65-year-old Michael Breton was involved in a domestic altercation with his wife, Annette Chevallier, at the Holiday Inn on Broadway on the 16th of December. The conflict started when Chevallier lost her ID and debit card on Broadway, which caused an argument that made Breton increasingly agitated. While the two were standing near the hot dog vendor at 8th Avenue North and Broadway, Breton demanded that Chevallier give him his lighter. This led to Chevallier throwing Breton’s lighter at his feet. Breton retaliated by squaring up with her and pushing her onto her back. Shortly after, they both returned to their hotel, where Breton continued to be verbally aggressive and abusive towards her. Officers spoke with witnesses at the hot dog vendor stand, and they confirmed that Breton put his hands on Chevallier, causing her to fall. When Officers talked to Breton, he denied having used any physical force on his wife. Breton was taken into custody and charged with domestic assault.
