A Colorado man was charged with domestic-abuse assault without intent causing injury after he allegedly threw a female companion over a chair in a hotel room.

Coralville police responded to the Baymont Inn in the early morning hours Tuesday after the female victim placed a 911 call and reported abusive situation in room 302.

Officers arrived to find David Edgell, 36, and a female companion in the room. According to a complaint by Coralville police, Edgell initially admitted to arguing with the victim and throwing her over the chair, then denied the actions a short time later. The woman stated Edgell did throw her over the chair, and she sustained a small cut to the back of her head.

Domestic-abuse assault without intent causing injury is a serious misdemeanor.
