A Wichita Falls man remains in jail on a hefty bond after police arrest him for assaulting his wife.

Fifty-one year old Jesus Rivera is charged with aggravated assault family violence. Police say on Friday Rivera's wife called officers to the 3000 block of Burkburnett Road.

She reportedly told officers her husband had been drinking and they got into an argument when he wanted to drive home. Police say Mrs. Rivera told them her husband struck her with a 2x4 then punched her several times.

While emergency crews took Mrs. Rivera to United Regional for treatment, officers took her husband to the Wichita County jail where he remains tonight on a $100,000 bond.
