A suburban Detroit man accused of severing his wife's arm following an argument at a bar has pleaded no contest in the case.

Thirty-nine-year-old Stephen Humphrey of Romulus was charged him with causing a serious injury while driving on a suspended license, and causing serious injury and drunken driving.

A Monroe County judge could give him up to five years in prison.

Thirty-four-year-old Brenda Humphrey says she and her husband began arguing after drinking at a bar.

Authorities say she got out of the truck, then reached inside for a cell phone.

They say her husband drove away, and her arm got tangled in the seat belt.
