TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A Tallahassee man was arrested on charges of sexual battery and false imprisonment.

Anthony D. Earnest Sr., 43, was booked into the Leon County Detention Facility on Wednesday based on a probable cause affidavit filed by a Tallahassee Police Department investigator.

His arrest stems from incidents that occurred May 22, 2017.

The affidavit said that Earnest choked the victim into submission.

Because Earnest has a prior battery conviction, the battery is a felony, the court document says.
