BOULDER — A Boulder Community Hospital doctor accused of putting co-workers in choke-hold is on trial.

Two former Boulder Community Hospital employees testified Tuesday that Dr. Niles Utlaut put his arms around their heads and grabbed them last summer at the hospital's campus.

Utlaut is accused of third-degree assault.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera (http://tinyurl.com/kyya6rr), the women told police they were leaving the medical records department when Utlaut came up behind them and put his arms around their necks in a tight grip and ordered them to finish paperwork before they left the office.

Utlaut's attorney, Eric Klein, says Utlaut never put anyone in a choke-hold and any contact was accidental as a result of the three people working in a small space.
