Domestic Violence Charge Bound to Court

A charge related to a domestic incident has been bound to McKean County Court.

33-year-old Joseph Spencer of Bradford is charged with simple assault. According to papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone’s police saw red marks on his face that he said he got while fighting with Tristen Johnson. Johnson had red marks on both sides of her neck.

Police say they determined that Spencer tried to choke Johnson while she was on a bed, “causing Johnson to defend herself, leaving marks on Spencer.”

Johnson’s child told police, “Joe was on top of my mom and grabbed her neck,” according to court papers.

Spencer is free on unsecured bail.
