GALLUP, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico woman is faces charges that she beat her husband, forced him strip naked, and kicked him out of a motel room.

The Gallup Independent reports that 50-year-old Juanita Ramer was arrested last week for aggravated battery on a household member after police found her nude and injured husband, 57-year-old Andy Tahe, outside a Ranchito Motel room in Gallup.

According to police, Ramer told officers that she had become angry at Tahe early Friday evening when he went out. When he returned, Tahe said his wife hit him on the head with a bottle, made him take his clothes off, and then chased him out of the room.

Police found Tahe nude and with a bleeding head wound.

It was unclear if Ramer had an attorney.
