A felony if convicted.

It's a real shame to hear that. He's ridden for us before and I always liked him in the brief moments I was around him. If the article is to be believed, it was not a single moment of rage, though, it went on for a little bit if he broke the phones and strangled her also. Pity.

Crazy stuff (and not in a good way) to be sure and hopefully the best outcome for all will come from it.

Wow. :( I donated a painting last year to the Robby Albarado Foundation. Incredibly disappointing.

He's just trying to let racing keep up with baseball, football and basketball. :D Those guys get arrested all the time.

Spousal abuse is a very serious crime and I hope that in his case, if convicted, the punishment fits the crime but more importantly that he gets the help he needs and that his wife receives support and therapy to deal with being a victim.

I would fully expect him to plead not guilty. At least one of the charges is a felony.

rustbreeches, DV is not limited to spouses.

But in this case, it was his wife, ergo the term spousal abuse.

I hope this was the first and last time she let him do this to her. So many vics go back to the abuser
