Ice Road Trucker Accused of Beating Wife—in Front of Their Son

Gregory Boadwine, Ice Road Truckers History Channel

Ice Road Truckers alum Gregory Boadwine is cooling off behind bars in Florida.

The reality-TV hauler, who appeared on the fourth season of the History Channel hit, was tossed in a Florida jail cell this morning for allegedly getting physical during a fight with his wife.

The 28-year-old trucker and wife Crystal were yelling at each other, when, according to a police report obtained by TMZ, he "elbowed the victim in the arm."

According to police, Crystal shoved him back, and he then grabbed her by the throat and shoved her into a door in the couple's kitchen, after which she slapped his face.

Per the report, it all went down in front of the couple's 9-year-old son, who screamed at the brawling duo to "stop fighting!"

Boadwine was charged with domestic battery and booked just past midnight. He was expected to be in court to face a judge this afternoon.

Originally from Alaska, Boadwine moved to Florida with his family after he finished filming season four of Truckers. (He does not appear on the new season, which kicks off this Sunday.)

His bio on the History website describes him as "a gregarious, down-to-earth guy who is not afraid to piss someone off...He's a man with an attitude...With a large family, Greg has much to gain this season and a lot more to lose."

On what appears to be his personal website, he claims that when not on the road, he is at home with his family "truly appreciating the finest things in life."

"A few of those finer things include watching the boys play baseball, everyone in the pool goofing off, just lounging around watching movies," he writes. "But as all parents know, when the kids go to sleep it's a small slice of heaven."

He also calls wife Crystal his "rock" and says "she is my support system no matter if it's a good day or a bad one."

"I'm a truly blessed man because my life is full of love and luck," he writes.

And now, apparently, a rap sheet, too.
