An argument between a divorced couple picking up their son at Woodlands Elementary School in Huron led to an arrest.

Daniel Clark, 46, of Bellevue was charged in Huron Municipal Court with domestic violence for allegedly choking his former wife, Ellen Houseman, 26, of Huron on Monday.

Police arrived at the school parking lot to find Houseman trembling and upset with red marks on the front of her neck. Clark is accused of reaching into her van and grabbing her by the throat.

Both Houseman and the couple's 9-year-old son separately told investigators the same account of the actions that followed the couple's argument.

During an interview with Clark, he told police Houseman must have gone to her home and put the marks on her neck herself. Clark had arrived at the police department to file a complaint against Houseman for slapping him in the face.

Hey Julie that can't be it because Perkins district pays twice what Huron does for water.

Jackie "BOY" Meyers lives there and set the rates low for him and his buddies. Funny though it's pumped how many miles further for less money... Go figure.

Either way it's not funny. I feel sorry for the lady and her son.

46 year old father- check

26 year old mother - check

9 year old son - check

Okay let's see, mom was 17 when son was born, dad was 37.

How could there possibly be any domestic issues?

Isn't this the former Nationwide Insurance agent in Bellevue?

Perkins is way over priced in everything. Building permits in Huron are $20.00, in Sandusky they are $50.00 in Perkins they are $151.50... yah and the water is rediculous too. Ok, but that's not the point here. I hope this man realizes what he's done (if proven guilty)... because his son witnessed it and agree with the mother... What a skeeze!

First of all they have her age wrong, she is 36. Yes it is the Nationwide agent from Bellevue. She is a hardworking single mother trying to do the best she can under the circumstances dealt to her.
