An argument over a child left in a car seat led a 20-year-old Clovis husband to grab his 19-year-old wife by the hair Wednesday afternoon.
After arriving at the 800 block of West Manana and speaking to both the husband and wife, police determined the wife showed no physical injuries and both parties agreed she did not need medical attention. However, police arrested the husband on charges of battery on a household member based on his admission that he had grabbed her hair during the dispute.
