HAMILTON COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

An Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper accused of assaulting his wife and threatening to kill her is on desk duty, patrol officials said Wednesday.
 
The trooper charged is Christopher Sanger, according to Hamilton County Assistant Chief Prosecuting Attorney Ryan Nelson.

He has been on "administrative duties" since Aug. 28, wrote Sgt. Vincent Shirey, a spokesman for the Ohio State Highway Patrol, in an email to FOX19 NOW.

The incident in question happened in late August between Sanger, 33, and his wife.

Police say he pointed a gun at his wife’s head and threatened to kill her while trying to keep her from leaving their Newtown home.  Nelson said that Sanger used his service-issued weapon in the incident. 
 
In court records, officers go on to say that Sanger “threw his wife off the bed and used his forearm to cause bruise on her right eye.” 

Furthermore, the paperwork states that Sanger kept his wife from leaving their home by “chasing her to the front door and dragging her by her hair down the hallway.”

Police say that resulted in a large chunk of her hair being ripped out.

Nelson says that the incident may have stemmed from allegations and suspicions of infidelity. 

In a motion filed on Tuesday, a restraining order against Sanger was dissolved. 

Sanger is charged with assault, aggravated menacing, unlawful restraint and domestic violence. 

He is out of jail, and is due back in court in late October.
