Kathleen Ryan, Oakland County’s chief probate judge, has been charged with domestic assault.
A press release issued Thursday by the Wixom Police Department stated that Ryan, who was not mentioned to be a judge, allegedly committed assault and battery Nov. 24 against a man with whom she had a dating relationship.
The man appeared to have suffered minor injuries, police said, and he refused medical treatment at the scene.
Police officers reportedly responded to a 911 call on Wednesday afternoon, showing up to find a man and a woman. Wixom investigators referred the incident to the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office for review. On Thursday, Ryan was charged and arraigned on one count of domestic assault and battery.
