A Wadena man offered to cook a girl Valentine's dinner, but ended up being charged with domestic assault by strangulation after an alcohol-fueled fight, court records said.

Bobby Stephen Roberts, 33, drank a half bottle of rum during the day, and allegedly held the woman against the wall by her throat, causing red marks later observed by police. He also put his hand around her throat, the victim claimed.

An omnibus hearing in the case was scheduled for March 19.
