An Amarillo man was arrested after choking an Amarillo police officer. 

On Sunday night officers were called to the 8200 block of Laredo Trail on the report of a domestic violence dispute and a man with a gun.

Authorities say Patrick Smith allegedly assaulted a woman inside of the residence.

Smith then got into a physical altercation with a responding officer and choked the officer by the throat. 

The officer used a taser to subdue Smith and take him into custody.

Smith was arrested for Evading Arrest, Assault on a Public Servant, and Resisting Arrest. He was booked into the Randall County Jail.
