What does it take for a man to be arrested in Kuna, Idaho?
Apparently not breaking into a stranger's house, flooding the kitchen and smearing feces on the floor.
Matthew Coomes, 25, is alleged to have done that early Sunday morning in Tricia Gillaspy's home, but the responding cops let him go with just two citations.
Gillaspy and her husband woke up and saw a nude stranger later identified as Coomes in the bedroom.
"My husband's like, 'What the heck is going on?' And, I'm screaming in utter panic," she told KTVB TV.
After surprising the couple, the suspect ran into another bedroom and put on shorts. Meanwhile, Gillaspy's husband grabbed a gun.
"He's like, 'Get out of my house, now!' But the guy wouldn't leave. So, he puts the gun to his head, and says, 'I said, get out!'"
Coomes left the house, but wouldn't vacate the yard until officers arrived and drove him home.
As the Gillaspys surveyed the house, they saw that Coomes allegedly left his messy mark.
“He craps on my floor, and he must have been playing in it because he streaked it down the side of my walls,” Gillaspy said, according to KRMG TV.
The suspect also flooded the home by turning on a sink sprayer and shoving it into a drawer.
Coomes told police he didn’t remember going into the home or using a spray nozzle in the kitchen, though he admitted that he'd been drinking. He also couldn't explain how feces got on the carpet or why a T-shirt and a pair of underwear he was wearing ended up on the floor of the home.
As bad as the whole incident was, Gillaspy is most upset that the responding officer did not arrest Coomes. The officer cited him with two alleged misdemeanors and drove him home.
"I go running out the door, and am like, 'What are you doing!?' I'm like, 'This guy deserves to go to jail!'" she said, according to KREM TV. "It's just frustrating that I've had to fight to stay safe in my own home."
The Kuna police later admitted that Coomes probably should have been arrested. It's possible that he may still be charged with a felony count of malicious injury to property, according to UPI.com.
