A Fort Mill man has been charged with criminal domestic violence after he was accused by his wife of attacking her and breaking one of the crutches she uses to walk, according to a Fort Mill Police report.

Police say she sustained red marks on her arm that matched her story. The husband denied the details of the attack. He was arrested at the scene.
