The Alabama police officer was accused of sexually assaulting and attempting to strangle his wife.
33-year-old Jimmy Darrell Smith, was arrested by the Tuscaloosa County Homicide detectives on Thursday. He faces two counts of sodomy and one count of domestic violence by strangulation.

The victim told police that her husband threw her onto a chair, choked and sexually assaulted her. The victim told police that she was unable to breathe, as her husband had his hands around her neck.
The case was subsequently referred to the Tuscaloosa Metro Homicide Unit, due to the nature of the case.
