Man faces charges after domestic incident
CLINTON TOWNSHIP A Clinton man faces nine charges after a domestic incident during which he told police they would have to shoot him to get him to comply.
Matthew J. Yoss, 30, of 406 Hart Drive, Clinton, is charged with criminal damage to property, disorderly conduct, burglary, stalking, resisting, second-degree recklessly endangering safety, battery, violating a no-contact order after a domestic abuse arrest and misdemeanor bail jumping.
He was arrested Monday and posted his $2,000 bond Thursday.
According to the criminal complaint:
Yoss went to his wife’s house at 8 p.m. Monday in the town of Clinton. When she wouldn’t let him in, he exposed himself to her.
Yoss came back around 8:45 p.m. When his wife wouldn’t let him in, he punched out a window and kicked in a door. A man inside the home tried to stop Yoss from entering, but Yoss cut the man’s arm with a piece of glass.
Yoss then went to his daughter’s bedroom, and his wife called police.
When police arrived, Yoss was sitting on the stairs clutching his daughter. He said he would never let her go, and police should just shoot him.
Police pulled the girl from Yoss’ arms and arrested him.
After the arrest, police say Yoss sent messages to his wife on her cellphone and on Facebook. Police suspect Yoss tried to call her from jail and the hospital.
