A woman was choked and had other injuries after an argument at a Long Beach home turned physical, police say.
The woman was taken to a hospital for treatment and police arrested city employee Michael Hamilton Fitzgerald on a felony charge.
Fitzgerald, 57, was wearing a Long Beach patrol shirt when he was photographed for his booking mug Sunday at the Harrison County jail.
Fitzgerald was a guard at the Long Beach Harbor, where he worked for the harbor master as a non-sworn officer, Police Chief Billy Seal said.
