Lawrence M. Bradford, 43, of 642 Bronson St., is facing three charges in City Court following a domestic fight Monday morning in which he allegedly choked his wife in front of their two sons, ages 1 and 2, according to Watertown police.
He was cited with criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation, endangering the welfare of a child and harassment.
Police said his wife, Kristie, was slapped and punched several times in the neck and head, and was grabbed by the neck twice. During one chokehold, he pushed her against a wall, police said.
Because the older boy was crying, he also pushed the child against a wall, police said.
