"My husband had a little bit of alcohol and he's going crazy," says Rivas, whose identifying information is redacted from the audio recording provided to NJ Advance Media.
"Your husband is drinking and you're in a dispute with him?" the dispatcher asks.
"Yeah. He's drunk," Rivas responds.
Rivas attended Familia's hearing on Nov. 10, where Judge John DeSheplo lifted a restraining order that prevented Familia from having any contact with his wife. Familia and Rivas walked out of the court house arm-in-arm following the conclusion of the hearing and departed together in a white SUV.
The charge against Familia is the equivalent of a misdemeanor and carries a maximum penalty of six months in jail, a $1,000 fine and two years of probation. He is due back in court on Dec. 15.
