Atlanta Police said, “On August 9, 2014 at aproximately10:47 pm, Zone 5 units received a call at 181 Peachtree Street (Ritz Carlton). Officers spoke to the victim, who stated she was assaulted by her husband, Mark Fuller. Officers observed injuries to the victim. She was treated on scene by Grady EMS but refused to be transported to the hospital. Mr. Fuller was not injured.”

Fuller has faced allegations of domestic abuse before. The Reporters Committee for the Freedom of the Press reported in 2012 that a Montgomery circuit judge sealed Fuller’s divorce records. The divorce file is, “wrought with accusations of domestic violence, drug abuse and the judge’s alleged affair with his court bailiff,” according to the Reporters Committee.
