Dr. Wendell Allan Wall, 64, of Key West, Florida, was arrested on October 31 after he allegedly punched his wife, Dr. Denise McSherry, 49, during a heated argument at their home. The doctor faces one count of domestic battery. He was booked into Stock Island county jail and released later that evening without having to post bail. The press did not name an attorney for him.
According to the arrest report, the alleged incident occurred at the couple’s Jamaica Drive home. The wife told police that her husband pushed her off a bed after he became angry over an issue involving their pets. She said her husband then came after her and pushed her a second time.
When she tried to leave the room, her husband allegedly hit her in the face, giving her a bloody lip, and “continued to yell at her,” wrote Officer Thaddeus Calvert in his report. The wife reportedly armed herself with a kitchen knife and locked herself in a bedroom to wait for police.
