His case is more serious (risk of injury to a minor is a felony charge), and it isn't domestic violence. I don't normally use the names of people accused of domestic violence. The cases tend to end without convictions, seldom produce a public disturbance and are often one-brush-with-the-law situations. If the arrestee were a public official, if the injury were very serious, if the charges were more serious, or if there were some other reason to think there were something about the situation that would rightly concern the public, I'd reconsider. I think that's reasonable. Other news organizations think differently.
