21-year-old Devontee Matthews was jailed on April 14th after kicking a door into his pregnant roommate’s belly. Police spoke with Shanifa Honore, who said she and Matthews got into an argument which escalated when he kicked her bedroom door into her belly hard enough for it to knock her head onto the wall. Shanifa told police that Matthews returned to her room and hit her tv, causing the screen to crack. Officers saw the damaged door and tv, and Shanifa was visibly pregnant. There was video evidence of the incident as well. Matthews told police that he was upset about statements Shanifa and her boyfriend made. He was determined to be the primary aggressor and taken into custody.
