A Columbus man was arrested this morning on domestic violence charges after his wife approached an off-duty Columbus police officer at a gas station.
Sgt. Matt Harris, spokesman for the Columbus Police Department, says the woman told the officer that she had been battered and that her husband had damaged her telephone. So she ran to the gas station in the 1700 block of North National Road at about 1 a.m. in an attempt to get help.
43-year-old Alex D. Dickherber drove to the gas station a short time later and was arrested on preliminary charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated, domestic battery and interfering with the reporting of a crime.
