Cascade County Sheriff Bob Edwards apologized Monday at a brief press conference.  Edwards was cited for misdemeanor partner or family member assault in June after police were called to a disturbance at a hotel.  The lawman was accused of pushing a woman into a TV stand.

He said in a statement [quote] “My sincerest apologies to my family, to the office of Sheriffs statewide, my staff and their families, and the citizens of Cascade County, for the incident that occurred on June 15th.”  Last week, Edwards and Helena City Attorney Thomas Jodoin entered a deferred prosecution agreement.  KTVQ.com reports the victim was allegedly uncooperative.

Sheriff Edwards will be required to complete 40 hours of counseling over six months with a focus on domestic disturbance interactions, and continued counseling that he’s currently receiving.  The citation will then be dropped.
