Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Coleman McAllister, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED.  Considered by May, P.J., and Schumacher and Badding, JJ.  Opinion by Badding, J.  (7 pages)

            Nathaniel McCory appeals the entry of a final protective order following Mara Budweg’s petition for relief from domestic abuse.  He argues the district court’s finding that he committed domestic abuse assault against Mara is not supported by substantial evidence.  OPINION HOLDS: We find the evidence insufficient to prove an assault.  We reverse the decision of the district court and remand for cancellation of the protective order and dismissal of Mara’s petition.
