New Port Richey man accused of choking wife says marriage is the problem

NEW PORT RICHEY — A woman told officers her husband tried to strangle her Wednesday afternoon.

"Arrest me," Christopher L. Bukowski, 39, told officers, according to a report. "I did it."

The New Port Richey Police Department did not say what caused the argument between the couple, who have been married five years.

While the officer gathered paperwork for the investigation, Bukowski said "I choked her," the report states.

"I asked him why he did it and he stated 'If you were married, you would understand,'" the officer wrote.

Bukowski, of 6929 McBride Court, was arrested and charged with domestic battery by strangulation. He is being held without bail at the Pasco County jail.
