Mauch's daughter reportedly told the arresting deputy that her father punched her in the face and choked her for three seconds.

The deputy says she had bruising in the corner of her left eye and a red mark where she said her father punched her.

The deputy says Mauch, who was contacted at his home following the alleged incident, said he did not hit his daughter.

The deputy says Mauch had scratches on his arm and chest.
