A Facebook update resulted in the arrest of a Texas man who allegedly beat up his wife for not "liking" his status. 

Benito Apolinar, 36, of Pecos, Texas, was arrested Monday following a fight at the Carlsbad, N.M., home of Dolores Apolinar, the Carlsbad Current-Argus reported.

According to the criminal complaint, Benito Apolinar posted a comment on his Facebook page about the anniversary of his mother's death, but Dolores Apolinar didn't click the "like" status button.

The complaint says Benito Apolinar told his wife that he was unhappy that she didn't respond as others did. Police say that's when a fight began.

Benito Apolinar pleaded not guilty to one charge of battery.

It was unclear if he had hired an attorney.
