A TV news anchor in Santa Teresa, New Mexico was arrested for beating her husband.
Adrienne Alvarez, an anchor and reporter for NBC affiliate KTSM in El Paso, Texas, was arrested early Thursday morning on battery charges.
The 28-year-old reporter was in a fight with her husband at about midnight Wednesday at their home in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, officials said.
She was then arrested on suspicion of battery against a member of her household and booked at the Doña Ana County Detention Center.
Alvarez was released later Thursday on $1,000 bail.
Calls to Alvarez’s news station were not immediately returned Friday afternoon.
‘We are aware of the arrest but will wait for more details before making any other comments,’ Gary Sotir, general manager of KTSM/KDBC told the El Paso Times yesterday.
Alvarez has been a reporter at the station since 2007. In 2011 she married her husband Hazael.
She has won numerous awards for her reporting, including a 2009 Emmy. She was also voted by What’s Up El Paso as the Best Newscaster Under 40 for 2011.
On her station profile, Alvarez says that in her time off she likes ‘dancing, a good game of Scrabble and spending time with her family.’
