A Longview Police Officer is out on bond after being arrested at a Big Sandy residence.

Aulderson Levi Franklin was taken into custody over the weekend for assault family violence after an investigation revealed the officer allegedly choked his wife.

“The victim stated that a verbal argument had ensued and turned physical with Aulderson throwing her to the floor and choking her,” said Upshur County Lt. Freddie Fitzgerald.

Franklin has been released on a $5,000 bond.
