TOWN OF VIENNA — A Rome man was charged with striking his girlfriend in the head with a beer bottle during an argument early Sunday morning.
Sheriff’s deputies said they responded to Oswego Road for a report of a domestic dispute at 1:30 a.m.
Upon arrival, they found that Tyler Edick, 27, was fighting with his girlfriend and struck her with the bottle.
The victim was not injured, deputies said.
Deputies learned that Edick was out on bail, and that he was in violation of an order of protection. Edick became combative and began to fight with deputies.
Deputies said after being taken into custody, Edick was charged with first-degree criminal contempt, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, resisting arrest, second-degree harassment and obstructing governmental administration.
He was arraigned in Centralized Arraignment Court at the Oneida County Correctional Facility, and bail was set at $25,000. Edick will later appear in Town Court.
