According to court documents, state representative Bob Young was detained and charged with domestic violence over the weekend after allegedly hitting a relative.

According to police, Bob Young slapped the victim in the face on Thursday before throwing her phone into a swimming pool to stop her from dialing 911.

Bob Young, who appeared in court on Saturday, is now bound by a number of restraining orders, which prevent him from being near or contacting the victim he is accused of assaulting.

A request for comment was not immediately answered by the Summit County Republican’s office, and Bob Young was not reachable by phone. Documents filed in court for him did not indicate a counsel.

Republican colleague and House Speaker Jason Stephens urged Bob Young to step down. Stephens was a special guest at a fundraiser for Bob Young and another politician, but he claims he left before the incident occurred.

“Although I believe that people are innocent until proven guilty, I asked Bob Young for his resignation as state representative so he can focus on his family at this time,” Stephens said in a statement on Sunday.

The Summit County sheriff’s office was contacted for comment.
