A Granada judge was arrested, accused of domestic violence and immediately served a restraining order before being released pending trial.
But not happy with racking up a domestic violence charge, he has also been charged with resisting arrest when he was detained last week.
The incident took place on the outskirts of the city after the police received a call from a neighbour to say that the judge was physically assaulting his wife on the street.
Quite apart from a pending trial, he is also being investigated by The General Council of the Judiciary (GCJ) which is the constitutional body that governs the whole Judiciary of Spain, such as courts, and judges.
At the moment he is ‘off sick.’ and unavailable for press interviews.
Editorial note: the accompanying photo is of the Chairman of the GCJ, who will be heading the investigation, and is not, therefore, a photo of the accused.
