Wife of US Rep. Alan Grayson accuses him of assault; he says she attacked him

Already embroiled in a contentious divorce, U. S. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., is now accused of assaulting his wife while attempting to visit their children Sunday.

A highly redacted police report obtained by the Orlando Sentinel contained few details, but the newspaper reported that one of Grayson’s staffers, Juan Lopez, was with congressman at the time of the incident.

A judge granted Lolita Grayson a temporary protective injunction after she suffered bruises on her leg and shoulder, according to the Sentinel.

Grayson’s office issued a statement denying all allegations, calling the incident a private personal matter. He was not arrested and is not facing any charges, but the Orange County Sheriff’s Office is conducting a domestic violence investigation, according to the Sentinel.

“Congressman Grayson firmly denies Ms. Grayson’s frivolous accusations,” the statement said, according to WESH.com. “Witnesses at the scene during the time in question also reject Ms. Grayson’s version of events as an outright lie. Sadly, it was Ms. Grayson who physically attacked the Congressman as he attempted to visit with his children. He did not respond to Ms. Grayson’s violent assault.”

In the statement, Grayson said his wife’s behavior has become “increasingly erratic” since filing for divorce, and that he is “deeply concerned by her recent behavior and is profoundly pained by her accusations.”

The injunction, which bars Grayson from contacting his wife or children, is in effect until the congressman’s next court appearance, March 20.

Hey, wait a minute! Gay hairdresser refuses to cut NM governor’s hair and that’s okay?

Editors Note: A previous version of this story had Grayson as an R-Fla. He is definitely a Democrat! The error has been fixed.
