On Jan. 15, the victim told police he and Frankforter were both at his ex-wife's home three days earlier. Court documents state a confrontation ensued, and Frankforter allegedly pushed the man to the ground. Frankforter then hit the man with a metal pipe before being pulled away by the woman, according to court documents.

Deputies asked Frankforter about the incident while he was in the county detention center for unrelated warrants. Frankforter told them he did not assault the ex-husband with a weapon, but that the ex-husband had assaulted him.
