A Clatsop County Grand Jury has returned an endictment against Astoria High School coach Bradford Dalton on two charges. Dalton is accused of one count of felony assault in the fourth degree and a charge of strangulation. The endictment states that on or about July 30, 2013 the 50 year old Dalton injured one of his daughters by strangulation as his other daughter looked on. Reportedly Dalton's wife documented the attack. The endictment is secret preventing comment from District Attorney Josh Marquis until Dalton is arraigned. Dalton works as the head girls basketball coach and also serves as a math teacher at Astoria High School
