The defendant was convicted of assault under § 30-3-1 C, N.M.S.A.1978, in the magistrate court. His de novo appeal to the district court also resulted in conviction. He seeks to have the decision of the district court reversed.
Defendant, riding a motorcycle and stopped at a traffic light, saw his ex-wife driving an automobile heading in the opposite direction. As soon as the light turned *99green the defendant turned around, followed her, and drove his motorcycle in front of her, causing her to drive off the highway to avoid an accident. He walked from his cycle to her car, which she had pulled off into a ditch, addressed her in some coarse, insulting, gutter terms and threatened her and her children with bodily harm. The encounter lasted about two minutes and the defendant drove off.
In his docketing statement defendant contended that defendant’s alibi was sufficient to establish reasonable doubt and thus avoid a judgment of conviction.
In connection with this contention, defendant argues other sub-points of his docketing statement, i. e., that hearsay and opinion evidence were allowed to refute the alibi testimony, and that “the only proper evidence concerning the question of alibi and provocation were based upon inferences that were piled upon inferences and in the alternative were so insubstantial as to result in fundamental error.” His briefed argument otherwise includes an objection to allowance of evidence of collateral offenses, but it departs from his docketing statement to assert further that the defendant was precluded from developing testimony supporting his theories of defense, and that the statute under which he was tried fails to provide notice of the offenses charged.
We recognize that, properly raised, we might agree that a constitutional infirmity in the statute exists insofar as first and fourteenth (not fifth or sixth) amendment rights are concerned, Gooding v. Wilson, 405 U.S. 518, 92 S.Ct. 1103, 31 L.Ed.2d 408 (1972). We do not consider the argument of vagueness in defendant’s brief, or his contention that he was restricted in presenting his theories of defense (which, incidentally, is not supported by the record). Neither issue was included in his docketing statement. State v. Jacobs, 91 N.M. 445, 575 P.2d 954 (Ct.App.), cert. den. 91 N.M. 491, 576 P.2d 297 (1978). Moreover, the question of the allegedly unconstitutional vagueness of the statute was not presented to the trial court for decision. A reviewing court will not reverse a trial court on a ground that the trial court was not asked to consider nor had the opportunity to rule upon. Laguna Dev. Co. v. McAlester Fuel Co., 91 N.M. 244, 572 P.2d 1252 (1977); see Melon v. State, 90 N.M. 787, 586 P.2d 1233 (1977). We note the first amendment weakness of subsection C of § 30-3-1, N.M. S.A.1978, sua sponte, merely to alert the Legislature and prosecuting authorities of its possible constitutional imperfection in view of the Supreme Court’s decision in Gooding v. Wilson, supra.
Returning, then, to the arguments raised below and preserved by the docketing statement, the record reveals that defendant’s alibi was partially reinforced by one witness, denied by two others. As the trial of facts, the trial court resolved the conflict, observing that “to accept your proposition would mean that I would have to find everyone else in this court is a liar except [defendant].” The trial judge is presumed to know that he must be satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt of defendant’s guilt. Defendant’s alibi evidence was not sufficient, as a matter of law, to overcome the quantum of proof required for the trial court’s decision.
There was limited evidence taken of collateral offenses committed by the defendant and the court itself raised some questions at that stage of the trial. But the evidence elicited was invited by the manner of defendant’s cross-examination of the ex-wife. In explaining to the court that defendant was attempting to show harassment by his former wife’s abuse of the prosecutorial process, after the State had objected to that line of questioning, defendant opened up the trial court’s legitimate inquiry regarding the outcome of her previous complaints. If there was error— and we do not say there was — it was induced by defendant’s injecting into the trial the issue of prior misdemeanor charges instituted by Mrs. Parrillo against defendant. He will not be heard to complain on appeal that he was prejudiced by evidence that might be objectionable under Rule 404, N.M.R. Evid., if offered by the State, when *100he invited its introduction into the trial record. State v. Sedillo, 81 N.M. 47, 462 P.2d 632 (Ct.App.1969).
The hearsay and opinion evidence objections are predicated on testimony of the son of the parties that he had talked by telephone with his mother on the day she said she had been run off the road. He related the date of the conversation to the date the complaint was filed and the date his father had exercised visitation rights with his sister. The evidence was admitted not to show the truth of his mother’s accusations but to establish how he remembered the whereabouts of his father at the time and date in question. The boy’s testimony was not inadmissible under N.M.R. Evid. 801(c).
Finding no error, the judgment of conviction is affirmed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
