An officer met with the man at the Municipal Justice Center shortly after 6 p.m. Feb. 11. The man, who lives on West Barr Street, said he was asleep in the bed that morning when he was awakened by his live-in girlfriend, who had her hands around his throat, according to a Lancaster Police Department incident report.
The man said he jumped up and pushed her off him. They then got into a verbal argument, the report said.
