Ammon man arrested for attempted strangulation and domestic battery

The Bonneville County Sheriff’s Office has arrested an Ammon man after witnesses say he attempted to strangle his girlfriend.

The sheriff’s office arrested 30-year-old James J. Wolfe Monday night after a disturbance at a home on the 3000 South Block of Ammon Road.

According to the report, when deputies arrived they found Wolfe had been in a fight with his girlfriend and tried to strangle her during the fight. A male and female roommate heard the fight happening in the other room and intervened to protect Wolfe’s girlfriend. Both roommates were battered by Wolfe and the altercation ended when the female roommate struck Wolfe in the head with a rubber mallet.

Wolfe received a cut on the head which was treated at EIRMC before being transported to the Bonneville County Jail.

Wolfe was arrested and booked into jail on a felony charge of attempted strangulation, and misdemeanor charges of domestic battery, violation of a no-contact order, and two counts of simple battery. The victims sustained minor injuries in the altercation.
