Deputy faces criminal charge for alleged domestic dispute

In Orlando and throughout Florida, when law enforcement is called to investigate allegations that a domestic assault has taken place, the last thing they expect to find is that another member of law enforcement is the accused. However, it does happen. This shows that there can be a domestic incident with anyone at any time. Another fact about these cases is that people who are arrested on these charges have the right to a strong criminal defense.

A deputy was accused of getting into an altercation with his estranged wife and throwing her on the ground. He was placed under arrest when police arrived. The couple is said to have been in the middle of an argument in the parking lot of his residence. Initially, when the police came, they spoke to the fellow officer about what happened. His wife was not there. She called later and they went back to the apartment and spoke to her. She chose to file a charge of battery against her husband.

According to the man, he arrived at his residence and found his wife and daughter in the middle of an argument. He alleges that he was unaware of how she found out where he resided. The daughter stated that her father grabbed her mother by the arm and threw her on the ground. She then said he placed his knee on her to keep her there. The woman had cuts and bruises on her body. He claims that she was being aggressive and they both fell while he was trying to restrain her. He was in uniform at the time of the incident and was armed, therefore he faces a charge of armed battery. The couple is still married despite being estranged and that makes this a domestic violence incident.

This seems to be a complicated case between an estranged husband and wife that led to a physical confrontation. Compounding matters is that the man is a law enforcement officer and was in uniform when the incident took place. With these charges, not only does the man face legal sanctions, but professional ones as well. When a person is facing charges of domestic violence, he or she may want to seek legal assistance in order to formulate a strong criminal defense.
