Court documents show that on April 25, Chandler police received a call saying 44-year-old John Michael Bugenig was being verbally abusive toward his ex-wife.

The victim reported to police that she picked up Bugenig at a restaurant after he requested that she take him to his house because he was intoxicated.

Police say Bugenig received a cut to his eye and forehead.

Bugenig has been charged with aggravated assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
