[FL] Deputy Pickney's wife assaulted trying to kids out of the house

Sarasota County sheriff's deputy Charles Pinkney was arrested and booked into the Manatee County Jail on a domestic violence battery charge after shoving his wife over the couch, reportedly as she had tried to get out of the house with the children. Pinkney's not in jail now and nobody's reporting whether he has to stay away from the home and family (does he?) or whether he's on leave (is he?). And as usual, nothing is known about the family's safety. Trying to get children safely out of a home where there is an angry man is an awful spot to be in - and all the more frightening if you're assaulted in the process. A lot more is involved than one 4-line article can embrace, I'm sure. The very short article in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune mentions that the incident happened Wednesday night, but not what day Pinkney was actually arrested or released - or how many hours(?) he had to stay in a jail.

(I think I'll look around and see if I can find anything on him as a chuck, chuckie, or charlie, and whether this is the only law enforcement agency he's worked with.)
