On 12/8/13, officers of the Johnson City Police Department arrested Andrew K. Burch (2422 Charles Street, Johnson City, TN 37601, 27 years old) and charged him with Aggravated Domestic Assault.
At approximately 8:30 a.m. on 12/8/13, officers responded to a 911 call regarding a physical domestic dispute at 2422 Charles Street. Officers made contact with the victim, who advised that she and her husband, Mr. Burch, had gotten into a verbal argument that quickly turned physical. During the altercation, Mr. Burch grabbed the victim by the throat and began to strangle her. The victim was eventually shoved aside and Mr. Burch left the residence. Officers found marks on the victim’s neck consistent with strangulation and defensive wounds. Mr. Burch could not be located at the time, and a warrant for his arrest was issued on the charge of Aggravated Domestic Assault.
On 12/9/2013, police arrested Mr. Burch on the charges of the warrant following another 911 call from the victim advising he was at the residence. He was transported to the Washington County Detention Center where he was held on a $20,000 bond. Arraignment was set for 1:30 p.m. on 12/10/13 in Washington County General Sessions Court.
