A Morristown man was arrested after he allegedly struck a woman, causing an injury that sent her to the hospital Tuesday evening.
State police say 61 year old Jude Holland was violating an order of protection when he allegedly hit the victim in the mouth with an open hand at a home in Morristown.
Troopers say the victim suffered a minor injury and sought treatment at Claxton-Hepburn Hospital in Ogdensburg.
Holland was charged with first-degree criminal contempt. He was arraigned in Oswegatchie town court and sent to St. Lawrence County jail without bail.
The court issued a new order of protection. The current one is set to expire in July.
