The grandson of Shas spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef was under arrest Friday for allegedly assaulting an acquaintance as a result of a romantic quarrel over a woman, police said. Yonatan Yosef, 25, is suspected of spraying tear gas and otherwise threatening the victim during the brawl. Yosef denied the charges, and says that police were singling him out because of his grandfather and because he took part in street protests against the Gaza pullout. He was ordered placed under house arrest until Monday during a Friday remand hearing at the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court.
