Flowers, Red Lobster and bowling, judge rules

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A spat over forgetting to wish his wife a happy birthday landed a South Florida man in jail on domestic violence charges.

When Judge “Jay” Hurley heard the circumstances that brought 47-year-old Joseph Bray to bond court Tuesday, he issued a unique ruling.

Hurley ordered Bray to buy a birthday card and flowers for his wife before taking her to dinner at Red Lobster and bowling afterward. Hurley ruled the couple should begin seeing a marriage counselor immediately.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel (http://sunsent.nl/znDyEe) reported Hurley felt this was a “better resolution” because the incident was minor and Bray had no prior arrests. Bray’s wife told the judge she’s not afraid of her husband.

A police report indicated Bray pushed his wife during an argument but never hit her.
