A Lake Hamilton man is in custody after Garland County authorities responded to a domestic violence call on Tuesday night.
Christopher Johnson, 31, was arrested around 11:30 p.m. at his girlfriend's home located at 509 Lakeland Drive, according to a statement from the Garland County sheriff's office.
Authorities received the call about 11 p.m. The 40-year-old female victim told officers that Johnson entered the bathroom while she was in there talking on the phone, "pulled her hair, hit her on the left side of her head and threw her to the floor," police said.
An investigation revealed the victim had suffered injuries consistent with what she had described, authorities said.
Deputies found Johnson sleeping in a bed in the home and noticed blood around his nose and mouth, which matched the victim's account of a struggle between the two. Johnson admitted he was intoxicated, and deputies then took him the Garland County jail. A breathalyzer test revealed he had a blood-alcohol content of .383, almost five times the legal limit, according to the statement.
Johnson was charged with third-degree domestic battery, a misdemeanor, police said. He is being held at the jail without bond and is due in court Oct. 29.
