CALCUTTA - A man was charged with domestic violence Wednesday evening after visiting his wife on Cannon Mills Road.
Melissa Glover, 36, reportedly told St. Clair Township police that her husband Gary, 38, came to the house for dinner and she asked him to leave when he began drinking excessively.
The two are currently living separated, according to the police report.
Officer Chris Davis noted in the report that Gary Glover was standing in the front driveway talking on a cell phone when he and Detective Joseph Brophey arrived.
The officers searched Glover and placed him inside the cruiser, according to the report.
Melissa Glover was located on the steps inside the Cannon Mills Road home, holding her arms across her chest and crying, Brophey noted in the report.
North Star Critical Care was dispatched to the home after she told Brophey she had back and chest pain when inhaling.
She said she was assaulted by her husband when she told him to leave the home, according to the report.
Gary Glover became "irate" at the request, and put his hands on her arms before moving them up to her throat and pushing her against the back of a metal porch chair, bending her backwards over it, she advised the officers.
The assault reportedly stopped when her 14-year-old daughter entered the room and screamed at Gary Glover.
The juvenile told officers he called her mother names and threw some furniture off the rear porch before hitting her, choking her and hitting her back off the chair, according to the report.
She also advised that he punched the refrigerator, causing items to fall to the floor, and took her cell phone when she tried calling the police.
She was able to notify authorities by using a telephone in another room, the report indicated.
Gary Glover reportedly told officers he "screwed up" when being served with the first degree misdemeanor charge.
He also said a minor mark on the knuckles of his right hand was from punching the refrigerator, according to the report.
Melissa Glover was transported to East Liverpool City Hospital for treatment.
Gary Glover appeared in East Liverpool Municipal Court Thursday. A second arraignment is scheduled for 9:45 a.m. Sept. 14 for the domestic violence charge. Cash/surety or 10 percent bond is set at $10,000.
