An argument over the 2012 election led to a domestic battery charge for an elderly Hollywood man who struck his wife after yelling at her "about Obama and Romney," police said Wednesday.
Schwartz's wife told police the two had gotten into a verbal argument about "politics" and she ran away when he started yelling at her about "Obama and Romney," the report said.
"I fell in the grass and maybe hit my face," the woman told officers, according to the report. Officers noted in the report that she had redness and swelling on the left side of her face.
She refused to fill out a complaint affidavit but police arrested Schwartz anyway, the report said. He was being held on $1,000 bond Wednesday, and it was unknown whether he has an attorney.
"You shouldn't talk about politics sir, you really should not," Judge John Hurley told Schwartz.
Hurley ordered him to have only telephone contact with his wife and to stay 500 feet away from here. He was also not allowed to possess any guns or ammunition.
"I love this woman more than my own life," Schwarz said.
