Enraged Man Damages Salina Home

KSAL Staff - August 3, 2017 11:01 am

A Salina man was taken to jail early Thursday morning after his narcotic fueled frenzy damaged his mother’s home.

Captain Paul Forrester tells KSAL News that 27-year-old Derek White was arrested just before 3am Thursday after he allegedly walked into his mother’s home in east Salina and began a verbal argument with her around 1:30am.

Police say Derek White became violent after his mother, Tammy White tried to remove Derek’s son from the home and the escalating situation.

Derek then began punching walls, tore a ceiling fan down, damaged doors, poked holes in the ceiling with a pole and damaged a Toyota Camry that was parked in the garage.

Family members told officers they believed he was under the influence of methamphetamine and became very paranoid.

White is now facing multiple charges for felony damage to property and resisting arrest.

Loss and damage is listed at $1,200.

First of all KSAL can’t get their shit together and give the story right whatsoever that is not at all how any of that went I was not trying to get rid of his kid because he was outraged his kid wanted to spend the night with his uncle and once he left then my son became outraged started flipping out all due to a freaking drug that is taking this world by storm literally everywhere you look you see everyone is on this shit I don’t appreciate anyone talking about my son the way they’re talking about him he is a very good kid a very good father he made a mistake and that’s that if you people think this ain’t going to touch your life at one point or another you better think again because it’s everywhere you look and where you least expect it so id appreciate if you keep your comments to yourself and the people that out just remember everyone could be affected by this at some point or another in their life ppl tha t do know Derek knows this isn’t Derek at all… in fact one of the police officers that came to the house knows my son used to work out with him all the time and even he said this is not the Derek I know so with that being said have a little respect for the feelings that his family have you don’t have to be a bad person to get addicted to something that makes you go crazy it can happen to the best of us so you might want to think about that
