A Chautauqua County man was arrested Sunday following an alleged domestic dispute, according to State Police.
Troopers said 22-year-old Austin Muntz, of Kennedy, was charged with two counts of second-degree reckless endangerment, second-degree unlawful imprisonment, criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation, second-degree criminal contempt, fourth-degree criminal mischief, endangering the welfare of a child and third-degree menacing.
According to State Police, an investigation revealed that during an argument, Muntz allegedly pinned an individual to a bed with both hands around her neck, making it difficult for her to breathe.
