Adam C. Fox was arrested by Maricopa Police Department on suspicion of assault and criminal damage on the evening of Oct. 9 at 7:24 p.m. Both offenses are said to have occurred on Oct. 8 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
The report alleges Fox became upset during a verbal argument with Jessica Slife and grabbed her by the throat.
“Adam then intentionally impeded the normal breathing of Jessica by applying pressure to Jessica’s throat for approximately three to four seconds,” the report says. “Jessica managed to free herself however Adam managed to grab her again.”
Slife said she didn’t feel safe leaving the residence on West Dutchman Drive until after Fox left the next day.
