A warrant has been issued for a Hartland man accused of assaulting, choking, and threatening a woman last week.
Jeremy Kent Posey, 43, was charged Friday in Freeborn County Court with three counts of felony domestic assault.
A criminal complaint says Posey got angry when the victim tried to explain a flooring project to him. Posey allegedly chased the woman, pushed her, and banged her head on the floor. The victim told investigators Posey grabbed her head, squeezed it, and twisted her neck as he sat on her chest.
Court documents say Posey taunted the victim, telling her it would be worse next time. Posey allegedly then grabbed a rolling pin and said: “This is exactly what I pictured I was going to use.”
Posey told the victim there would be “hell to pay” if she called the police, then threatened to shoot officers in the head with a .22, according to the complaint. The victim told police Posey does have a .22 rifle in the house.
Posey is on a mental stay of commitment and has a history of abuse according to the complaint. The victim told investigators she is afraid Posey will get so mad that she will end up dead.
The victim reported a swollen lip, a bump on her head, a headache, and a sore neck. She also told police Posey is abusing his medical marijuana prescription.
Posey has been convicted twice in Freeborn County of misdemeanor domestic assault. Police say those cases had two different victims.
A warrant has been issued for Posey’s arrest.
