A prosecutor was arrested on charges of assault after allegedly throwing a mattress at his wife, police in South Dakota said.

41-year-old Matt Olson, a Turner County assistant district attorney, was arrested on Monday in his home.

Olson’s wife filed for a temporary order of protection the next day, claiming that Olson took away her phone before giving it to her sister.

Olson then threw a king size mattress at her. He also broke a kitchen table. The wife said that he cut off the electricity to the house and twisting her arms behind her back.

She filed for divorce last week, citing irreconcilable differences and extreme cruelty. Olson faces up to one year in jail if convicted.
