Maybe He Was Just...

...choking his chicken?

A Charlotte firefighter is in Gaston County jail after being accused of several crimes early Saturday -- including strangulation and cruelty to animals.

Bryan Carlton Barfield, 29, was being held in Gaston County Jail Sunday afternoon with no bond. He’s charged with two felonies: assault by strangulation and cruelty to animals.

He’s also been accused of three misdemeanors: communicating threats and two counts of assault inflicting serious injury.

A police report on the charges was not immediately available. A spokesman for the Gaston County Police Department did not return calls seeking details on the arrest. And it’s unclear if Barfield had an attorney Sunday night.
