A man was arrested earlier this month after he allegedly beat up his wife and threatened her with death.
Ruben D. Gallegos, 47, 950 La Gunita Road, was charged with aggravated battery against a household member, aggravated assault, abuse of a child, false imprisonment and interference with communications.
According to a criminal complaint, Gallegos packed his bags and said he was leaving his wife on Jan. 17. But he returned intoxicated around 5 a.m. the next day, saying it was his house and that he wanted her out. He reportedly ordered her not to take their son.
