Aspen, Colo. (AP) - Aspen police have arrested a man accused of attacking a woman at her home after a ``Wrap Party'' at a bar for the film ``Cougar Hunting.''

Police say 30-year-old Christopher ``Christian'' Melendez II of Aspen threw the woman to the ground and choked her after she asked him and two other men to leave her apartment early Friday.

An arrest affidavit says Melendez was a wardrobe assistant and that the woman was his supervisor on the crew of ``Cougar Hunting,'' which filmed scenes in Aspen this spring.

Melendez allegedly told police he and the woman had an altercation after she pushed him.

He was advised Friday that he faces potential charges of second-degree attempted murder, felony assault and burglary. His phone number isn't listed.
