    He went inside the kitchen to text to the man who was

    Hello.
    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    After the cell phone of Tim vibrated, he stood up from the sofa.
    -Kevin, I have to take this call, is my wife.
    He went inside the kitchen to text to the man who was in charge of the practical joke. In the guest room, Clark recieved a message from Tim, indicating that Kevin was under the influence of drugs.

    Thanks.

    See above. I don't really like "in charge of the practical joke". Do you mean that the man thought up the joke or he carried it out?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Dear emsr2d2: Once again, thanks for your help and time.

    The "practical joke" was to make Kevin believe that ghosts appeared in front of him to tell him things.

    His "friends" gave drinks that had drugs mixed with the drinks.

    The "joke" was created by Kelly and Tim. But finally Kelly and Tim did not want to follow with the "joke". Clark blackmailed Tim to go on with the joke.

    Clark was not the creator of the "joke" but now is the man in charge of the "joke".

    Thanks.

    I understand the concept but the phrase "in charge of the practical joke" doesn't work. In your scenario, Tim emailed Clark and Clark is the main blackmailing Tim to make him go through with the practical joke.

    I'd use something like "Tim went into the kitchen to text Clark, who was blackmailing him into playing the joke on Kevin".
