'Ice Road Truckers' Reality Star Arrested for Allegedly Beating Wife
A driver on History Channel series Ice Road Truckers was arrested early Friday morning for allegedly beating his wife in front of their young son, TMZ.com reports.
Gregory Boadwine was arguing with his wife when he "elbowed the victim in the arm," according to a police report obtained by TMZ.com.
His wife shoved him back, and he then grabbed her by the throat and shoved her into door in the kitchen. She then slapped him in the face.
The altercation ended once their 9-year-old son screamed at them to "stop fighting!"
Boadwine was arrested on a domestic battery charge at 12:30 a.m.
He is expected to remain in custody until facing a judge later Friday.
The next season of Ice Road Tuckers premieres on Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
