LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas justice of the peace is being accused of physically abusing his wife and could face a charge of battery.
The wife of Justice of the Peace Tony Abbatangelo says he has been "choking and attacking" her for two years.
Las Vegas police interviewed Sue Abbatangelo after a Wednesday dispute at the couple's home. They submitted a report to the county prosecutor's office alleging one count of battery domestic violence against the judge.
The district attorney's office has not yet decided if it will file a criminal charge against the judge.
Tony Abbatangelo declined to comment. He has served as a justice of the peace since 1996.
