A woman said she was choked and thrown out of a moving car by a man who was jealous that men flirted with her at a bar.
Isaiah Ray McCallum, 28, of 2200 Elder St. was charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault, vandalism and interfering with emergency calls. McCallum had prior charges of assault, vandalism and passing worthless checks.
In the incident on May 11, the woman went with McCallum and others to the bar. The complaint says McCallum got mad "because he was jealous of other guys flirting" with her.
The woman said while they were driving to his apartment he choked her by the throat so that she could not breathe.
Then, she said, he opened the car door and pushed her out as the car moved. She said a man saw that incident.
She said McCallum stopped the vehicle and got her back inside, then took her to the apartment. There she said he choked her again so that she thought she was going to die. At one point she said he told her to punch him so he would look like the victim. She said when she tried to dial 911, he grabbed her phone and destroyed it.
She said most of her clothing came off during the attack. She was finally able to run outside and knock on the door of a neighbor.
McCallum was finally located and taken to the jail on all his outstanding charges on Wednesday.
