    According to a Miami-Dade Police arrest affidavit, Hernandez and his wife had gotten into an argument over their son when he "became irate and proceeded to grab her by the neck."

    Hernandez's wife, a Miami-Dade Police officer, wasn't able to breathe but was able to push his hand away from her, the affidavit said.

    She sustained visible bruising and red scratches to her neck area, the affidavit said.

    Hernandez appeared in court later Monday where his bond was set at $2,500. He was also ordered to stay away from his wife.

    He later posted bond and left jail without speaking with reporters.

    The couple has been living together for about two years and had just gotten married three months ago, the affidavit said.

    Hernandez made headlines in 2007 when he made a miraculous recovery after being shot in the head during a routine traffic stop. The suspect who shot him was later found guilty of attempted murder.

    He made news again last year after he shot a homeless man during a confrontation in Miami Lakes after the man became aggressive toward Hernandez's family, police said.

    The man survived and police said Hernandez had exercised his legal right to use his firearm.
