The 46-year-old estranged husband of Tamra Barney, star of the Real Housewives of Orange County, was arrested at 12:30 am Tuesday morning after she claimed he threw and hit her with a retractable dog leash.
“Apparently Simon went to his ex-wife’s home to return the dog he was watching,” Orange County Sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino tells PEOPLE. “According to the victim, he threw a retractable dog leash at her, she lifted her arm in a defensive move, and it struck her wrist.”
Radar is also reporting this morning that Tamra is planning to get a restraining order against Simon.
When asked to give a comment regarding the domestic dispute, Tamra said “I can’t talk about it right now, maybe later.” Tamra however nodded yes when asked is she planned of filing a restraining order.
In addition to Tamra’s court appearance, a “source” tells RadarOnline she plans of filing the restraining order sometime this week. Judging by the fact that Bravo cameras followed Tamra to the courthouse, it’s safe to assume we will be watching this drama unfold on the 6th season of the Real Housewives of OC.
