Police arrested a 24-year-old man accused of throwing his grandmother into the side of a house trailer and injuring her.
Jacob Matheron reportedly grabbed his grandmother by the hair and told her he was going to kill her before allegedly throwing her against the side of the house. This happened about 2:30 a.m. Friday.
She had asked him to quiet down in the front yard.
Jane Sanders, who lives in the 600 block of West 20th Street, told police her grandson had come home intoxicated and begun yelling and breaking things out in the yard when she tried to calm him down.
Ada patrolman John Parker reported seeing a cut on Sanders’ right elbow and saw the bleeding. He also said she was complaining about a sharp pain in her right shoulder.
Sgt. Kevin Hood checked the backyard and saw Matheron climbing over the fence.
After a chase, Hood and Parker found Matheron hiding in a brush pile. The officers ordered him to place both hands behind his back.
When Matheron refused to move, Hood physically rolled him over, according to the police report.
The officers said they had to help Matheron to his feet and then hold him up. They said he would not, or could not, assist them in getting him into the patrol car.
Once in the car, patrolman James Gastineau transported Matheron to jail and booked him.
Hood and Parker returned to the residence and spoke with Sanders, who required medical attention because her shoulder hurt her when she tried to move it.
Mercy EMS arrived and took Sanders to Mercy Hospital Ada for treatment.
Matheron was arrested on suspicion of public intoxication, resisting arrest and violation of domestic abuse.
