State senator Hiram Monserrate is still claiming that the alleged slashing of his girlfriend's face is all an innocent misunderstanding, that he merely fell while bringing her a glass of water and accidentally smashed it into her face. Amazingly, though, a Queens grand jury didn't buy that explanation, and decided to indict Monserrate on felony assault charges yesterday. [NYT]
