Police Report Reveals Jules Wainstein’s Ex-Husband Michael Wainstein Recorded Her Punching Him, Judge Appoints A Public Defender For Jules!

Jules Wainstein asked the court to appoint a public defender to help her fight the case where she is being accused of punching her estranged husband Michael Wainstein. According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a Florida judge found the former Real Housewives of New York City alum “indigent” and will allow her to use a public defender.

To be found “indigent” usually means a person is without financial resources to afford a lawyer on their own, reports the outlet.

The news comes after Page Six broke the story that Jules was arrested over the weekend after an incident with her ex Michael in Palm Beach County, Florida.

According to the police report via The Blast, Michael told police his ex-wife punched him and scratched his face during a custody exchange. The alleged fight went down while their two kids watched on.

Michael arrived to drop off the kids to Jules and started filming her over fears she would get physical. The two recently argued over his child support payments to her.

The police report says Michael started recording Jules during the incident. He says she took out a baseball bat but then put it down. Police reviewed the footage which say backed up his claims. They noted a red mark on Michael’s check and a small scratch on his nose. The report states Jules admitted to pulling out the baseball bat telling them, "I was angry" and "I smacked him."

Palm Beach County’s Sheriff took Jules into custody and booked her into jail for a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery. She was released on her own recognizance the next day.

Michael’s attorney, Morghan Richardson said that Michael is “exploring all of his legal options at this time.”

“This is a serious situation reflecting Ms. Wainstein’s increasingly reckless behavior that unfortunately took place in front of the kids,” Richardson told Page Six. “The children were released to Michael’s custody yesterday and he is most concerned about protecting them.”

The publication reports that Michael obtained a protective order against his estranged wife Jules.

The judge ordered Jules to stay away from Michael and only communicate for custody exchanges. She was ordered to not possess any weapons, she is scheduled to appear in court on March 16.
