We are sure domestic violence calls go up on Thanksgiving Day. You give Uncle Larry that much wine, and someone is going to get offended.
But your Uncle Larry has nothing on 23-year-old Matthew Campus. Officers were called to an apartment building in Wilmington Thanksgiving morning. A woman claimed Campus had punched her several times during an argument about alcohol. According to police, Campus’ sister confirmed the woman’s accusations by telling police she saw the incident.
Officers found Campus hiding out in a vacant apartment. They arrested him and transported him to the station, where his behavior started to change dramatically. He started threatening the officers and their families.
As he was being placed in a holding cell, he spit on the officers. And then, well, just read the statement below…
“Once in the holding room, Campus removed his clothing and began to masturbate and continued to make threats to the officers. Campus then packed some of his clothing into the toilet of the holding room and attempted to flood the room.”
After that madness, he had to be physically restrained in a squad car during his ride to the County Jail because he made several attempts to escape.
He’s now facing a number of charges including, domestic battery, aggravated battery, resisting arrest, and criminal damage to state supported property.
