Trevor J. Stebbins, 27, faces felony charges of aggravated assault and malicious injury to property after a late-night altercation in an Eagle home that injured the homeowner and broke a flat-screen TV.
Stebbins, whose relationship with the homeowner has not been disclosed, is accused of hitting the homeowner in the face, causing facial injuries and a broken tooth, according to the Ada County Sheriff’s Office. The incident was not a break-in, ACSO reports.
Eagle officers for the sheriff’s office were called to the home near West State Street and Eagle Road just after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday to check out a report that a man “was destroying the inside of the house and injured someone,” the sheriff’s office reports. Officers set up a perimeter around the house, and the homeowner came outside, where paramedics treated the person’s injuries.
The man inside, later identified as Stebbins, moved toward a back door but went back inside after seeing officers, according to the sheriff’s office.

Officers used a loudspeaker in an attempt to draw the suspect outside, the sheriff’s office reports. After a few minutes of unsuccessful efforts, police knocked on the door of the home again. Stebbins eventually emerged from an inside room, telling officers he had just woken up. He was arrested and taken to the Ada County Jail.
Stebbins, a Meridian resident, was also charged on misdemeanor counts of possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. Aggravated assault and malicious injury to property charges each carry a sentence of up to five years in prison.
He was arraigned on the charges Wednesday and a no-contact order was put in place. His next scheduled court appearance is a preliminary hearing Aug. 9
