A Coralville man was charged after he allegedly choked a cab driver.

Stephen Freyermouth, 24, was charged on Thursday with assault with intent to inflict serious injury and fourth-degree criminal mischief.

According to a Johnson County Sheriff's Office report, Freyermouth allegedly tried to strangle a cab driver who had given him a ride home from downtown Iowa City. Freyermouth placed his hands around the victim's neck and then grabbed the seat belt and twisted it around the victim's neck while saying, "I'm going to kill you," the report said.

Freyermouth then allegedly fled on foot; he was located several minutes later in the same area by officials and identified by the victim.

Fourth-degree criminal mischief is a serious misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail and a maximum fine of $1,875. Assault with intent to inflict serious injury is an aggravated misdemeanor, punishable by up to two years in jail and a maximum fine of $6,250.
