PRIMGHAR—A 18-year-old Primghar man was arrested about 5:35 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, on charges of assault and fifth-degree criminal mischief at the Pride Group facility about a mile east of Primghar.

Nicholas Charles Yonashi Goodwin, a resident of the facility, admitted he “went crazy” due to being upset by someone changing the television channel and laughing at him, according to a complaint filed by the O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office.

Goodwin admitted to hitting another person in the face and chest as well as head-butting the other person in the day room of the facility.

He also threw several rocks at the large picture windows, attempting to break them; attempted to throw water on two computers; attempted to rip the TV off the wall; and slammed a door into the wall, putting cracks into the newly repaired drywall.
