ARTESIA, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico man is facing a battery charge after police say he threw a beer car at a woman.
The Carlsbad Current-Argus reports Ernesto Erives was arraigned last week on a charge of battery against a household member following his arrest in Artesia, New Mexico, on June 6.
According to a criminal complaint, the 30-year-old Erives picked up a beer can out of a cooler and threw it at a woman.
Police say officers reported seeing swelling on the woman’s forehead.
Ervies has pleaded not guilty. It was unknown if he had an attorney.
