A Dallas Center man was arrested Friday on a Dallas County warrant in connection with a Dec. 1 incident in which he allegedly choked his wife, who afterward suffered a stroke.
Billie Joe Stonehocker, 67, of 1107 Sugar Grove Ave., Dallas Center, was charged with domestic abuse assault-impeding air/blood flow causing bodily injury.
The incident began shortly after midnight Dec. 1 in the 1100 block of Grove Avenue in Dallas Center, where Stonehocker allegedly “did grab and shake” the victim “by the back of the neck until she lost consciousness. The injuries led to” the victim’s “suffering a stroke and requiring hospitalization,” according to court records.
The victim “confirmed it was Billie that did this,” according to court records.
A warrant for Stonehocker’s arrest was ordered and served Feb. 5. Stonehocker is held in the Dallas County Jail without bond until his initial appearance in Dallas County District Court.
