On July 12th, Officer Tupper received a dispatch about a woman who was not breathing and that an ambulance was on its way. When he arrived at the scene, a woman reported that a 60-year old male had assaulted her. Upon investigation, officer Tupper noticed her neck was red, and there were several stray hairs in her hand. The witness stated that the attacker had walked into the room and proceeded to choke her, and this previously had happened a couple of days ago as well. Upon questioning, the accused male was found to be highly intoxicated, and after asking him to explain what happened several times he had conflicting stories, which determined he was lying. He was then placed under arrest for Domestic violence of the 4th degree, and was then transported to the police station. At the police station, he was read his rights, and then placed into Sand Point Jail without further incident.
