Police say a Missouri man used a roll of wrapping paper to choke his wife on Christmas.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports police arrested 26-year-old David Anderson Hampton Jr. for the assault in the St. Louis suburb of St. Peters.

Online court records didn't indicate an attorney.

The woman told police she blacked out during the Christmas attack.

Hampton was charged with felony domestic assault and is being held in the St. Charles County Jail in lieu of paying a $50,000 cash-only bail.
