A western Iowa man is in trouble for allegedly hitting his wife after she refused to help him shovel snow. Police in Council Bluffs say the unidentified 45-year-old man was arrested Wednesday, on a charge of domestic abuse-serious assault, after he allegedly struck his wife in the head with his chest and tried to pull her out of their home in an attempt to get her to help him shovel snow.
The woman complained of pain to her head and leg after the altercation, but she refused medical treatment. The incident occurred at around 12:30 P.M. According to police, the 44-year-old woman said she was in an argument with her husband about her “not doing work and being lazy around the home.” The husband allegedly admitted to arguing with his wife and putting his “hands on her.”
