuffs. He was then searched before securing him in the back seat of the patrol car. I then transported Mr. Schuyler to CDC where I completed a ABIS/SOVI. Mr. Schuyler was then released to the jail staff for futher booking.
