"They interact with each other and he told her, 'Move out, or I'll run over you in my pick up.' And he did, he did," said Preza. "She was crying and really traumatized."

Reina has a swollen shoulder and arm along with a bruised face, according to Israel. She was seeing a doctor on Wednesday afternoon not far from their home in Fort Worth.
