My husband of 4 years suffers from Bipolar and has had a long-standing alcohol and substance abuse history. My husband has been working with his psychologist for approx a year and had not had a drink since May last year. We have also been waiting for our local rehabilitation centre to make contact to have an assessment done for admission. I support my husband any way I can with his mental health illness as do my two sons (16 & 10), whom he is a stepfather to. The other night he had a relapse. The combination of alcohol and his medication fuelled a very angry verbal man, one we had never seen before. It was late at night and I had no one else to call for help to calm him down other than the police. Long story short, the police have made an application for a protection order based on us (my 16yo and me) telling them how angry he was with us and being quite verbally aggressive (not his usual character). I had explained his mental health issues, his alcohol and substance abuse and how concerned we were for his safety. They took him away to the watch-house for 4 hrs and released him on custody conditions (which he did not understand and came home only to be "arrested again"). At 3 am, the police served me with the protection order application and when reading the police statement recommending the magistrate put in place a full no contact at all for 2 years Domestic Violence Order outcome is incorrect. They have implied my son and I were concerned for our safety, that we were fearful of him and that there were previous Domestic Violence incidences that had not been reported. An incident did occur, however, most of the information in the report have been written wrong. It looks really bad for my husband and my intention was not for any of this to happen, I just wanted some assistance to calm him down and make sure he was ok. I want to be able to go to court tomorrow and tell the magistrate that they are about to possibly impose a full Domestic Violence Order based on false information in the police report. I have been told I am not able to change or ask for the protection order to be stopped. I want a voice in this and get the right message across as my husband is not a bad person and this was a one-off the incident.
