RHOSLC Star’s Ex Arrested for Domestic Assault: Shocking Details Unveiled!

Salt Lake City, Utah – “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” star Monica Garcia’s ex-husband, Mike Fowler, was reportedly arrested in 2021 for domestic assault, according to a police report obtained by the U.S. Sun. The report states that Fowler, 45, was charged with domestic violence assault, domestic violence in the presence of a child, and interruption of a communication device on March 5, 2021. Garcia had called law enforcement during the incident and reported that Fowler had hit her and she was hiding in a bedroom. A female voice could be heard yelling for him to get away from her.

When officers arrived, Garcia, 40, expressed fear of her ex-husband and claimed that she was afraid of what he would do if she disobeyed him. The argument that led to the assault allegedly began over people Garcia had been associating with, although the report does not provide specifics about who these individuals were.

The altercation between Garcia and Fowler occurred in front of one of their teenage children. The couple has three girls together, and Garcia also has a daughter from a previous marriage.

Fowler spent several days in a county jail and later pleaded guilty to assault in front of a judge. He was sentenced to 12 months of probation and ordered to pay $1,070 in fines.

Garcia finalized her divorce from Fowler on October 24, 2023, after being married for ten years. As part of the divorce settlement, she was awarded $2,636 a month in child support, $4,000 a month in alimony, and sole legal and physical custody of their four daughters.

The couple initially tied the knot in 2009 but filed for divorce four years later. They later reconciled before Garcia filed for divorce again in June 2023. Speculation about the reason for their split has been linked to Garcia’s former affair with her brother-in-law. However, Garcia recently revealed in an Instagram post that their divorce was due to Fowler’s alleged abuse. She expressed her hope to bring awareness to other women facing similar situations and let them know that they are not alone.

Garcia’s statement on social media shed light on the issue of domestic violence and offered support to women in abusive relationships. She emphasized that there is life after abuse and encouraged victims to seek help and create a better life for themselves and their children.
