27-year-old Chris James Helmke was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail in the early hours of Sunday morning after Carrie Elaine Albohn says he strangled her during a domestic disturbance. A witness to the incident, Thomas Albohn, confirmed the couple was in a “heated argument” that became physical when Helmke placed his arm around her neck in what he described as a “MMA choke hold.” The victim’s airway was restricted, at which point the witness stepped in to intervene.
