Milwaukee Fire Captain Charged with Beating, Strangling, and Stalking

A Milwaukee fire captain is behind bars this Monday morning.

He has been charged with beating, strangling and stalking his girlfriend.

The Milwaukee Fire Department confirms Leon Butts was a captain.

A criminal complaint say the abuse happened at a home the two lived in. In the last month, the victim says Butts accused her of cheating.

She threw plates and a jewelry box and says butts responded physically, giving her a black eye, head butting her, and choking her until she threw up blood.

Leon Butts will be back in front of a judge on Friday.
