Authorities say 41-year-old Thomas Moore Jr. of Sanford was arrested Friday afternoon by New York State Police.

Moore was accused of choking someone during a dispute on Thursday.

Investigators say the other person tried to go to a neighbor's residence with the children but an altercation began.

The person who allegedly was choked then drove to the state police station in Deposit to report the incidet.

Troopers tried to find Moore but were unable to make contact with him. He turned himself in to state police the following day.

Moore was charged with aggravated family offense, a felony. He also was charged with misdemeanor counts of criminal obstruction of breathing and endangering the welfare of a child.

Moore was transported to the Broome County arraignment facility in the town of Dickinson.
