Deputies of the Madison County Sheriff's Department were called to Curtis Pike Thursday evening to respond to a domestic violence call involving a Richmond man.

When deputies arrived, they were informed Douglas Golden, 40, Curtis Pike, had assaulted the victim, choking the victim and leaving visible injuries to the victim's face, the citation reads.

The victim states Golden became angry over a dog being in the home, and began to "throw" the dog around. In attempts to stop the above, Golden pushed the victim in the chest, struck the victim in the face, and strangled them, according to the citation.

Golden then locked himself into his room, which deputies called him out of. While walking out of the bedroom, he looked at the vicim and said, "I hope you are happy."

In speaking with a witness in the home, they advised deputies that the victim did try to take the canine from the above, after Golden had locked it in a cage in his room.

In attempts to calm Golden, the witness informed deputies that Golden had "straight-armed" them, jumping over the bed shoving the victim. They went on to say the above allegedly had the victim by the face causing redness on the side of their neck, a red spot on their nose and red mark across the side of their neck which "appeared to be a hand mark or finger mark."

When interviewed by deputies, Golden refused to speak with them and stated, "Just take me to jail."

Golden was charged with fourth-degree assault (domestic violence) minor injury and first-degree strangulation.

He was taken to the Madison County Detention Center were he remained Friday afternoon according to online jail records.
