Richland County, SC (WLTX) - Richland County deputies have arrested a man they say physically assaulted his wife.
Officers say they got a call around 12 a.m. Thursday of a domestic situation at a home on Rice Terrace Drive. Officers say an argument between 29-year-old Reynaldo Byers and his wife turned physical when Byers began assaulting the woman. Investigators also say he prevented her from calling for help.
Instead, the couple's 8-year old son went to his neighbor's house and called for help.
Officers charged Byers with criminal domestic violence.
