Graham Page, 46, pictured outside Bristol Magistrates' Court, has admitted assault
A desperate husband who saved his wife from taking her own life was too heavy-handed in his rescue attempt and has now admitted assault in court.
Graham Page found his wife Alexandra had left a suicide note at their home and dragged her to safety after finding her intoxicated and 'hysterical' in her car.
But his rescue got a bit 'out of hand' and he was reported to police for assault by someone who saw the incident in the Redland area of Bristol on December 14.
He was brought to Bristol Magistrates' Court, where he admitted assault and was given a 12-month community order including 100 hours of unpaid work.
The 46-year-old admitted that after pulling her from the car, he 'cuffed' her to the head when she was hysterical and dragged her along the ground by her clothes to get her home.
