Maricopa Police responded to a reported domestic dispute between a woman and Ira Miller at 4:54 p.m. on Sunday. Miller, 45, was arrested at a Greenland Park Drive address in Cobblestone Farms on an accusation of aggravated assault for allegedly choking her.
The woman said the attack stemmed from an argument over their house not being clean. She said Miller picked her up by her throat and placed her on the ground. She said Miller held her by the throat for five to six seconds.
The woman’s minor son is said to have entered the room where the altercation occurred, jumping on Miller and attempting to stop him. When interviewed, the son said he had seen Miller “choking” his mother. When asked what choking was, the son “placed his own hands around his neck.”
