COPPERAS COVE — A man accused of choking a woman until she urinated on herself and lost consciousness is free on $5,000 bond.

On Wednesday, Justice of the Peace Bill Price arraigned Henry George Anderson III on charges of assault, causing bodily injury and family violence.

On Tuesday, officers responded to a domestic disturbance call at Relax Inn on East U.S. Highway 190. The victim allegedly told them she was assaulted by her boyfriend, Anderson, because she had been visiting the home of her ex-husband.

She alleged that Anderson hit her in the face by her right eye and pulled her hair.

She said he allegedly grabbed her by the throat, slamming her up against the wall until she urinated on herself and lost consciousness.

According to police reports, officers observed redness to the alleged victim’s throat and left eye.

In an unrelated incident, officers responded to a domestic disturbance call Monday after a woman reported Jonathan Patrick Flannigan was allegedly waiving a loaded pistol, inadvertently pointing it at her several times, as part of a verbal altercation they were having. She told police Flannigan tried to take her cellphone away several times to prevent her from calling for help.

On Tuesday, Price arraigned Flannigan on $6,000 bond — $3,000 for deadly conduct and $3,000 for interference with an emergency telephone call.
