“According to the report, Leppan and his wife were involved in an argument about the state of their marriage at their home when Rose grabbed her face with his hands and pulled her close to his own face as he screamed at her. Leppan’s wife dialed 911 from their home phone but Leppan took the phone from her to prevent her from reporting the incident.
