Jackson Man Faces Felony Charge for Allegedly Strangling Girlfriend

A 52-year-old Jackson man was expected to arraigned Tuesday on two charges after he was arrested by Saline police following a domestic incident Sunday evening.

The Washtenaw County prosecuting attorney’s office authorized a felony complaint of great bodily harm, less than murder, by strangulation. That charge is punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a $5,000 fine. A second domestic violence complaint is a 93-day misdemeanor.

Police Chief Jerrod Hart said police responded to a 911 call on Nichols Drive around 10 p.m. Sunday evening. As police arrived, they spotted a vehicle leaving the residence. Police stopped the vehicle and detained the driver while investigating

“The investigation revealed that the man had an argument with his girlfriend who lives at the residence. During the argument he allegedly put his arms around her neck and restricted her airflow for several seconds and then he fled,” Hart said.

The woman was transported by ambulance to the University of Michigan hospital for treatment of injuries. Hart said the woman is expected to recover from those injuries.

The man was arrested and transported to Washtenaw County Jail and was expected to be arraigned Tuesday.
