TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A Tulsa Public Schools assistant wrestling coach has been arrested on a complaint of domestic assault and battery by strangulation.

The Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/1ORWzaC ) reports the 36-year-old coach was arrested early Sunday after police received a domestic disturbance report from a woman. She says the man attempted to push her out of a vehicle while they were traveling on the Broken Arrow Expressway.

The woman says that after they got home, she refused to get out of the vehicle and he grabbed her by the ankle and pulled her to the ground. She says the man pushed his knee into her chest and choked her, and she regained consciousness as she was being dragged up the stairs.

Tulsa Public Schools spokesman Chris Payne says the coach has been suspended with pay pending further investigation. Bail was set at $10,000, and his arraignment is scheduled for May 11.
