Moorhead man accused of kicking down ex-girlfriend's door after she defriended him on Facebook
Clinton Dean Corry, 25, is charged with one felony count and one gross misdemeanor count of damage to property.
According to the complaint filed in Clay County District Court, Moorhead police responded to a vandalism report at 5:49 a.m. June 3 at 1124 23rd Ave. S.
Corry’s ex-girlfriend said she didn’t live at the residence, but she stayed there often and Corry knew that.
Corry had dropped off their daughter there at about 5 or 5:15 a.m., and he returned at about 5:45 a.m. He and his ex-girlfriend argued for about five minutes before she shut the door and locked it, at which point he allegedly kicked the door once and then left.
The door was split down the middle and pushed away from the frame, cracking the sheet rock, the complaint states. The cost to replace the door and frame was estimated at more than $2,000.
Corry told a police officer that he went to the residence to drop off the child but didn’t kick the door, the complaint states.
The felony charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison. The gross misdemeanor is punishable by up to one year in jail.
