Stamford police: Parents interfered with arrest of son for sending sex videos – Connecticut News


STAMFORD — Two parents face charges after police say they became combative with officers trying to arrest their son for sending sex videos to his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend.

Sgt. Rhett Connelly said a woman filed a complaint Saturday about her boyfriend receiving sex videos of her and her former boyfriend, Matthew Johnson-Kirby. She said Kirby sent the videos and violated a judge’s protective order that prevented him from contacting or harassing her, Connelly said.

Officers were confronted by Kirby’s parents when they went to their Ashton Road home Saturday night, Connelly said.

His father, Lorenzo Kirby, 55, began cursing and insulting the officers, while slamming the door on them twice, Connelly said.

His mother, Charlottle Kirby, 56, then opened the door and “starts up in the same manner,” Connelly said.

When they heard their son in the house, the parents became more aggressive with the officers, Connelly said.

Lorenzo Kirby placed his hands on the chest of one of the officers and was charged with interfering with police and breach of peace, Connelly said.

Charlotte Kirby became angry with how officers were taking her son into custody and she was charged with interfering with police and breach of peace.

Matthew Kirby was charged with disseminating voyeuristic material, violating a protective order, harassment and resisting arrest. He was held on a $50,000 court appearance bond.
