Clyde man charged after holding young vandals in closet due in court
The Clyde man who corralled four boys in a closet when he found them vandalizing a relative's home is due in court, where a prosecutor has asked a judge to drop criminal charges against him.
Wayne County District Attorney Richard Healy has asked the judge in the town of Galen court to dismiss the four endangering the welfare of a child counts against Jesse Daniels, 53, in the interest of justice.
Police charged Daniels this month after the parents of the boys, ages 8 and 10, complained that he handled them roughly after finding them damaging his father-in-law's home in Clyde.
Daniels says he took hammers away from the boys and put the four children in a closet until police arrived. He says the damage topped $40,000.
