Leyritz has been charged with domestic battery after police responded to his Davie home early this morning after receiving reports he had allegedly battered ex-wife Karrie, according to a police report from the Broward County Sheriff's Office.
According to the report, Leyritz attacked Karrie after the two had a dispute over money related to child support.
Leyritz denies attacking his ex-wife, instead claiming that she intentionally injured herself to blame it on him.
The former utility man is awaiting trial on DUI manslaughter charges stemming from a fatal 2007 crash in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
