"Notorious" actor Jamal Woolard used both hands to choke his wife because he didn't like the way she was talking to their daughter ... according to the police report and 911 call obtained by TMZ.
We broke the story ... Woolard -- who played Biggie Smalls -- was arrested Saturday night by police in Snellville, GA after Woolard's stepson called 911 to report a family disturbance.
The 15-year-old boy told the 911 operator, "My stepdad, he hit my mom and he's acting crazy." At one point you can hear him yell at Woolard ... "You're going to jail!"
Woolard's wife, Alisha, told police her husband began screaming at her after she had scolded their daughter ... claiming he grabbed her by the throat, slammed her against the wall and told her, "Get the f*** off of my daughter."
According to police, the stepson said he heard his mom "making choking sounds" and confronted Woolard saying, "F*** you n****, I'm tired of you disrespecting my mom."
Police say when they arrived, they found broken furniture strewn about the house. Woolard told them he's very protective of his daughter because he loves her more than his wife.
Woolard was arrested for battery and child cruelty (for violence committed in front of the children) -- and he's been ordered to stay away from his wife and kids.
