Radio and TV personality Tom Martino faces multiple charges after being accused of punching his wife in the face Friday night.

An arrest report released by Denver police on Monday revealed new details about the incident. Martino, who calls himself "The Troubleshooter," was arrested on suspicion of disturbing the peace and assault.

Martino, 60, and his wife, 45-year-old Holly Martino, were driving near Interstate 25 and Auraria Parkway when they began arguing.

While the vehicle was stopped at a red light, Holly Martino, who was sitting in the passenger seat, opened her door and attempted to get out of the vehicle. Martino put his arm around his wife to keep her in the vehicle, according to the report.

When the light turned green, Martino drove away, and the two continued arguing. Martino then hit his wife in the face with a closed fist, causing a bloody nose, according to the report.

Holly Martino was taken to a hospital for her injuries. Martino was arrested around 11:15 p.m. and was released on $550 bail. He is scheduled to appear Jan. 16 in Denver County Court.

Martino declined to comment to The Denver Post on Monday.

In a Facebook post on Sunday, Martino wrote that the incident was a "foolish mistake."

"Holly and I remain deeply in love and committed to each other and to our family," Martino wrote. "We were both drinking too much. ... We were both inadvertently injured and we were not trying to hurt each other."

A Denver police spokesman declined to say whether Martino took a sobriety test.

Martino also was cited for harassment in October, following an incident at a Douglas County restaurant, according to court records.

That charge was dismissed by prosecutors.

Martino provides consumer advice on KHOW-AM (630) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekdays.
