A 20-year-old Leesburg man was arrested on a domestic battery charge after admitting he “took things too far” in an argument with his child’s mother.

Leesburg police officers responded Friday morning to a report of a woman screaming in one of the apartments and the sound of objects banging. The first officer who arrived could hear a male and female arguing, according to the police report.

The victim told another officer that she and the father of her 1-year-old daughter, Davion Lee Nolden, had been in an argument. She said she was having a rough day and she wanted her boyfriend’s support, but it turned into an argument. The officer felt like the victim wasn’t telling the entire story and noticed redness on the victim’s neck. The victim didn’t want to say anything more at first but eventually told the officer that Nolden put his hands around her neck and covered her mouth, the report said.

Nolden told the officer the argument was about clothing and getting laundry done during the day. He said he took things too far. Asked if this was the first time that he became physical with the victim, he said no. Nolden didn’t want to speak any further and told officers to just place him under arrest, according to the report.

Nolden was placed under arrest for domestic battery by strangulation. It’s his second arrest in less than three weeks, as he was charged March 28 with criminal mischief. Nolden was booked at the Leesburg Police Department and taken to the Lake County Jail, where he was released the next day on $5,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in Lake County Court at 8:30 a.m. May 9.
