The Associated Press - November 3, 2018 9:29 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A special agent with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has been suspended from duty following his arrest on a domestic abuse complaint.
The agency announced in a press release Friday that 49-year-old Martin Solorzano of Edmond was arrested after allegedly striking his wife during an argument this week. Court records don’t indicate that Solorzano has been charged or whether he has an attorney to speak on his behalf.
OSBI Director Ricky Adams said he suspended Solorzano and ordered a criminal and administrative investigation. Solorzano was arrested and booked Thursday into the Oklahoma County jail.
The agency says Solorzano will remain on paid leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
