Dwyer was arrested on Thursday for a domestic violence incident that took place back in July.

According to police records, the incident involved Dwyer trying to kiss his wife and remove her clothing. However, she told Dwyer to stop multiple times and even bit his lip to prevent his advances. Police say Dwyer responded by head-butting his wife and ultimately fracturing her nose.

Dwyer is facing charges of: one count of aggravated assault causing a fracture, one count of aggravated assault involving a minor, one count of assault, two counts of criminal damage, and one count of preventing the use of a phone in an emergency.
