A Dallas Police officer who was fired from the department in 2008, now stands accused of brutally beating his wife. Dallas police say 30 year Andrew Cortes and his wife began arguing while driving along Greenville Avenue.
They say Cortes began striking his wife in the face…before pulling over and repeatedly shoving her to the ground.
His wife suffered several bruises including an inch and a half long gash on her head.
He was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault.
Cortes was fired from the department after an investigation found he had lied about shooting at a fleeing vehicle that had actually stopped.
