The UN-enablers of Danbury speak out against a man who should had resigned as Chairman of the Democratic Town Committee the moment he sobered up after his alleged brutal night of alcohol-induced rage against his wife and mother of his children.
According to an incident report, police were called to the Eriquez home shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday. Eriquez had come home drunk, the report said, and he and his wife began arguing over money.
When his wife tried to call police, Eriquez chased her down, grabbed her cell phone and threw it down the hallway, the report said. She was eventually able to retrieve the phone, lock herself in a bedroom and call 911, police said.
The victim told police her face felt sore where she had been punched and both her arms felt bruised. The arresting officer noted that she had a red mark and swelling on her nose and forehead, but she told police she did not want medical attention and declined to speak with a domestic violence advocate.
Eriquez was too drunk to give a statement, according to the police report. He was escorted by police to a relative’s home in the city and told not to return to his home or have contact with his wife.
