A Kentucky police officer is facing multiple charges for assaulting his wife and a man who was trying to defend her on Sunday.
The Courier Journal reported that Louisville Metro Police Officer Jonathan Osborne’s wife, Sharon, told deputies that she had been driving her husband home from a Super Bowl party in Indiana when he “suddenly became very angry and punched her in the right side of the face.”
According to a probable cause affidavit, the assault caused Osborne’s wife to swerve and crash into a tractor outside of Ray’s Lawn and Garden Center. That’s when Louis Mossey and Victoria Wimp, who happened to be driving behind the couple, pulled over to provide assistance.
The document said that Osborne snapped at Victoria Wimp, telling her to shut up when she asked if the couple was hurt.
Louis Mossey recalled that Osborne was still beating his wife after the crash.
“He said Mrs. Osborne was on her hands and feet trying to retrieve some papers when Mr. Osborn kicked Mrs. Osborne in the head in what was described to me as a ‘football-style’ kick, causing Mrs. Osborne to fall backwards. Mr. Mossey then said Mr. Osborne moved over top of Mrs. Osborne and tried to choke her out,” Clark County Sheriff’s Deputy Barret Cook noted in the affidavit.
Mossey admitted to police that he struck Osborne to stop him from attacking his wife. Sharon Osborne later told deputies that Mossey had held her husband down until help arrived.
Sharon Osborne was treated for a possible broken arm and other injuries after being transported to Clark Memorial Hospital.
Officers described Osborne as “very intoxicated” and combative. They said that he tried to spit at officers and kick out the window of a patrol car.
Osborne was charged with aggravated battery, domestic battery, battery, resisting law enforcement, criminal recklessness and public intoxication. He was being held at the Clark County jail in lieu of $30,000 bond.

Elijah Cummings’ widow reveals to The View that Trump’s ‘minions’ bombarded family with death threats: ‘It undermined his health’
The widow of Rep. Elijah Cummings revealed to "The View" that President Donald Trump's attacks motivated his supporters to bombard their family with death threats.
Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, who's running for her late husband's seat in Maryland, said she hoped to build on his legacy as a champion of civil rights and fight back against Republican attempts to limit access to voting.
"We felt like this was our zero moment as a nation, that we have to make sure that we're all on the battlefield fighting for our future, and so while it does not look good in terms of President Trump and the Republicans," she said. "What they're doing to try to take us back 100 years in this country, the fact of the matter is that people are rising up all across the country. They are saying that we will not be oppressed, you will not take our democracy away from us. We have hordes of women who are running to take office, we have young people who are standing up and speaking out."
Kellyanne Conway stumbles after getting fact checked in real time on Fox News
Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Monday appeared taken aback after getting fact checked in real time on Fox News.
During an interview with Fox News' Sandra Smith, Conway once again echoed President Donald Trump and complained about how unfair the impeachment process has been.
Conway then slammed Senate Democrats for wanting to call witnesses to testify at Trump's impeachment trial.
"Look at what happened in the House, the Republicans, the president was denied calling his own witnesses," Conway falsely claimed, as House Democrats did allow some witnesses who were requested by House Republicans to testify. "That is a complete disgrace!"
