Is It Against The Law To Break My Own Things In My Own Home During A Fight?

That sounds very much like Menacing, a B misdemeanor that carries domestic violence ramifications for you.

The situation can be much worse if minor children live in the home, who may experience mental or emotional distress at seeing an adult behave that way.

That could be charged as Endangering the Welfare of a Child, which can put you away for a year and cause the children to be removed from the home.

If, while breaking something, you injure another person in the home, you risk additional charges.

What you’re describing is a dangerous way to handle extreme emotions, especially in today’s climate of heightened vigilance around domestic violence matters.

If you’ve been threatened or charged with a domestic violence complaint for damaging your own property during a fight, get legal guidance right away.
