Idaho family upset that police didn't arrest naked, drunken man who pooped on their carpet

The Gillaspys might have a point there...

KUNA , Idaho, June 24 (UPI) -- What do you have to do to get arrested in Idaho?

A Kuna family is upset that a naked, drunken man who allegedly pooped on their carpet and flooded their kitchen was only cited with two misdemeanors but not arrested.

The Gillaspys woke up to a naked man walking around in their bedroom early on Sunday morning, but he quickly sprinted off into another room.

"My husband grabs the gun because we have no idea who this guy is," Tricia Gillaspy told KTVB. "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!'"

The suspect, Matthew Coomes, left the home after 911 was called, but he was still milling around outside when police arrived.

Then everyone saw what the 25-year-old allegedly did downstairs.

"He took this sink sprayer out and this drawer was in there. He put it in the drawer, turned it on full blast hot water, it filled that entire drawer full. It flooded my entire kitchen," Gillaspy said.

"He craps on my floor, and he must have been playing in it because he streaked it down the side of my walls. The stain is gone finally, thank goodness."

Instead of being arrested, Coomes was cited with two misdemeanors.

The Kuna Police have since admitted that the responding officer probably should have arrested Coomes and it's possible that Ada County prosecutors could charge him with a felony count of malicious injury to property.
