Trask was accused of assaulting his wife at their Kalamazoo-area home in July. She had lacerations on her head and blood on her chest, arms, and hand, sheriff’s investigators wrote.
“I take full responsibility for my actions which caused pain and suffering to my wife and to my family,” Trask said.READ MORE: Ribs RnB Music Festival Kicks Off This Weekend In Downtown Detroit
Heather Foulke said she told a sheriff’s deputy that they had left a hotel party because Trask was “acting weird.” She believes he may have been drugged.
Trask got credit for two days in jail and will serve no additional time in custody. He lost his job with the FBI after the incident.MORE NEWS: Judge Says Michigan Gov. Whitmer Won't Have To Testify In Abortion Lawsuit
