Hard-Hitting NBC Reporter Arrested For Beating Her Husband

Posted by on Aug 02, 2013 at 5:36 pm

She doesn’t just report the news, she also stars in it.

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 early Thursday morning at their home in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, when Doña Ana County police got a domestic disturbance call.

Police determined that Alvarez was the ‘primary aggressor’ against her husband and arrested her on charges of battery against a household member, taking her to the  Doña Ana County Detention Center.

Alvarez was released later Thursday morning on $1,000 bail.

    Where is the video of a fellow reporter sticking a mike in her face asking for a comment? Bet there’s not one. If asked for a comment, I’ll bet she’d say that standard line all accused journalists like to say, “No comment.” Where’s the mug shot? The hypocrisy of the press.

    If it weren’t for the headline, this wouldn’t be a story. But what a headline!

    He’s lucky it was Texas. Many states automatically arrest the male partner regardless of who called or what was actually done.

    Everyone loves to give after they have plenty but the bottom line is people work for themselves and 9 out of 10 spouses work. She can’t do anything about no fault or 50/50 split divorce laws but Niccolo’s Machiavelli noted that people remember who ripped them off forever. If I had a pair I would play with them all day. Women don’t have a sense of humor unless their dykes. More women need to find out the war against women is a war on men, family, and society as a whole.

    She’s lucky. Likely her husband showed great restraint and didn’t deck her. Too many people become abusive or take risks because they don’t perceive any downside to their behavior. An important feedback loop has been severed.

    Oligonicella…She works in TX, buy lives in NM.

    How soon will she have to surrender her firearms?

    American law enforcement policies on domestic violence over the last 20 years have been, arrest the male first, and ask questions later. (In fact they now get federal pork bloating dollars for male arrest statistics, which in some cases give a financial incentive to pervert the course of justice and arrest an innocent man instead of the violent female).
    But over the last 3 or 4 years they are starting to intercept womens violence which is a good sign; federal pork bloating dollars or no pork bloating dollars, intercepting violence is part of their job description.
