JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

A man faces charges, accused of domestic abuse after an alleged attack police say happened a month ago.

Johnson City police arrested Chris Steven Ricker of Johnson City and charged him with domestic aggravated assault. Back on August 3, police say an argument between Ricker and another family member escalated and ended with the other family member being choked.

Officers say Ricker turned himself in to police on September 2.

He is currently being held in the Carter County Detention Center. Bond is set at $5,000.
