Lousy shot, should've hit her face. Now you are being arrested for hitting your wife on the wrist with a dog leash. Geez...What's next?

What the ...? How does throwing a dog leash and accidentally hitting someone on the wrist (the WRIST, for crying out loud!) constitute domestic violence?!!!

I don't doubt that Simon has a bad temper when things don't go his way, that being said, she called the cops over that??

According to Radar, he threw a dog leash and it accidentally hit her. I mean come on, who in the world would throw a dog leash at someone if they wanted to hurt them? But it was enough for Tamra to know she could get him arrested. It's sad.
Save domestic violence arrests for people who really do it.

Hit her on the wrist with a death-inducing dog leash? How much more violent can you be? May as well have set her on fire. Give to her one billion dollars.

women... the downfall of every man. They take the best of you and leave you with the remains of what used to be you, but no longer recognize as a sad shell of your former self. There are FEW good women, and even less good men. All women want is attention, put a camara in from of them and its over, just goes to show the amount of self esteem in them. Guys, be happy with yourselves, save your money, invest in your future, don't get lured by women, don't get married (if you must get a rock solid pre-nup), and don't have kids (if you must, make sure it is the last thing you do).

Well maybe the dog leash was for a big dog - and those can be chain linked and heavy - therefore inflicting major bodily injury. Until we know the facts, we shouldn't judge.
All we know is he is controlling and she is too wild. They shouldn't have been married because they're in two different places in their lives. I feel bad for their kids.
