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.
