CLEAR LAKE | A Clear Lake man has been arrested for domestic abuse after he strangled a woman and pushed her down the stairs, police say. 

Davin Fitzpatrick Mcleod, 39, was charged with misdemeanor domestic abuse assault -- impeding flow of air/blood following an incident at a residence in the 500 block of Pine Brooke Drive in Clear Lake.

At about 8:21 p.m. Tuesday, Mcleod was allegedly arguing with a woman and grabbed her by her throat, which court documents said restricted her breathing.

He is accused of pushing the woman down a stairway, causing her pain and bruising to her right arm and head, Clear Lake police noted in charging documents. 

Court documents said Mcleod also grabbed the woman by her hair.
