A trooper with the Iowa State Patrol arrested 32-year old Roberto Rios for driving drunk in a rural part of Hamilton County Iowa at around 2:45 a.m. on Thursday, May 5th.
The Altoona Chief plans to start the extradition process Monday, but adds that Rios will probably have to face any local charges in Iowa first.
Altoona police had been looking for Rios since Wednesday night.
That's when they responded to his southside Altoona home after getting a call concerning a woman who had been hit several times in the head with a hammer.
Officers say she was able to get out of there and get a relative to take her to the hospital.
