Cops: Ariz. woman runs over husband for not voting
GILBERT, Ariz. Police say a woman who was upset over the outcome of the presidential election ran over her husband because he didn't participate in his civic duty.
Holly Solomon, 28, chased her 36-year-old husband Daniel Solomon with the family Jeep SUV on Saturday night over a political argument stemming from the fact he didn't vote, CBS station KPHO in Phoenix, Ariz. reported. She pinned him between the underside of the SUV and the curb when he tried to run for help.
The husband told investigators that Solomon believed her family was going to face hardship from President Barack Obama's re-election.
Witnesses told police that Solomon followed her husband in her car through a parking lot while screaming at him. He hid behind a light pole to protect himself while Solomon circled several times. She struck him as he tried to make a break for the main road.
There were no signs Solomon was impaired either by alcohol or drugs, KPHO said.
She was booked on an aggravated assault and domestic violence.
Her husband remains in critical condition at Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center, news outlet Arizona Republic reported.
It's not clear whether Solomon has a lawyer. She had no listed phone number.
