Rep. Alan Grayson will not face charges after a marital spat devolved into accusations of domestic abuse earlier this month.
The Florida Democrat was accused by his wife, Lolita Grayson, of shoving her during an argument at her home. Grayson denied the allegation and cast doubt on his wife’s mental state.
On Friday, the Orange County Police Department announced it would not file charges against the congressman, according to Grayson’s office.
“Today the Orange County Sheriff’s Department confirmed what we have known all along: Congressman Grayson did nothing wrong. We are relieved that this ridiculous ordeal is over, and that the congressman can continue to focus on taking care of his family and serving his constituents,” said Grayson spokeswoman Lauren Doney.
