Police: Man kicks down door over $40 gift

Police were called to a Tega Cay home last week after an 18-year-old kicked in a door in a fit of rage because his mother wouldn’t give him $40 for his birthday, according to a Tega Cay Police report.

The woman called police around 2 p.m. May 4 because her son had become “irate” when she refused to give him cash as a birthday gift. Police arrived at the Swarrow Circle home in Tega Cay to find the teen had thrown deck chairs off the back porch, broken a screen door window and kicked in the back door, the report states. The mom, 55, declined to press charges, telling police she just needed help until her son “cooled off.”
