A state Department of Corrections employee was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence over the weekend after his wife called Tacoma police to report they had been in a physical fight.

The incident occurred about 8:05 p.m. Saturday.

Police responded to the couple’s home in the 5200 block of South Orchard Street but the husband had already fled the scene. His wife sustained minor injuries and did not need to be taken to the hospital.

When he returned home hours later, officers returned to the house and took him into custody. Police said the husband is a non-commissioned DOC employee.

It’s unknown what sparked the fight.
