Former 'Ice Road Trucker' Arrested for Beating Wife

6/3/2011 7:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of the drivers who starred on the History Channel show "Ice Road Truckers" last season was arrested early this morning in Florida for allegedly beating up his wife ... in front of her 9-year-old son.

According to the police report obtained by TMZ, 28-year-old Gregory Boadwine was having an argument with his wife when he "elbowed the victim in the arm."

Cops say the woman shoved Greg back ... but he retaliated by grabbing her by the throat and shoving her into a door in the kitchen.

The report says Greg's wife then slapped him on the left side of the face.

The fight finally came to an end when Greg's wife's 9-year-old son screamed at the couple to "Stop fighting" ... and the couple obliged.

Greg was arrested for domestic battery around 12:30 AM and hauled to a nearby station -- where he was booked. Boadwine is still in custody and expected to face a judge later this afternoon.

There appears to be violence on her part also, so why wasn't she arrested? Granted most domestic violence is meted out on women by men, but it seems to be one sided. It's OK for a woman to hit her husband and it not be deemed domestic violence?

To everyone that says she needed to be arrested too...she only slapped him after he had her by the throat..understandable...don't you think?? Sad to say but I have been in that exact situation and my first instinct was to slap him to snap him out of it!

That's hardly battery. I don't care if your male or female, if you're in an argument with somebody and you slap them you're daring them to hit you back. I say she got what she deserved. He should press charges on her, also.

I thought people wanted equal rights. If so, then why is it wrong for a man to beat a woman? But a woman can beat a man and it's fine?

Jeesus chriminy sounds like both of them should have been taken to jail. And seriously if you have an angry husband who you obviously know has a bad temper how many times are you going to hit him WIFE???? She is as Wack as him obviously.

HELLO I am Greg's sister in law...my sister is his wife.... HE DID NOT BEAT HIS WIFE. First of all she didnt call the cops on him the occurence happened 2 days ago, it was a shove from her and a shove from him....THATS ALL. Her ex husband heard about it and decided to call and fabricate the story. She did not make a report or press charges the state by LAW had to pick him because there was a child in the home even though he did not witness it. C'mon TMZ do yall not have anything better than a one time season reality person that yall want to get gossip on. I mean really its freaking Ice Road Truckers and it was for one season and its on the Discovery Channel.
