BOSTON — The brother-in-law of former Democratic Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has been arrested for violating a restraining order in an ongoing criminal case.

The Boston Globe reports that Bernard Sigh, 66, was arrested Friday on a Milton police warrant.

According to the Norfolk district attorney’s office Sigh tried to contact the victim in a domestic assault case.

Sigh pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Quincy District Court Friday afternoon.

A judge revoked Sigh’s bail, and he will be held for 90 days. He’s due back in court on May 4. Sigh’s attorney, Jose Sanabria, declined to comment to the Globe.

In February, Sigh was indicted by a grand jury indicted Sigh on kidnapping, rape, and assault charges.
