Chamberlain man charged with choking woman, threatening officer
CHAMBERLAIN —A Chamberlain man has been arrested for allegedly choking a woman and threatening a police officer.
On April 16, Chamberlain police responded to the River Buttes Apartments, where a woman had reported being choked by Trevor Williams, 33, who was still in the apartment when police arrived.
According to court documents, the woman who had called 911 was reportedly found to have what appeared to be fingerprints around her neck, scratch marks on her chin and arm, a bruise on her arm and a large red spot on her chest where she said Williams had pushed her.
Williams was found in a bedroom inside the apartment and was placed under arrest. While being searched outside a patrol car, Williams allegedly said he would slit the arresting officer's throat if he had a knife.
Williams reportedly continued to be uncooperative throughout the booking process at the Brule County Jail and was found to have a blood-alcohol content of 0.218. He is charged with one count of aggravated assault, a Class 3 felony, and one count of threatening a law enforcement officer, a Class 1 misdemeanor.
