OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ An Oklahoma County sheriff's office corporal has resigned after being charged with a felony in allegedly strangling his live-in girlfriend.
The Oklahoman reports 40-year-old Jason Ledford of Oklahoma City was charged Friday with one count of domestic abuse by strangulation. Online court records do not indicate if Ledford is represented by an attorney.
Oklahoma City police arrived about 4:15 a.m. on July 26th after a person in a neighboring apartment reported screaming. Police reported the couple had been out drinking the night before to celebrate the woman's birthday. Ledford was not arrested, but he was suspended with pay following the incident.
In a protective order filed July 30th, the woman claimed Ledford choked her until she lost consciousness. She dismissed the order at an August 13th court hearing.
