JWF: A news reporter is arrested for beating her husband:

TV news anchor in Santa Teresa, New Mexico was arrested for beating her husband.

Adrienne Alvarez, an anchor and reporter for NBC affiliate KTSM in El Paso, Texas, was arrested early Thursday morning on battery charges.

The 28-year-old reporter was in a fight with her husband early Thursday morning at their home in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, when Doña Ana County police got a domestic disturbance call.

Police determined that Alvarez was the ‘primary aggressor’ against her husband and arrested her on charges of battery against a household member, taking her to the Doña Ana County Detention Center.

Alvarez was released later Thursday morning on $1,000 bail.

Usually, these primary aggressor laws work against men in domestic violence cases but not in this case. It’s good to see that the police didn’t just assume the husband was at fault.

Sorry folks, I read the review. Some of the comments I see hear actually make his point. There is a lot of whining and victimhood. And name calling, sorry for the cognitive dissonance. Stop whining!!

They probably did assume that walking in, but she most likely overplayed her hand or was stupid enough to hit him when the cops were watching.

Question - are you going to have an updated version of your book and if you do, is there a way you could find lawyers (or lawyers find you) that would be willing to take men's case in situations where the woman is abusive. I ask this because you've moved to a position where you are garnering attention on this topic and by informing men that they have some opportunities for help, we can improve this situation.

Writing about problems is good, writing about solutions and even highlighting people willing to help is even better. I'm sure you'll meet some who are willing to help men as your interviewed.

Great idea, I think resources for men such as lawyers who can help would be a good update. For now, men's rights activist Glenn Sacks has a page where men can write in to be matched up with an expert for legal help here:
