Post Strip Club Domestic Dispute (Calgary) – Charges Withdrawn

CC: s.266 – Assault, s.811 – Fail to Comply with Peace Bond

My client was bound by conditions of a Peace Bond, relating to a prior assault upon his wife, when he assaulted her again, thereby breaching his conditions.  At 2:00 am, one morning, my client returned to his residence, intoxicated, after a night out with friends at a strip club.  His wife got angry with him and the argument escalated to the point where my client smashed his phone on the floor, then grabbed her by the throat and began choking her, while he cursed and insulted her.  He took their money and told her he was leaving her.  She said she was going to call the police.  He told her if she called the police, she would never see him again.

Charges Withdrawn.  My client received a Conditional Discharge.
