MILLINGTON, Tenn. (AP) -- Authorities say a Millington police officer has been charged with assault after an altercation with his wife.
The Shelby County Sheriff's Office says 41-year-old Jeffery Hepler was arrested Tuesday night.
The sheriff's office says deputies arrived at Hepler's home to respond to a domestic violence call. Authorities say Hepler told deputies he was involved in a verbal argument with his wife.
Deputies say they found the officer's wife on the floor of the bedroom. She was unresponsive after a possible seizure but was revived.
She allegedly told deputies that Hepler had grabbed her by the neck and held her down.
Online court records do not show if Hepler has a lawyer.
