David Wright, 44, 904 Long St., was charged with aggravated domestic assault.
Police went to Wright's residence Wednesday after 911 received a call from a woman who reported that a man was choking her. Arriving officers could hear yelling from inside the house, prompting them to enter.
They found Wright on top of the woman with his arm around her neck.
Wright was jailed in the Washington County Detention Center on $25,000 bond and arraigned Thursday in Sessions Court.
