Elderly Florida man accused of domestic violence

Tensions can run high in any family -- no matter its demographics. No one gets along all of the time and fights are bound to happen. This time of year, the stress of the holidays can make things even worse in some families. If things turn physical, Florida police may have to get involved.Recently, a 76-year-old man was arrested by Florida police for domestic violence after an incident with his 77-year-old wife. According to police, the elderly couple got into a fight after the man's wife found him on an internet dating site.Following this discovery, police say that the woman slapped the man in the face after an argument. Police allege that the man responded by pushing his wife. As a result of the push, police say the woman fell to the ground and broke her hip.Following the incident, the man was charged with two counts of battering someone over the age of 65. These are felony charges.Domestic violence charges -- especially felony domestic violence charges -- should always be taken seriously. People have the right to explain their actions in court. By presenting their side of the story, people may be able to avoid some of the serious consequences of domestic violence including jail or prison time. Without the right defense in place, people may find that they are unable to see their children or live in their homes following a domestic violence arrest.
