Heated arguments can become criminal defense situations

The need for anger management is often portrayed in a comical light in television programs and movies, but in real life situations when anger or emotions take over, serious issues can arise. Sometimes, anger or emotions becomes physical contact, resulting in consequences such as assault charges or domestic violence charges.

For one New Hampshire man, an argument with his wife spiraled into a series of events that lead to criminal charges including simple assault, obstructing the report of an injury or crime and felony criminal restraint. According to reports, the issue began when the man's wife called her adult daughter seeking assistance. The wife reported that the man was out of control and drunk.

The daughter went to pick up her mother, but the man wouldn't let her in. In the meantime, the mother reportedly sneaked out of the home. As the daughter and mother were attempting to leave in a vehicle, the man allegedly ran from the home and began hitting the car. When his wife attempted to roll down the window to communicate with him, he allegedly reached in, grabbing her.

According to reports, the fighting went on, with some arguments taking place later in front of a church. Witnesses reportedly saw the man grabbing onto the vehicle later as well as the women left the scene. At one point, the man allegedly threw a phone across the room to keep one of the women from calling authorities.

At some point, the police were called and arrived on the scene to arrest the man. In such cases, where witnesses attest to at least some of the behavior related to the charges, criminal defense options must address such issues. Every person, no matter the evidence or the alleged crime, has a right to a defense.
