Clyde police arrested Michael Shrewsbury, 30, early Saturday morning after the woman’s friend called police for help as he was leaving her residence in the 200 block of Midvale Avenue.

When officers arrived, they could hear a woman inside screaming, and as they tried to kick in the front door, she jumped head first from a window, then reached back inside the house to get her 3-year-old son. 

Shrewsbury then opened the front door and police ordered him out at “Taser-point” and handcuffed him. The victim told police she’d been at a bar and Shrewsbury was home with her son. He left the boy at home and went to find her to make her go home.

The woman stayed with her friends at the bar, however, and later returned home escorted by another friend. Shrewsbury and the man argued, and Shrewsbury forced the man outside.

When the woman tried to escape through a living room window, Shrewsbury allegedly dragged her, threw her around the house and tried to choke her.

Police arrested Shrewsbury for domestic violence, drug abuse, unlawful restraint and endangering children.

He remained jailed Tuesday afternoon.

Sounds like they should have charged them both with child endangerment too. He left the child alone and she didn't go home to find out if he was okay. She's as bad as he is.

In a Redneck kinda way, sounds like he was trying to do the right thing by telling the mother to get her A** home. Kid was probably sleeping. He shouldn't have been beating on the women, but she should of been arrested too! I know that I'm gonna take some heat for posting this, but that's how I see it.

She should of been arrested ? For her crazy boyfriends irrational immature behavior? He was watching the child, not her.... And I am sure she didn't leave with him, he sounds dangerous. Why leave with him if you are gonna get beat.

I agree with UN and MAN, they both should have been arrested.
sounds like a classy woman, out at the bar, won't come home, but when she does arrive it is with another man. what was she going to do? just stop home to pick up the child and take it out at night with her drunk ass? cmon people!
