BALTIMORE (AP) — An aide to a Michigan congressman was charged with attacking his boyfriend with a kitchen knife and shovel, according to police and court records.
Timothy Foster, 32, was arrested Oct. 8 and charged with aggravated assault and two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, online court records showed. A phone number could not be found for Foster, and court records do not list an attorney for him.
A police report said officers met a man at a Baltimore hospital, who reported he and Foster argued at Foster's address.
The report said Foster put the man in a chokehold, then lunged at him with a kitchen knife, threatened to kill him and used a gay slur.
Police said Foster's wife got in the way and Foster hit the man in the back with a shovel. The man got into his car and drove to the hospital, according to the report.
The officer saw abrasions on the man's back neck and torso.
Congressman Sandy Levin's chief of staff, Hilarie Chambers, said the issue is "a completely private matter" and that the employee has been placed on unpaid leave pending a resolution. The Democrat's office had no further comment.
The incident was first reported by CQ Roll Call.
A trial is scheduled for Nov. 10.
