Simon Barney, ex-husband of The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney, was arrested this morning for suspicion of domestic battery after an altercation between Simon and Tamra.
Reports say Simon and Tamra had an argument when Simon came to drop off their dog. Simon allegedly threw the dog’s retractable leash, hitting Tamra in the wrist.
“Apparently Simon went to his ex-wife’s home to return the dog he was watching,” Orange County, California sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino told People. “According to the victim, he threw a retractable dog leash at her, she lifted her arm in a defensive move, and it struck her wrist.”
Sources say Tamra called the police. Simon faces arraignment today, September 21.
