Update: Johnson City man accused of choking woman at Buffalo Street apartment

Jerriel T. Jordan

A Johnson City man arrested early Tuesday for three separate assaults on his ex-girlfriend, both which occurred after he had been drinking, according to police reports on the incidents.

Jerriel Jordan, 1010 Buffalo St., Apt. 1, is charged with two counts of domestic aggravated assault, one count of domestic simple assault and violation of probation.

Johnson City police were first called to a domestic disturbance at Jordan’s residence March 3 and found the victim, Alyson Cook, inside the apartment. She told police she and Jordan, who was her boyfriend at the time, began to argue with her after she returned home.

Cook told police Jordan had been drinking, started yelling at her and began to push her around. At one point during the altercation, Jordan poured a bottle of Mountain Dew onto Cook’s head, she told police.

Jordan left with some of his belongings prior to police arriving on the scene. After documenting the incident, Officer T. Salling obtained an arrest warrant for domestic assault.

The second incident between Jordan and Cook occurred May 25. Cook and friends were at a local bar when Jordan approached her. Even though the two were broken up, she allowed him to return to her apartment. When they got there, Jordan became angry and grabbed Cook and pushed her to the floor.

Cook told police that Jordan choked her, and a witness there told police Cook was unconscious. Jordan left the apartment before police arrived.

Police issued a warrant in that incident for aggravated domestic assault.

In the third incident, which happened early Tuesday, police responded to the same Buffalo Street apartment on a domestic assault. When police arrived, Cook ran out the apartment door and told them Jordan was inside. Police said Cook was screaming and crying and had visible abrasions on her arms, upper chest and her neck appeared to be swollen.

Police quickly found Jordan and took him into custody. A witness at the apartment told police he heard the argument and a struggle with things getting knocked around and then heard a “gurgling” sound as if Cook was being choked.

When police questioned Cook further, she became uncooperative and said “she was not innocent and would be known as ‘that white girl’ if she caused (Jordan) to be arrested.

During this time, Jordan cried and said “everything was unfair and that all the white people were ‘in on it and out to get him,’’’ according to a police report.

During processing at the jail, police said Jordan took off all his clothes and refused to put them back on.

Jordan was jailed on a $70,000 bond and is scheduled to be arraigned later today in Washington County General Sessions Court.
