A Nesquehoning man has been charged with simple assault and harassment incident to a domestic dispute.

Upon arrival officers were met by Blaine Z. Smith, 30, of that address, who said he and his wife, Jennifer Smith, were having an argument.

Jennifer Smith later left the home with the relative. Blaine Smith was placed under arrest and charged, police said.
