A Texas man was arrested on domestic violence charges for allegedly attacking his pregnant girlfriend for making too much noise while she was having contractions.
Lubbock police said Adam Reyna, 23, assaulted the expectant woman on numerous occasions, including while she was having contractions.
According to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, Reyna’s mom called police in June after learning about one alleged incident. The girlfriend told authorities that on June 21 she started having contractions in the middle of the night.
She said Reyna became agitated she wouldn’t be quiet and repeatedly punched her in the face until she stopped talking.
It’s not clear if the girlfriend had the baby already.
Reyna’s mother reportedly told police that her son struggles with mental health and substance abuse. She said she thinks that’s what influenced Reyna to attack his girlfriend.
Police were also called to the couple’s home in May. During that incident the girlfriend, seven months pregnant at the time, said Reyna used an “open hand” and hit her after an argument over their finances. A police report stated that Reyna also grabbed the woman by her hair and threw her to the ground, the outlet reports.
Reyna has also been accused of attacking his family members. Authorities said an October 2016 argument led to Reyna allegedly assaulting his father.

At the time, the father told police that his son started acting “crazy” and hit him. Reyna’s mother told police that he “smokes crack cocaine, which always leads him to be ‘crazy.'”
Reyna was booked in the Lubbock County Detention Center on charges of domestic assault, evading arrest/detention and for warrants, including continuous violence against family members.
His bond is $45,000.
