Nigel Kuhl, 31, is charged on a Buffalo County warrant with felony first-degree assault and misdemeanor domestic third-degree assault on Jan. 24. He was arrested Thursday, Jan. 30 in Sherman County on the warrant.
Earlier that week, a state probation officer reported to law enforcement that one of her clients was physically assaulted Jan. 24 in the garage at Kuhl’s residence. Kuhl and a woman got into an argument and he allegedly pushed her to the ground, and records indicate Kuhl spat on her.
