OPD: Man arrested after pushing wife out of moving vehicle

The Odessa Police Department charged a man Thursday after he reportedly pushed his common-law wife out of a moving vehicle.

Police responded to the incident on Dec. 10 after the 32-year-old complainant told OPD she had been assaulted by her common-law husband, 32-year-old Luis Abraham Tarango, according to an OPD news release.

After Tarango and his wife reportedly got into an argument, Tarango opened the passenger door and pushed his wife out of the moving vehicle, the release stated.

The complainant was taken to MCH with serious bodily injury and sustained injuries on her upper left arm and right knee due to the incident, the release said.

A warrant was issued for Tarango and he was apprehended by the Department of Public Safety during a traffic stop Thursday and charged by OPD with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony, the release stated.

Jail records show Tarango was taken to the Ector County Detention Center Thursday and has a bond of $50,000.
