The couple allegedly argued about separation agreements in the restaurant and the parking lot.

Police say they did a thorough investigation, including interviews with people involved and surveillance video.

Police found Brenda Morse's allegations were inconsistent.

State police are still investigating allegations of abuse by Shawn Morse.
