CASTLE ROCK, Colo. -- A Douglas County jury in Castle Rock acquitted Secret Service agent Lon Garner on Wednesday on two counts of assault.
Lon Garner, 57, was accused of
choking his wife
during an argument about an affair.
In an affidavit, she said her husband
threatened to eliminate anyone who tried to ruin his career "when they wouldn't be expecting it."
. . .
The couple's 21-year-old son, Lon Garner Jr., a Navy petty officer, testified that he
saw his father choking his mother and that he punched his father and wrestled him to the ground.
