27-year-old Matthew Rainey had a domestic incident with his 12-year-old stepson at his wife’s Club Parkway apartment late March 25th. When officers arrived, they were advised that Rainey had come to retrieve his belongings. As Rainey did this, he started to lecture his stepson about not flushing the toilet or cleaning his room. Rainey then slapped the child on the left side of his face, grabbed him by the throat, and lifted him off the ground. Rainey reportedly applied pressure, making it hard for the child to breathe until his wife spoke through the Ring camera. Rainey then left before the police got to the scene. Officers noticed redness on the 12-year-old’s neck, and he added that he had difficulty eating afterward. Officers observed surveillance from the Ring camera, which only showed Rainey slapping the child. A warrant was issued for Rainey’s arrest. Later, Rainey was taken into custody for domestic assault on April 24th.
