Washington man threw wife from car on highway, attacked trooper: Police
(CBS/AP) SEATTLE - Washington state authorities say a man was arrested over the weekend for allegedly shoving his wife from a moving car on a highway and later attacking a state trooper.
The Washington State Patrol says troopers responded Sunday morning to a report of a woman being thrown from a vehicle on Interstate 90, about 70 miles southeast of Seattle.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports that troopers found the woman and sent her by ambulance to a hospital. The woman's condition was unknown and it was unclear how fast the car had been moving.
The patrol says that a trooper later pulled the man's car over near Snoqualmie Pass. He was taken into custody and placed in the back seat of the patrol car. But the man allegedly broke out the patrol car window, climbed out and attacked the trooper.
The patrol says the man was finally subdued after a scuffle.
