Andrew Hoy, 23, was charged again after calling his ex girlfriend in hopes that she would drop the current serious charges against him.

Hoy was arrested for choking his girlfriend to near unconsciousness during a domestic dispute at their apartment on West Jefferson Street. Hoy is a known woman abuser with multiple arrests for abusing woman.

“Inmate Hoy tells (her) to calm down and that he has been through all of this before,” documents said. He also tells her, “You need to start listening to me! Tell judge you want it dropped!”
Hoy is already awaiting trial in connection with two other felony cases, including a domestic assault last year involving a different woman in Butler.
In that case, Hoy is accused of threatening his then-girlfriend with a knife after punching and choking her May 17, 2017
