Officer Juliana Chisholm IBM 1789 met the complainant in the driveway of her home. The complainant gave the officer a statement she had already typed, dated and signed. The complainant stated the incident happened when she walked into the house after returning from a party on September 2, 2016 at 1145 hours. She stated the suspect jumped up yelling at her about a photo that was sent to his phone. The complainant stated the suspect refused to show her the photo and then the suspect wanted to see her phone. The complainant stated she told the suspect no and he began to punch her multiple times. The complainant attempted to get her phone from her purse and the suspect put her in a choke hold. The officer observed heavy bruising scratches and red markings just behind her left shoulder. The complainant did not want AMR and the children were at home but asleep in bed. The complainant said she waited until the suspect went to work and then she went to signs charges on him. She didn't know she had to have a case number.The report was taken in the afternoon on September 3. The victim did indeed file charges against Mr. Archie because the docket at JPD states that he was arrested on September 7 for domestic violence (simple assault). The charge is a misdemeanor. He was apparently released on his own recognizance.
The court ordered Mr. Archie to participate in a counseling class.
