Former 'Ice Road Trucker' Arrested for Beating Wife

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

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.

she did as much as he did. doesnt matter who starts it, if she committed domestic abuse, and in front of her child too, she, absolutely is guilty too, and must get the wrap too. they both are as guilty as one another. horrible example for their child. she should have left on the first elbowing, and called the police.

Ned, then it is time to get a new wife. If she is a monster in your face, I think a man can defend her off. Or at least put her outside and lock the door.

I understand that a lot of women hit men and think its fine but violence is unacceptable, period.

That being said, if a person twice my size grabbed ME by the throat, I would definitely hit them! You never know what that person may be capable of!

Grabbing someone by the throat and elbowing them is not "beating" them. Not saying what he did is right but don't exaggerate.

I have a feeling we don't have the whole story. If this is the tool that was threatening the one other guy, racing him up the hill, etc., then he has MAJOR anger issues. I remember hoping the ahole didn't have a family.

As a woman who lived through being a "battered wife" I have little time for those who abuse others, however there seems to be something wrong here.

From the way the story reads, it appears that he elbowed her in the arm, she then retaliated rather than walk away or give him some space to cool down, he retaliated, she then slapped him etc, so...why was he the only one arrested?

Abuse is not two people fighting, abuse has one agressor and one victim, to me this just sounds like a plain ol' fight.
And as previously mentioned by another poster, the child did not ask "daddy stop it" but rather he asked them both to "stop fighting".

Abuse is something that should be stamped out, however, as a woman who lived through it and survived it, it does make me furious when women claim abuse in situations when they themself play a part in a fight, and in many cases escalates it.
Abuse is real, it is horrid and a nightmare, it is NOT however a carte blanche means for any woman to get "one over" on her husband or to be used as a weapon by women against men.

WTF. weird, they were both fighting basically and it came to an end, why the hell call cops then and make problems. What did that help. It is obvious they are both with issues, they need to separate. Cops will solve nothing nor for her or the kid. If she doesnt want this she needs to get out of there and not become one of those wife that stick in a relationship "for the kid" and just complain all the time and keep shoving their stick into the hornets nest. Such stupidity.

The wife should be arrested as well. She ws attacking him as well in front of their child. Domestic violencce is emotionally & psychologicaly damaging to children whether it is mother on father or father on mother. C;early this child was a witness and told them to sopt fighting. It would not be surprising if this is not aregular occurenc in their relationship. the parents should be charged with child abuse. In some states they can.
