A Hubbard Lake man is in trouble with the law for allegedly assaulting his former wife.

Investigators with the Michigan State Police were sent to the woman’s home on Hubert Road in Ossineke Township at 3 a.m. Friday, (JAN 10) on a report of domestic assault.

The victim said she and her ex-husband, 47 year-old Christopher James Smolinski, got into an argument when he pushed her down and choked her. The couple was living together at the time.

Smolinski was arrested and charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder or by strangulation, and domestic violence. He faces up to 10 years behind bars if convicted as charged.

Bond was set at $50,000. Smolinski is due back in court on January 22.
