On Monday at 3:49 p.m., the North Platte police responded to a reported disturbance at a home in the 500 block of West Third.
When officers arrived, they heard a man yelling and hitting something inside the home, police spokesman John Deal said. They entered to find Aaron Clang punching holes in a closed interior door.
Clang was detained, and police found his wife, 31, her father, 65, and the couple’s four children behind the door that he was punching, Deal said.
Police were told that, before they arrived, Clang created hit the father several times, and shoved his forearm into the man’s throat.
When the wife intervened, Clang reportedly shoved her away and threatened her.
Deal said all this occurred in front of the children.
The group got away from Clang and shut the door, but Clang punched the door and tried to enter the room.
Clang was charged with domestic assault, third-degree assault and child abuse. No serious injuries were reported, Deal said.
After Clang was handcuffed, he became combative, trying to physically pull away from officers when he and police were on the small front porch, Deal said.
In the tussle, Clang’s face hit the side of the house, causing injury. He was treated at Great Plains Health, then taken to jail.
Another charge — resisting arrest – was filed against him.
Bond is set at $10,000, according to the Lincoln County sheriff’s office.
