    some of the comments on this story are just plain ridiculous. Let's be for real people.

    This is obviously a case of where the boyfriend was kicked out of the home and he and his mom came back to get his belongings. Yes he went about it the wrong way but I can understand why he did it.

    A simple police escort would have kept him out of this situation.

    and is the value of the stuff he tried to get back, worth a criminal record? guess having such a record doesn't matter since he already had a record. I guess there is no longer a sense of shame

    seriously, I am sure it was his stuff. Ex-girlfriend told him to go away, so he yelled at her, maybe communicated threats, gets locked up for domestic violence, gets out, and goes and gets his stuff. All the while, ex-girlfriend plays all innocent-like. I betcha that is the storyline here

    lumberman - "Neither of these two need to be allowed to reproduce again."

    Maybe that's how he got charged with domestic disturbance in the first place, his "mother" taught him that too maybe.

    God bless.

    Breaking in over a Playstation? I was hoping to read that they were breaking in to recover Mom's fine china and silverware that the ex-gf borrowed from her. Umm...too bad. :)
