James E. Anderson
A Brazil man was recently arrested on preliminary charges of strangulation and domestic battery.

According to Clay County Sheriff's Department Chief Deputy Rob Gambill, officers arrested James E. Anderson, 36, Brazil, Dec. 30, after an incident that took place in Knightsville.

According to Gambill, officers were dispatched to 944 Stone St., Knightsville, at approximately 11 p.m., Dec. 29, after a juvenile called 911 stating her boyfriend's uncle was "beating up his wife."

Upon arrival, Gambill said officers were informed by two witnesses that Anderson allegedly "slammed" the victim's face into a container of dishes and onto a nightstand.

Witnesses also said Anderson allegedly choked the victim.

The victim was treated at the scene via TransCare, but refused further medical treatment.

Anderson was taken to the Clay County Justice Center with a bond of $7,000, no 10 percent allowed.

It's a good thing the deputies got to him when they did. From the looks of him, he could have been killed.
