Babylon Town Board member arraigned in assault of fiancée

BABYLON -

Babylon Town Board member Lindsey Henry was arraigned Wednesday morning after allegedly assaulting his fiancée in his Oak Beach home earlier this week.

According to court documents, Henry threw a "necklace containing a sea glass pendant" that struck his fiancée in the forehead and caused "lacerations, swelling, redness, substantial site pain and headache."

Babylon Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer said "domestic violence is a very serious allegation." 

"I've lived through that myself personally, so I know what kind of impact it has on all family members," said Schaffer. 

Henry, a 50-year-old father of two young girls, surrendered himself to the 1st Precinct Tuesday and was held overnight.

News 12 has also learned that Henry was arrested on an assault charge in Massachusetts on July 4. Henry was set to go to trial on that charge, but it was dismissed after officials said the victim would no longer cooperate.
