SUTTON man Clyde Watson was cleared of assaulting his ex-wife after a trial before Ely magistrates on Thursday.
Jane Watson claimed that Watson turned up at her Soham home, ignoring a court order to keep away.
He demanded the return of some garden tools, and she was shocked and scared. She said he threw a phone, grazing her leg. When she picked up the phone, Watson grabbed the top of her left arm and held it tight, causing a bruise.
Watson, 45, of Darby's Yard, admitted that he went to Jane Watson's Eastern Avenue home on April 24.

He spoke to her solicitor on the phone, and as he passed it to her, it dropped to the floor, and she picked it up. "I never touched her, I just got in the car and drove off," he said. Just days after the visit, Watson gave his ex-wife a lift home from Cambridge, he added.
Presiding magistrate Susan Thompson said the photo of a bruise supplied to the court by Mrs Watson was inconsistent with the claim that her ex-husband held her arm.
