LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - Police in Las Cruces have arrested a man accused of pushing his wife from a moving vehicle.

They say 53-year-old Horacio Moreno is facing charges of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm and battery against a household member.

It was unclear Tuesday if he has a lawyer yet.

Police were dispatched Saturday night about an injured person and arrived to find a 37-year-old woman unresponsive with visible injuries to her face and body.

She was rushed to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say the woman was with friends at a home when her husband arrived and picked her up.

The woman says Moreno was armed with a handgun and as the vehicle approached an intersection, Moreno allegedly punched her in the face and pushed her out the passenger door.
