“[The woman] immediately went inside and brought the small child to safety and then dialed 911,” according to the police report.

When police arrived Leffler was found standing in the living room of the home. Police reported it was immediately apparent Leffler was intoxicated.

“When asked what was going on [Leffler] stated, ‘nothing,’ and acted very casual,” according to the report.

Officers then spoke with the allegedly battered woman and her child.

When the child saw the officer, he immediately said, “He beat up my momma,” according to the report.

Police noted it was obvious the woman had been through a “traumatic experience, as she was timid and very reluctant to speak.”

She later told police Leffler had started a verbal argument while she was in the shower, and he then became physically abusive by throwing her against walls and putting her into a “full rear choke hold.” 

She reported he then threw her on the ground and continued beating her, at which time the child tried to pull Leffler off his mother and the bystander entered the home and secured the child.

Leffler was preliminarily charged with domestic battery.
