40-year-old Girlfriend of Former Texas Lt. Gov David Dewhurst, 74, is Arrested for Breaking his Ribs After she ‘Kicked, Scratched and Bit him’ During Two Vicious Arguments at Their Home

Leslie Ann Caron was charged with injury to an elderly person, a third-degree felony in Texas; Dewhurst, 74, called Houston police Tuesday. Caron allegedly kicked Dewhurst on May 13 during an argument over him not calling a business partner; she allegedly scratched and bit him days later. Caron made accusations that Dewhurst had physically hurt her in the past. Charges might have been a misdemeanor if Dewhurst had been under the age of 65, but the charges were elevated to a felony because of his age. Dewhurst served 12 years as lieutenant governor before losing his bid for a fourth term in 2014; he also ran for U.S. Senate in 2012 but lost in a primary runoff to Ted Cruz. Dewhurst was a powerful ally of Rick Perry, who was then the Texas governor.
