A: I assume and hope you have already retained counsel to represent you, but if not, you certainly should do so ASAP, and do not talk with the police or prosecutor nor enter a guilty plea without having counsel first examine your circumstances. But yes, depending on the particular circumstances, yelling and slamming doors "could" support a DV charge (for example, disorderly conduct).
