Alleged Girlfriend-Beating Senator Indicted

By

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]
