Wife of Md. Sen. Brinkley files request for protective order

October 30, 2008

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- A Republican state senator from Frederick County has agreed to immediately move out of his Mount Airy home following allegations by his wife that he pushed her on a bed, then choked her when she got up.

The agreement Thursday followed a request for a protective order filed Tuesday on behalf of Sallie Brinkley, wife of Sen. David Brinkley.

Under the agreement, Sen. Brinkley is consenting to the protective order without admitting that any abuse occurred. Both parties agreed not to threaten, harass or abuse the other.

Sallie Brinkley will have custody of the couple's two minor children, a 16-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy. The senator will have visitation rights.

Frederick County Sheriff's deputies responded to domestic difficulties at the couple's home this week and in May. Neither visit resulted in charges.
