A local man has been charged after allegedly impeding the breathing of his girlfriend.

Shane Quigley, 21, was charged Tuesday with domestic-abuse assault after he and his live-in girlfriend became involved in a physical argument over food and clothing.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Quigley didn’t want the victim to enter the residence, so he allegedly pinned her to the ground and his hands around her neck. The victim sustained small cuts and bruising around her neck, the complaint said. Quigley also sustained some cuts and scratches on his arms and neck.

Domestic-abuse assault impeding the flow of air/blood is an aggravated misdemeanor.
