SAN ANTONIO -

David Yaeger, 47, is facing charges after San Antonio police say he bit and choked his new bride.

San Antonio police said David Yaeger attacked his wife in early September in an apparent jealous rage.

Arrest records show that Yaeger pulled his wife into their mobile home by her hair.

His wife claims that once inside, Yaeger nailed the door shut, ripped her clothes off and choked her.

As San Antonio police arrived, Yaeger's wife claims he bit her lips to keep her from calling out to officers.

San Antonio police say the couple have been married for a month. Yaeger was arrested this week charged with choking and unlawful restraint.
