Drunk Man Breaks Into Home 01

Naked Drunk Home Invader Poops on Family’s Floor

Intruder Matthew Coomes flooded an Idaho couple's kitchen, defecated on their floor and almost got shot. For some bizarre reason, the police didn't bother to arrest him

An Idaho couple is still fuming at police after a naked stranger waltzed into their new home, defecated on their carpet and flooded their kitchen—but was not arrested at the scene. Instead, cops in Kuna, a Boise suburb, gave the intoxicated 25-year-old, identified as Matthew Coomes, a ride home.

“It’s just frustrating that I’ve had to fight to stay safe in my own home,” Tricia Gillaspy told KTVB News.

She and her husband, Jake Gillaspy, had spent just two nights in their home when the drunken Coomes paid the pair an unexpected visit on June 15. The fracas occurred when the nude intruder strolled into the couple’s bedroom around 6:30 a.m., according to Tricia Gillaspy.

“My husband’s like, ‘What the heck is going on?’” she said.  “And I’m screaming in utter panic.”

Spooked, Coomes bolted into another bedroom to put on his shorts, Tricia Gillaspy said. Jake Gillaspy, meanwhile, grabbed a gun and chased after him. Placing the weapon to Coomes’ head, the husband began to march the suspect out of the house while dialing 911 on his phone.

“He’s like, ‘There’s a guy in my house. I’m going to shoot him. You better get a cop here now,’” Tricia Gillaspy said.

It wasn’t until police arrived that the terrified couple discovered that their unwelcome guest had run amok inside their house prior to barging into the bedroom. Coomes had turned the sink sprayer on full blast and stuffed it in a drawer, flooding the entire kitchen. He also dropped a deuce on the carpet.

“He must have been playing in it because he streaked it down the side of my walls,” Tricia Gillaspy said.

Instead of drying out Coomes in the drunk tank, cops charged the soiled sot with a couple of misdemeanors and gave him a ride home. Tricia Gillaspy said a sergeant later contacted her and said they bungled the incident and should have arrested Coomes. Kuna police now say they are conducting an internal affairs investigation into how the case was handled.

For his part, Coomes claims to have no memory of the rampage, according to police. He also says he has no idea how his T-shirt and underwear ended up on the floor of the Gillaspys’ home.
