An Iowa City man has been accused of being involved in a domestic dispute.

Louis Richter, 26, was charged Sept. 27 with domestic-abuse assault impeding air/blood causing bodily injury.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, officers were called to Richter’s residence after receiving reports of a fight.

An officer spoke with a woman who said she was choked until she dropped to her knees and was bitten on the skull.

While Richter allegedly denied hurting her, he did admit that after a night of drinking, he restrained the woman’s arms to prevent her from hitting him.

He also said he held her hair back while she was vomiting. Richter and the woman have lived together and shared expenses for the past year, the complaint said.

Domestic-abuse assault impeding air/blood causing bodily injury is a Class-D felony.
