Labor Day weekend, I was at my home with my wife. After taking Ambien my wife was acting very differently. I approached her asking if she was ok and what was wrong. She suddenly began attacking me in my face and neck. I walked away from her giving her some space, I went outside. I returned to her about a half hour later, her appearance was worse than before as if in a trancelike state. I approached her again asking her if she was ok, again she attacked me. I then grabbed hands to stop her physical attack. I was now bleeding from my face at this time.
Again I went away from her going to the bathroom this time. When I returned to the room this time she was gone, I was worried about her and began looking around the house for her. I couldn’t find her in the the home so I looked in the front yard area, I noticed lights at my neighbors house. I walked to his front door his wife screamed and he came to the door. I asked him if he had seen my wife. He said she ran over needing help, he called 911. I asked where she was and he said in the Police car talking to them.
I then returned to my residence and waited for them to come talk to me. A few minutes later 2 deputies came to my residence and we chatted casually. Our chat was not about the situation, I did ask about my wife. They told me she had told the other deputy that I did something but they were not sure. Approximately an hour later they arrested me for domestic abuse. I then sat in jail 2 days before being booked in. Myself being prior law enforcement they set my bond at more than 10 times the standard for the charge. I was also held in a cell with a non working toilet, lights on 24 hours a day for a total of 10 days. No pillow, no blanket, I take prescription medications daily which was also not given. Alternative partial medicines were given about the 4th day in. I’m not sure what they were giving me but it was really messing with my mind and memory. I finally was able to make bond, but they wouldn’t release me with an ankle monitor costing an additional $300.00 a month.
Due to the case being placed on the major local television networks and news papers I lost my job, and my career. I then learned I wasn’t going to be able to afford an attorney. I also learned 2days after being in jail they went back to my house where they searched my man cave which is normally locked. They did not have a warrant, but they took all of my guns and ammunition. Also this same day the came to the jail and took my cellphone, which they still currently have. I have also been forbidden to return to my own home. I am currently staying with a friend, I since being arrested been served a protective order, and divorce papers. My wife’s brother works on the Police force, also I was told the other agency is under investigation for being corrupt etc.
At this point I am completely lost in all of this and its just been a few weeks now. Wife is now dating the main investigator of my case, ugh. I can not afford legal representation at this point and this is so not me. But I need help and prayers, anything anyone can help with will be greatly appreciated so I work on getting my life back. Thank you so much..🤗
