SHADY SIDE, Md. (WMAR) - Anne Arundel County Police have arrested a woman who they say used a car to assault her estranged husband.
Officers responded to the 1200 block of Hawthorne Street at about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday for reports of an assault.
Once on the scene, officers found a 61-year-old man in the driveway of his home suffering from serious injuries to his lower body as a result of being pinned between two cars.
The investigation revealed that the victim's 39-year-old estranged wife, Patina Morehead, was at his home and was involved in a verbal argument with the man. During the argument, the two ended up in the driveway and at some point, Morehead got into her Chevrolet pickup truck and intentionally drove towards the victim.
Morehead hit the man with her truck, ultimately pinning him between her truck and a parked car.
The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Morehead was arrested at the scene and charged with attempted second degree murder and first degree assault.
