A Cummings man is free on bond after his recent arrest in connection with domestic disturbance at a residence along Meade Road.
Jason W. Pantle, 42, was arrested Thursday, May 2, in connection with aggravated domestic battery, according to an Atchison County Sheriff’s Office report, which said deputies took him to jail following his arrest.
Pantle is scheduled for an appointment at 9 a.m. during the criminal docket Friday, May 10, in Atchison County District Court, where he is expected to hear a formal presentation on the aggravated domestic battery matter.
The case relates to a recently revised area of concern in state criminal law. The statute authorizes a felony criminal charge in certain incidents of domestic violence, such as those involving choking and other injuries to the neck area.
At about 7 p.m. May 2, deputies responded to a reported domestic dispute, Undersheriff Toby Smith reported. It is alleged the victim, a 31-year-old woman, was reportedly choked and suffered minor injuries. She was not examined by Atchison County EMS, Smith said. There were no weapons involved in the incident.
The report was forwarded to the office of Atchison County Attorney Sherri Becker for review. Meanwhile, Pantle is out of jail amid the fulfillment of a $2,500 bond agreement.
