Lorain police officer choked, tackled wife after son's birthday party, report says

LORAIN, Ohio -- A Lorain police officer charged with domestic violence choked, tackled and pinned his wife to the floor after a day of drinking at his son's birthday party, according to a police report.

James O. Connell, a five-year-veteran of the force, is on paid administrative leave after originally being transferred to desk duty, Lorain police Lt. Ed Super said.

The incident happened at 12:15 a.m. at the Connell home. Police would not disclose the location. The son was taken to the home of a family member prior to the incident outlined in the allegations.

The wife suffered swelling and bruising on her left arm, a raised red mark on the left side of her neck and a split lower lip in the attack, the report says.
