An argument between a father and his daughter Sunday evening resulted in the man being arrested on charges of assault and strangulation and she being charged with disorderly conduct.

The father told officers she used profanity against him during the argument.
His daughter said he punched her in the mouth and grabbed her neck so she had trouble breathing.
The father said she attacked him and he was defending himself. He showed officers scratches on his face.
The officers reported the girl had a swollen lip.
