New Mexico State University Chancellor Dan Arvizu has asked for privacy after his wife Sheryl Arvizu was arrested and charged with battery on a household member. NMSU spokesperson Justin Bannister issued a statement on behalf of the Chancellor:

"Dan Arvizu and his family are going through some deeply personal issues right now. He asks for the community to grant his family privacy during this time."
