ELLENSBURG, Wash. (AP) — The Washington State Patrol says a man shoved his wife from a moving car on a highway, and later fought with a state trooper who stopped him down the road.

The car was on the shoulder, traveling about 15 mph, on Interstate 90 about 70 miles east of Seattle. The woman suffered minor injuries in the Sunday incident.

Sgt. Kiley Conaway says it was a domestic dispute.

A trooper who stopped the suspect down the road put him in the patrol car. The man broke through a window and fought with the trooper who eventually subdued him. The man was treated at a hospital for facial cuts and booked into the Kittitas County Jail in Ellensburg for investigation of assault.
