Man Arrested for Child Endangerment

A man is in jail after choking a woman while she was holding her baby. Nevada County Sheriff Keith Royal says the incident took place late Tuesday evening on Brooks Road. 41 year old Jason Hommel was putting his crying eleven month old son to bed. The baby’s mother heard the cries become muffled and asked Hommel if he put something over the babies face. Sheriff Royal says he became enraged.

“He becomes angry and enraged and ultimately grabs her by the throat and starts choking her. She is forced to the ground and he gets on top of her. During this altercation, she is still holding the child in her arms and then he continues to choke her.”

Finally Hommel got off the victim, the entire time she was holding the baby. Sheriff Deputies took him into custody for suspicion of spousal abuse and child endangerment. He was booked at the Wayne Brown correctional facility.
