HOUSTON – A man faces charges after a fight with his wife and his father-in-law led to violence, officials said.

The incident happened in the 6600 block of Breen Drive in northwest Houston, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said in a tweet.

A husband and wife began arguing outside, Gonzalez said. The man reportedly assaulted his father-in-law during the fight. At one point, the woman got into a car to drive away. Her husband reached into the car and pulled her hair, causing the woman to lose control of the car and strike her husband with the car, pinning him between the car she drove and another vehicle nearby, according to officials.

Firefighters used extrication tools to free the man, officials said. He was transported to an area hospital and is expected to survive.

It’s unclear what caused the fight.

The woman stayed on the scene and cooperated with deputies.

The man, Dimas Romero-Santana, has been charged with two counts of assault, Gonzalez said in a tweet.
