Adam Reyna, 23, is accused of repeatedly assaulting his pregnant girlfriend
A man from Texas who was accused of repeatedly assaulting his pregnant girlfriend has been indicted on charges of domestic violence charge.
Court records show that Adam Reyna, 23, allegedly beat the woman while she was in labor having contractions.
Reyna was being held in custody on Thursday on multiple charges stemming from domestic violence — including a third-degree-felony count of continuous violence against family.
Police believe he attacked his girlfriend on at least two occasions this year but it comes as littler surprise to law enforcement who revealed the Lubbock man has a slew of charges and arrests connected to reports of violence against his family.
His mother told investigators that he struggles with mental disorders and substance abuse.

On one occasion according to Amarillo.com in May, officers responded after receiving reports of a domestic disturbance in which Reyna allegedly ‘struck his girlfriend with an open hand to her face, grabbed her by the hair and threw her on the ground causing her pain’ after he and his girlfriend began to argue about their finances, according to a police report.
At the time, his girlfriend was seven months pregnant.
A month later, Reyna’s mother called the cops after hearing about an incident in which his girlfriend was having painful contractions throughout the night.
At one point, the contractions were so painful she could do nothing but scream out in pain at which point Reyna allegedly punched her in the face until she stopped talking.

According to an arrest warrant, Reyna’s mother told police her son has several mental disorders, takes drunks and drinks frequently. She believes this may have played a significant part in his behavior.
Other arrest reports show Reyna assaulted his father in October 2016.
Reyna’s mother stated at the time that her son ‘smoked crack cocaine, which always leads him to being “crazy.”‘
Reyna has been booked into Lubbock County Detention Center on charges of domestic assault and domestic violence against family members, with bail set at more than $45,000.
