An Ecuadorian pizza deliveryman who was held up as an example of zealous US immigration enforcement has been arrested in a domestic violence case.

A criminal complaint alleges that Pablo Villavicencio pushed his wife against a wall, slapped her and grabbed her phone to keep her from calling police.

It says the incident occurred on Thursday at the couple's Hempstead, Long Island home.

He was arraigned on Saturday on a misdemeanor charge and remained jailed on Monday afternoon.

His attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Villavicencio was detained on June 1 after delivering pizza to the Fort Hamilton Army base in Brooklyn. He was seeking to establish legal residency and overcome a 2010 order to leave the country.

The government declined to appeal the July decision freeing him.
