Man held on $100K bond for allegedly choking woman

By Kyle Feldscher

A 26-year-old Ann Arbor man is held in the Washtenaw County Jail on a $100,000 bond after police say he strangled a woman during a domestic violence incident Saturday.

Eric Hartwell was arraigned on a charge of assault by strangulation Monday morning, according to court records. He was given a $100,000 cash bond, records show.

Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said a 911 call came in at 10:49 p.m. Saturday alleging that Hartwell choked a woman. Bush would not release more details about the incident because it is a domestic assault.

It’s not clear how badly the woman was injured.

Hartwell will return to court for a preliminary exam at 8:30 a.m. on May 16 at the 14A-1 District Court in Pittsfield Township, records show.

A 27-year-old Ypsilanti Township man was charged with criminal sexual conduct Tuesday for an assault on someone under the age of 13 & was given a 10 percent of $5,000 bond, which means he could get out of jail by paying $500. Yet this person gets a $100,000 cash bond. What's wrong with this picture?

I believe the other person had no priors. That is not mentioned here. If this person has an established criminal record, that may be the difference.
