Nevada judge arrested for punching teen son in the mouth and head while driving, leaving him bleeding
Stefany Miley is now facing one count of battery domestic violence under her maiden name Stefany Tewell, according to court records
A Nevada judge was arrested by Las Vegas police for punching her teenager son in the mouth. Stefany Miley was arrested on a domestic violence charge post an incident which involved her 18-year-old son.
After a call from an attorney for her estranged husband Edward Miley, Clark County District Judge Stefany Miley was arrested. Stefany was arrested at around 11 pm on Saturday after the attorney telephoned the police late at night to report the incident which had allegedly turned violent and physical, as reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The couple is currently in the process of getting a divorce. Stefany's estranged husband Edward is a family law and defense attorney and sent a message he received from his son to Bruce Gale, who is one of the attorneys representing him in his own divorce. The teenager had written in a message forwarded to Gale, "Call me now."
"I need help. Mom punched me in the mouth and hit me in the head while I was driving. I [am] bleeding and need you to pick me up. She started screaming around the neighbors and tried falling on me to make it look like I was hurting her," the text further read.
Gale shared that he immediately called the police and reported the incident after talking to Edward. According to court records, Stefany is now facing one count of battery domestic violence under her maiden name of Stefany Tewell. Details of her arrest are not yet known.
An attorney who will be representing Stefany shared that he had not yet seen the police report about the incident and what actually took place. David Chesnoff shared, "We look forward to representing Judge Miley, who intends on vigorously defending herself against these mere allegations." Stefany will be due before a judge on January 22, 2019.
Edward chose to file for divorce citing "catastrophic health issues" and also requested spousal support. The attorney for Edward said that while he "loves his wife Stefany very much, the couple’s incompatibility is so vast that no chance of reconciliation exists."
The document also shares that Stefany had "conducted herself in such a manner, and taken certain actions, that are improper and inappropriate to the harm and detriment of Edward." This is not the first incident of domestic violence for the Mileys as in October 2009, Edward was arrested on a battery charge.
As reported by KTNV, a very heated argument resulted in Edward choking the judge as well as the couple's pet dog. Stefany was granted a temporary protective order against Edward and later filed for divorce. The couple got back together briefly only to file for divorce for the second time.
