A Tennessee man was arrested after police said he grabbed his girlfriend by the throat and broke the windows of her car.
Steffen Ramm, 22, of 7932 Friendship Road, Cross Plains, Tenn., was arrested on charges of battery, strangulation, criminal mischief and interference with the reporting of a crime.
Ramm and his girlfriend got into a fight in Franklin Cove Apartments at about 11:40 p.m. Tuesday. Ramm’s girlfriend told police that he put her into a choke hold after she tried to walk away, and police saw she had a red mark around her neck, a Franklin Police Department report said.
After the fight Ramm went out to his girlfriend’s car and punched one of the windows. The window didn’t break, so Ramm took a tire iron and began smashing the vehicle’s windows, including the windshield, the report said. Ramm was treated at the scene because his hand was bleeding, the report said.
Ramm is being held at the Johnson County jail on $8,000 bond.
