David E. Martin, 49, of 4753 W. State Route 274, Huntsville, was charged with domestic violence following an incident at his home Wednesday evening.
Deputies were dispatched to his address about 9 p.m. His live-in girlfriend, Jane Roach, 44, said Mr. Martin had become angry that evening after two children at the residence had been acting up.
She said he grabbed her by the jaw and threw her to the ground, and then put his hands on her neck. Ms. Roach’s 15-year-old son then came to her defense, and Mr. Martin chased the boy to his bedroom.
The defendant was lodged in the Logan County Jail.
