Tim Donaghy’s Wife Files for Restraining Order

The estranged wife of former NBA referee Tim Donaghy is seeking a restraining order after accusing him of verbally and physically abusing their children.

Kimberly L. Donaghy filed for the court order against Tim Donaghy, who was charged in the NBA betting scandal. A hearing on the protective order is scheduled for Tuesday.

The restraining order request was filed Monday, days after Manatee County sheriff’s deputies were called to the couple’s Bradenton home because they were fighting. [SLAM! Sports]
