Henry Ramos of Hollywood, Florida was arrested Saturday after he was accused of assaulting his wife during an argument, news sources indicate. Ramos, 46, was booked into the Broward County Jail on charges of domestic violence, assault, and resisting arrest with violence following the altercation. His bail bond was set at $6,750. It is not yet known whether he has hired a lawyer.
Reports say the incident occurred around 12:00 Saturday morning at the couple’s apartment, which is located off the 4900 block of Hollywood Boulevard. Ramos’s wife told police that Ramos arrived home late that night in an agitated and drunken state. For reasons not quite clear, the victim alleges that Ramos grabbed her head and threatened to harm her.
The argument escalated and the victim called police, reports say. Officers arrived on the scene shortly after. One responding officer described shouting issuing from the couple’s home. When the officers approached the door, they purportedly heard a man yell “Get the f*** out of here.” Shortly after, the victim opened the door for the officer. According to a police report, Ramos could be seen sitting and drinking in the home’s main room.
After taking the victim’s statement, the officers attempted to arrest Ramos, who apparently resisted. A police report indicates that officers were forced to strike Ramos after he approached them with a closed fist. The officer say they also had to use force to get Ramos into a police vehicle.
At some point during his arrest, Ramos allegedly said to the officers, “What? You never put your hands on a woman?” He also allegedly said, “I can touch my wife any way I want to.” Police booked Ramos into jail and during a court hearing, a judge ordered that he have limited contact with his wife.
