Matthew Thornton jailed for sending TikTok to estranged wife

23-year-old Matthew Thornton was caught trying to contact his soon-to-be ex-wife, Bayley Thornton, at Verkler Drive on March 14th. Bayley stated that she received a video message on TikTok from Matthew. She attempted to open the message, but Matthew deleted it immediately, leading her to believe he was trying to harass her. Law enforcement observed the message thread and saw a deleted message from TikTok username “CharredHilt.” During the course of the investigation, officers verified through gaming and social media accounts that “CharredHilt” belonged to Matthew. Matthew had an active COR in place, which prohibited him from contacting Bayley, so he was taken into custody and charged with contempt.
