     A troubled former law enforcement officer is behind bars as the result of a domestic altercation Sunday at the home of the man’s former wife and five children, who were in the home at the time of the incident.

• Assault and battery with a deadly weapon.

• Child endangerment.

• Domestic violence in the presence of a minor.
