A Denver Secret Service agent is now facing two felony assault charges.
Lon Garner is accused of assaulting his wife last January and had originally faced a misdemeanor charge.
Today prosecutors filed the felony accounts against him.
His wife told investigators he tried to choke her after she kicked him during an argument.
She says she waited so long to report it because she says Garner said he would eliminate anyone who ruined his career.
Garner is on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.
He's free on 50-thousand dollars bond and must wear a GPS tracking device.
