A Terre Haute man makes a court appearance after being arrested at the home he shared with his wife.
38 year old Jon Swaner is preliminarily charged with misdemeanor domestic battery.
Police say that Swaner had an argument with his wife at their home and that the two told police that she ran into a door causing a cut over her eye.
The judge has ordered the two to stay away from each other.
Swaner is due back in court Thursday.
At that time the state may file formal charges.
