CLEAR LAKE | A Clear Lake man has been arrested for assaulting and choking a woman in a trailer home in Clear Lake. 

Lachonce Delvon Buckner, 30, was charged with felony domestic abuse assault -- impeding flow of air/blood causing bodily injury following an incident April 19.

Between 6:30 p.m. and 6:57 p.m., court documents say Buckner allegedly pushed a woman he knew to the floor, dragged her across the floor and choked her with his hands in a trailer home in the 2400 block of South Shore Drive in Clear Lake.

The woman told Clear Lake police she could not breathe during the incident, according to court documents. Police noted in charging documents the woman had visible scratch marks along her right arm, shoulder and neck area, as well as an injury consistent with a rug burn on her right elbow. 

Buckner admitted to pushing and choking the woman, court documents said.

He was booked into the Cerro Gordo County Jail and was released after posting a $5,000 bond April 23. A no-contact order was filed April 20.

The court held Buckner for bond due to "lack of ties to Iowa," court documents said, which noted Buckner had only been in the area for two weeks. 

Buckner is claiming self-defense, the documents noted.

“He (sic) behavior is manic, which causes the court a concern as to whether orders of the court will be obeyed, both as to appearances and the no contact order,” court documents said.

Buckner is scheduled to appear in Cerro Gordo County District Court May 8.
