MASON CITY – A Clear Lake man awaiting trial for allegedly strangling a Clear Lake woman has been arrested for violating the no-contact order placed by a judge in the case.

Clear Lake police were asked by Mason City police to help locate Chad Ryan Tannahill, 44, after he allegedly violated the no-contact order while in Mason City on May 22nd. The CLPD located Tannahill at a local hotel and made the arrest.

Tannahill is now being held in the Cerro Gordo County Jail on $20,000 cash-only bond.

Tannahill is facing charges of felony B kidnapping, felony D criminal mischief, domestic abuse involving strangulation, and now two charges of contempt of court for allegedly violating the no-contact order twice this month. He will face a hearing on May 30th.

Allegedly, Tannahill commited the crimes on March 13th, 2013, when he was armed with a knife and crescent wrench while confining a victim and assaulting her. He also allegedly took an ice chipper to a vehicle owned by someone else and caused more than $1,000 damage to it.
