Man accused of choking and kicking a woman

MANDAN, N.D. - A verbal argument turned into a woman fearing for her life on Monday in Mandan.

The affidavit says 38-year-old Lynch Johnson is accused of hitting and kicking a woman.

The 26-year-old woman told police he started choking her until she couldn’t breathe and that Johnson told her he was going to kill her.

Mandan Police brought Johnson to the ground after he tried to resist arrest. Officers were able to handcuff him and had to carry Johnson to the patrol car because he refused to walk.

Johnson is charged with Aggravated Assault, Terrorizing and Preventing Arrest.

His bond is set at $20,000 and he can’t contact the victim.
