ATLANTA - An Alabama federal judge accused of assaulting his wife at an Atlanta hotel has been released on bond.

Atlanta Police Department spokeswoman Kim Jones told FOX 5 News that 55-year-old Mark Fuller was arrested early Sunday morning after a reported fight with wife turned physical at the Ritz Carlton in Atlanta.

Police said his wife was treated at the scene and refused to be transported to a hospital. She received cuts to the head and mouth as well as bruises on her leg. Police stated Fuller did not have any signs of injuries.

Fuller told police his wife accused him of having an affair while he was in bed watching TV. He said she started to throw things at him including a drink glass. He told police he grabbed her hair to defend himself. He said he then threw her to the ground.

Police arrested him and booked him into the Fulton County Jail on battery charges.

Monday, Fuller appeared in a Fulton County courtroom. He was given a $5,000 bond and was ordered to stay away from his wife.

Fuller is a U.S. District Court Judge for the Middle District of Alabama in Montgomery. He resided over the bribery trial of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman and HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy in 2006.

His next court appearance is scheduled for August 22.
