A Lyle man was arrested Friday and is being charged with three counts of felony domestic assault for allegedly hitting a woman.

Court documents said that Roger David Miller, 51, allegedly threatened to “kick the crap” out of the woman and her daughter. Miller then allegedly got in the passenger seat of the woman’s car and hit her on the right side of the head with his forearm when she attempted to remove him from the vehicle.

When Lyle-Mapleview police arrived, Miller said the woman had hit him on the right knee with a bottle. Police later identified an injury on Miller’s knee.

Court documents state Miller told police he “would not ever hit” the woman.

Miller has been convicted of two past assaults on the woman in March 2006 and July 2007. His bail was set at $50,000 without conditions or $25,000 with conditions, which include weekly check-ins with the Mower County Court System, no contact with the victim and no alcohol.

He is scheduled to appear in court again on Oct. 14.
