FRAMINGHAM — Former Marlborough City Councilor and former state legislator Steven Levy was arraigned Monday in Framingham District Court on charges he assaulted his girlfriend outside a Framingham restaurant.
According to a report filed in court by investigating police officer Eduardo Rivera, on May 11 at about 2 a.m. the woman reported that a domestic assault and battery took place at the Chicken Bone Saloon on Waverly Street.
According to police, she said she confronted Levy after observing him after closing hours with her friend. The woman confronted Levy, who she said became "enraged" after she reached for a cellphone and ATM card in Levy's pocket.
The booking report states that Levy "did grab her by her shirt and shook her violently, then he threw her to the ground."
Levy pleaded not guilty Monday to assault and battery, and was released on personal recognizance, according to court records. A pretrial conference is scheduled for June 17.
Levy, 48, served as an at-large city councilor from 2006 to 2011. He represented the 4th Middlesex District after winning the seat in 2010, but lost his 2012 reelection bid.
His 2012 campaign website lists him as being married with two daughters.
The alleged victim, a Framingham woman, told police she had been dating Levy since January.
Levy's lawyer, Daniel J. Cappetta of Natick, declined to comment.
