A La Crosse woman is accused of trying a choke a male roommate of hers, after returning from a month-long vacation to find the house messy.
Twenty-one-year-old Chloe Lorenz faces charges of strangulation, battery, and disorderly conduct.
The roommate tells police that Lorenz choked him in the bathroom for about 10 seconds on Monday, and left a long scratch on his neck.
Lorenz says the two got into a fight, and she may have pushed him in self-defense.
She suspects that one or two of her roommates also stole a space heater from her bedroom.
Lorenz was given a signature bond, and was ordered to have no contact with the victim.
