MIAMI (AP) - A former sheriff's deputy who recovered from a shot to the head during a traffic stop in 2007 now faces domestic battery charges in Miami.
The Miami Herald ( ) reports 33-year-old Maury Hernandez is accused of trying to strangle his wife, a Miami-Dade police officer, on Sunday.
On Monday, a judge allowed Hernandez to leave jail on $2,500 bail. He was ordered to stay away from his wife but can visit their baby once a week at his parents' house.
Hernandez was shot in the head on Aug. 8, 2007 after he stopped a motorcyclist who had sped through several stoplights. Doctors say he made a near-miraculous recovery but he was forced to retire from the Broward Sheriff's Office.
He is charged with battery and domestic violence.
