MURDO-A man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly choking a woman.

The Jones County Sheriff's Office received a call that night from the woman, who said that she and Daniel Patterson, 30, of Murdo, were fighting.

The woman reportedly said she had picked up Patterson from a bar earlier and they had both fallen asleep, but that she woke up to Patterson yelling at her.

The woman said Patterson proceeded to push on her chest and then choked her, and at one point she bit his hand in self-defense.

According to court documents, the woman sustained bruising on her neck, red marks on her chest, neck pain and some cuts on her face.
