Assistant U.S. Attorney in Kentucky arrested

LOUISVILLE, KY (KFVS) - An Assistant U.S. Attorney for the western district of Kentucky finds himself on the wrong side of the law.

Terry Cushing is jailed in Louisville and is charged with fourth degree assault.

An arrest report says Cushing shook his wife violently.

Emergency responders were called to the scene because the woman suffers from a heart condition.

Cushing faced similar charges after a 1997 divorce filing, but that case was later dismissed.
