A Port Orange police officer asked a woman to show him how her husband tried to strangle her and when the woman put two fingers on the policeman's neck, she got arrested, records show.
Officer Michael Garay, responding to a domestic disturbance, charged Claudia Ambroziak, 58, with battery on a law enforcement officer, although he asked the woman for the demonstration, police reports state.
"I asked Claudia to show me how Joe (Ambroziak) choked her," Garay wrote in his report. "Claudia was able to place approximately two fingers and her thumb around the front of my neck...was able to apply pressure to the front of my neck."
Garay said he then grabbed Claudia Ambroziak's hand "before she was able to apply any more pressure to my neck," and charged her with battery on a law enforcement officer, according to his report.
