Garland was charged with attempted strangulation, third-degree assault, harassment and obstruction of governmental administration after allegedly giving the woman a black eye, trying to choke her with an electrical cord from a fan and causing her to suffer a broken big toe on her right foot during an argument in his flat and then arguing with officers about 11:30 a.m.
