Louisville's Chris Thieneman Arrested For "Putting His Arm Around [A Woman's] Neck And Tr[ying] To Strangle Her".

Chris Thieneman, former candidate for Louisville mayor and Kentucky Senate, arrested on wanton endangerment charge

Chris Thieneman, a former candidate for Louisville Metro mayor and Kentucky Senate, was arrested Monday in connection with an altercation with a woman near the intersection of North Ewing Avenue and Brownsboro Road.

Thieneman, who ran against Hal Heiner in the 2010 Republican primary for mayor Louisville mayor and against state Sen. Perry Clark, D-Louisville, for the 37th District seat in November, was charged with second-degree wanton endangerment after the incident, a Louisville Metro Police report said.

The woman, who was not identified, was driving and Thieneman, 48, was a passenger when, during an argument, she stopped at the intersection and started walking down the street, the report said. The incident happened at about 3:10 p.m. Monday.

The woman walked to her business, which was not identified, to call police. Thieneman followed her and pushed his way into the building, the report said. Thieneman pushed her and when he tried to take her phone “he put his arm around her neck and tried to strangle her,” the report said.

The woman was able to get away and call police, who responded to the scene and arrested Thieneman.

The woman complained of minor injuries, including pain in her neck and redness to her neck and chin, the report said.

During the incident, the woman’s car — which she left in the middle of the road — was stolen.
