Not excusing her behavior, but Tess may have just been afraid your husband was going to harm her and so she was defending herself. Was he very forceful w/Tess when he grabbed the collar or did he just nudge her? When you try getting her to her crate make sure it's as pleasant an experience as possible; lots of rewarding w/treats and toys and praise for going inside the crate.
I have spoken w/an animal behaviorist when Finn growled at me once for taking his toy away and he advised me to immediately get him to do his basic commands--Sit, Stay, Down, with a leash and collar. Just to get him back on track w/who is the pack leader.
