MARICOPA, Ariz. (AP) - A police officer from the city of Maricopa was arrested on allegations that he pushed his wife during a domestic dispute and caused her to suffer a wrist injury.

The police department for the city in Pinal County says 41-year-old Officer Joshua Boyd was booked on suspicion of assault, disorderly conduct and criminal damage charges.

The agency says Boyd pushed his wife during the dispute Sunday afternoon and caused her to fall to the floor and injure her right wrist.

Police also say Boyd assaulted his wife’s 14-year-old son as he tried to protect his mother.

The injuries to the boy and his mother were described as minor.

There was no phone listed for Boyd.

Boyd will be placed on paid administrative leave while an internal affairs investigation is conducted.
