Billy Graham's Daughter Arrested for Allegedly Abusing Husband
The Associated Press ^ | Jul 8, 2005 | Anon

Posted on 07/08/2005 5:10:26 PM PDT by Pharmboy

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Evangelist Billy Graham's daughter was arrested and charged with domestic abuse after witnesses told police she choked her husband in a parking lot, authorities said. Virginia Graham Foreman, 59, spent a night in jail after the July 1 confrontation outside a shopping center, police said. She was charged with misdemeanor domestic abuse and released the following day.

Three witnesses told police that Foreman pushed her husband and grabbed him by the throat, authorities said.

A Volusia County judge who presided over Foreman's first court appearance said Chad Foreman told police that witnesses had "just misunderstood what was going on between them."

No one answered the phone at the couple's home on Friday.

Billy Graham, 86, concluded a three-day revival meeting in New York City last month that he indicated could be his last.

She found the Viagra prescription.

It was a year old with refills, and she didn't know about it.

If he stays with her it will be a real mistake. No doubt she will strangle again.

Florida now fits into the media's template of things to hate.

After all, we elected Bush in 2000.

"She found the Viagra prescription."

It was a year old with refills, and she didn't know about it.

You mean when he said; "Honey I can't see you." That didn't give her a clue? :-)

If it were me, know what I'd have said right after the choking: "Alright, witch, you want your teeth back? Pick them out of my knuckles."

Doesn't sound like her. I went to school with her in the dark ages at a private Christian school in central Florida. She was very reserved and had class...

Of course, things change....

Exactly.
A woman getting hurt isn't funny but when a guy gets hurt (not seriously hurt, of course) its funny. Thats why the 3 stooges are all guys.

Why was she arrested if her husband protested it?

If he didn't press charges, why arrest her?

Strange.

"She was very reserved and had class... "

By now you must know women have different personalities when enjoying the "shopping experience". Just go to a mall local to you to buy the ONE item you need. And walk around with the purpose of looking into the eyes of the women you pass by for half an hour. You will see for yourself.

She looks really sad.

I read the arrest thing on smokig Gun. As she was arrested she showed the officer a big bruise on her thigh and the ending was cut off.

maybe they slug each other alot.

But she looks sad.

First off, if I'm man enough to start a fight with a man, I'm man enough to finish it.

Second, if this particular scenario ever did happen in this house, Xena's Guy would be too embarrassed to file.
