(LINTON) - 58-year-old Jackie Cullison was arrested after a woman was found battered along the side of the road late on the night of December 23.

Cullison was arrested on charges of felony strangulation and a misdemeanor charge of battery resulting in injury.

Linton Police Officer Paul Clark responded to the area where the woman was found and she told him she had been injured by two men at a nearby motel before escaping and fleeing to a friend's home.

In the probable cause affidavit prepared by Clark, he stated that he did not find this story to be entirely believable. He stated that she had no shoes on and her socks were only wet on the bottom, though she claimed to have traveled more than a mile, and it was raining and wet outside.

Clark reported that the woman had swelling and redness around her eyes and redness on her neck, along with complaints of pain in her head and shoulders. Her shirt, he stated, had red stains that appeared to be blood. She was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.

The man who found the woman told police that he heard a commotion and went to investigate when he saw a pickup truck on the road and the woman beside it. He told police there was an argument between the woman and the driver of the truck, before the truck drove away.

The woman asked police to call Cullison to be with her while she was being treated at the hospital.

At the hospital, police told her they didn't believe her story and she allegedly admitted to lying. She then told that she had gotten drunk and got into an argument with Cullison, and that he became angry and began hitting her repeatedly with a closed fist. She also claimed that Cullison put his hands around her neck and choked her.

Officers went to Cullison's home and he claimed that the woman had been intoxicated and belligerent, and that he had to make her leave his house, but she had not been injured when she left.

Cullison was arrested after police found blood on Cullison's pants.

Cullison posted a $500 bond on Dec. 29, and is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 2.
