Thousands of domestic violence charges are brought each year in the United States. In Orange County, Florida, if a domestic violence charge is brought against an individual, it can have devastating effects on that person's life, if convicted.
A Cooper City physician was arrested and charged with domestic battery last month after an altercation with his wife. According to the wife, her husband put his hand around her neck after pushing her against their bathroom wall. The husband then threw the wife to the ground. The couple's son allegedly observed the altercation. The husband was arrested shortly after the incident and was held on a $35,000 bond.
