Assistant Oregon Attorney General Susan Gerber faces several charges related to a Portland domestic violence call.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Oregon media groups are reporting a strange criminal case involving one of the state's top law enforcement officials.

Susan Gerber, who serves as the Oregon Assistant Attorney General under John Kroger, has been accused of trying to strangle another person.

The victim's identity so far has not been released.

The 40-year-old was arrested Saturday in north Portland early Saturday morning for charges related to domestic violence.

OregonLive says according to a spokesman for the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office, Sgt. Greg Stewart, police were called out to a report of domestic violence at a North Portland home Saturday morning at about 12:15 a.m.

The President's Day holiday delayed the release of more information on the case.

By 1:33 a.m. Saturday, Gerber was in custody, charged with Assault in the fourth-degree, Strangulation and Harassment.

Spokesman Tony Green with the Oregon Attorney General's Office told Salem-News.com they don't have a comment to release at this time.

"It is a matter that is being handled by the Multnomah County District Attorney's office. We will wait until that process is completed before commenting."

Gerber has been with the Department of Justice for nine years. Her role with the Oregon AG's office includes cases with inmates who are fighting their convictions.

This law enforcement official also has a role with the Oregon Psychiatric Security Review Board. That board oversees convicts determined to be insane.

Bad day for her. All that time working for justice, now her career is over, what a shame. A conviction for a domestic beef, precludes one from having a concealed handgun license, thus she will either be terminated or will resign. My bet is she will do the latter, and let the State AG have some cover.
