A 61-year-old Erick man with two prior convictions for domestic assault and battery was arrested for a third time on the same count after Beckham County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call last week.

On May 31, local law enforcement sent aid for a victim reporting that her spouse had awoken her from sleep by choking her. The victim also told investigators that Jeffrey Lynn Rhoades also drug her around the home by her neck and held her down with “force and violence and lawful intent,” according to the probable cause affidavit.

The Beckham County deputy arrived at the victim’s residence at approximately 5:21 am. The victim detailed how the dispute began.
