Husband loses it when he finds out his wife is corresponding with an ex.
A man was booked into jail on suspicion of assaulting his wife of 28 years after she contacted an old boyfriend on Facebook.
The woman reported to sheriff's deputies that she had connected over the Internet with a man she had dated 32 years ago. The woman had told her husband about it and "he appeared OK" with it, the sheriff's report said.
On Friday, she told deputies that her husband had become upset with the Facebook contact and demanded to know her password. Later that day, he called her 18 times at work, even though she told him to stop. Her told her to "tell everyone at work goodbye," which she took as a death threat.
The woman was scared, so she went to her mother's house.
The woman also reported that on March 7, her husband had assaulted her at their home, causing bruises and a bloody nose. The deputy's report noted that the woman has bruises on her body.
Sheriff's deputies contacted the suspect at about 4 p.m. Friday, apparently by cell phone, and told him to meet them at the house. He asked if his wife and children were OK and asked what was the matter. The deputies told him they would tell him when he got to the house.
When the suspect arrived, deputies questioned him about his wife's allegations of telephone harassment and assault, and his only response was to repeatedly say how much he loved her. The report states the suspect appeared intoxicated.
Because the suspect's blood-alcohol level was .25, well above the legal limit of .08, he was deemed too medically unstable for booking. He was taken to the hospital until his condition stabilized.
He was then taken to the jail and booked on suspicion of telephone harassment and fourth-degree assault. His bail was set at $40,000.
