POLICE were called to Premier Michael Misick’s home to break up a brawl which left his wife LisaRaye McCoy needing hospital treatment for bite wounds.
LisaRaye and Michael Mossick were last night involved in a violent confrontation at the Premier of the Turks & Caicos’ mansion.
According to reports the separated couple had the fight in front of a number of other government officials.
Missick was later treated for bites and both have since filed reports against the other.
LisaRaye is currently in TCI to negotiate a divorce settlement but rumours suggest that Missick barred her from staying at the Premier’s mansion.
UPDATE: Lisa releases a statement 08/14/08 3:00 pm
It is with great sadness that I have to announce that my husband and I have separated.
Last night, Wednesday August 13, 2008, an attempt was made by and on behalf of my husband to first prevent my entry into our home and then, later, to make me leave our home by force.
It was necessary for me to receive medical treatment for injuries suffered and in relation to those injuries I shall continue to assist the police force with its enquiries.
Whilst it is my sincere wish to avoid unnecessary conflict, I shall not be intimidated, nor shall those individuals whose job it is to protect and represent me.
I ask that my privacy be respected in these difficult times and I believe that the people of the TCI will understand and support my wish to receive the necessary independent representation from the legal counsel of my choosing. I hope that, in time, the TCI government will come to share that view.
Although I have always been a supportive wife even in light of the very serious allegations currently pending against the Premier, there are limits even for me.
I continue to have the utmost respect for the people of the TCI who have always shown me kindness and support. I vow to continue my work amongst the people of Turks and Caicos Islands.
Until recently I had hoped that I would be able to continue to assist my husband during what will undoubtedly be difficult times ahead for him. I do not wish to have to add to his difficulties.”

Well at least she didn’t use any Ronnie Hoe quotes from Player’s Club! LOL
