PELHAM MANOR, N.Y. Pelham Manor police responded to a domestic dispute at a home between a father and mother that occurred early Wednesday morning.
Police found a man, who was not the father, in the front doorway vestibule of the home shortly after 2:35 a.m. The man was uncooperative and refused to answer officers questions about what was happening, according to the police report.
Police identified the man by his license and put him in the back of a police car after many attempts to get information from him. They later released him and sent him on his way.
Officers interviewed the mother and the children. The woman said the childrens father was intoxicated and yelling in the kitchen of the home. She said he was complaining about their financial situation and that they would not be able to support themselves due to the current domestic order of protection between them.
She said he also yelled about the news that his work license was being held up because of the order of protection.
Police found an open and spilled can of Coors Light beer on the kitchen table. The woman gave police a temporary order of protection, which stated that the man could only be in the basement of the house. His presence in the kitchen violated that order, according to the police report.
The woman said the argument escalated and she called 911 and her neighbor for help because she became frightened.
Police found the man in the basement and informed him that he had violated the order of protection. The man told police that he was out drinking with his cousin, the man who was in the vestibule, and had a beer in the kitchen when he returned home.
The man appeared intoxicated and was belligerent and uncooperative both at the home and at police headquarters, according to the police report. Police processed and held the man for arraignment.
