    Police have charged a western Pennsylvania man with assaulting his live-in girlfriend twice on his birthday, once before and then again after he returned from a court-ordered anger-management class.

    The Heralds of Sharon, Pa. says 37-year-old Robert Green has been taking the classes because of an April altercation with the 21-year-old woman. She told police his behavior has gotten worse since he started taking the classes.  
    Online court records don't list an attorney for Green who is accused of grabbing the woman around her neck Wednesday morning, then doing the same thing and pushing her down that afternoon, after returning from a class.
    Green was charged Thursday with simple assault, disorderly conduct, harassment and marijuana possession, and faces a preliminary hearing Aug. 31.
    He doesn't have a phone listed in his name.
