Man shatters plate of food near sleeping children

Sandusky Register Staff • Apr 3, 2014 at 8:20 PM

Stephen Patterson, 23, 3200 block W. Monroe St., was charged with disorderly conduct intoxicated and two counts child endangering.

It was about 3 a.m. when Patterson’s girlfriend called police, saying she wanted him out of their Monroe Street house because he was “out of control and scaring the children” according to a Sandusky police report. When officers arrived, they noticed food scattered on her face and in her hair, as well as a shattered plate on the floor.

The woman first said Patterson threw the plate at her, then later said he just tossed it in the air, the report said. The woman’s nose had a scratch, but she maintained the argument never turned physical.

Officers charged Patterson with child endangering because the woman’s 4- and 7-year-old sons were asleep on a mattress nearby. Patterson was taken to the Erie County jail.
