CINCINNATI (AP) — Authorities say a man was arrested after an Ohio sheriff’s deputy was choked into unconsciousness while investigating a domestic dispute.
The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office says the attack on the 36-year-old deputy happened Saturday afternoon in Columbia Township in suburban Cincinnati.
The sheriff’s office says the deputy was assaulted in the lobby of a hotel while trying to settle a dispute between 29-year-old Jeffrey Cooper and a woman.
Investigators say Cooper of suburban Norwood was jailed on charges of felonious Assault and attempted murder of a law enforcement officer.
Online jail records don’t list an attorney for the 29-year-old Cooper to comment on the charges.
The deputy was treated for his injuries, which weren’t life-threatening.
