He appeared in court Thursday morning on a charge of a “crime against physical and moral integrity in the home”.

Police subsequently took a statement from the suspect before arresting him.
The principality of Andorra is a popular place for professional riders to live due to its location in the Pyrenees. According to local reports, upwards of 60 pros live in the region.
