NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A Nashville man is in jail after allegedly sending his wife to the emergency room one day after their one-year wedding anniversary.

The affidavit says 27-year-old Joshua Whitworth sent his wife to the Skyline ER yesterday with possible broken ribs after he kicked her while she was down on the ground. He also repeatedly punched her in the face sending blood everywhere.

The altercation began, according to Whitworth's Facebook page, one day after the couple's first wedding anniversary. His wife was in the bathroom because she was not feeling well when the incident began, the report says.

Whitworth is being held in the Davidson County Jail on $75,000 for aggravated assault.
