FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A Fort Wayne woman is accused of choking, biting and knocking out a man Wednesday, according to Allen Superior Court documents.
Fort Wayne Police arrested 25-year-old Justice K. Bridges shortly after they were called to a local liquor store where they found a man suffering from a laceration over his eye.
The man told officers in court documents he had been trying to retrieve his cell phone from Bridges at a home when they got into an argument, according to court documents.

When the man awoke, he said Bridges as well as his phone were both gone. He also told officers his children were home and at least one of his kids walked into the room during the altercation, court documents said.
The man then went to the liquor store to call police.
Bridges is being held in Allen County Jail on $18,250 bond on charges of domestic battery causing serious bodily injury, domestic battery in violation of a protective order, domestic battery committed in the presence of a child less than 16 years old, strangulation and invasion of privacy.
