EAST NAPLES, Fla., Sept. 26 (UPI) -- Sheriff's deputies in Florida said they arrested a man who allegedly choked his wife during an argument surrounding their Yahtzee game.
Collier County sheriff's deputies said the wife of Ian Stuart Wood, 50, told them she was playing Yahtzee with her husband Saturday at their East Naples home when they began to argue and she attempted to leave the home to calm down, the Naples Daily News reported Monday.
The woman told deputies Wood shoved her to the ground, pushed his knee into her back and placed his hand over her mouth while telling her to stop screaming. She said he then rolled her over and placed his hands on her neck, choking her.
The victim said she was able to escape and called authorities from a neighbor's house.
Wood denied attacking his wife and told deputies she had fallen while walking down the hall.
Wood was arrested on charges of domestic battery by strangulation, kidnapping-false imprisonment of an adult, resisting law enforcement officer without violence and obstructing someone from the use of 911.
