SEATTLE -- Washington state authorities say a man shoved his wife from a moving car on a highway and later attacked a state trooper.
The Washington State Patrol said troopers responded Sunday morning to a report of a woman being thrown from a vehicle on I-90, about 70 miles southeast of Seattle.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported that troopers found the woman and sent her by ambulance to a hospital. The woman's condition was unknown and it was unclear how fast the car had been moving.
The patrol said that a trooper later pulled the man's car over near Snoqualmie Pass. He was taken into custody and placed in the back seat of the patrol car. But the man broke out the patrol car window, climbed out and attacked the trooper.
The patrol said the man was finally subdued after a scuffle.
