A pregnant Arizona woman was arrested on charges of domestic violence and aggravated assault charges following an attempt to run over her husband Sunday.
Holly Solomon, 28, is six months pregnant and become infuriated that her husband, Daniel, did not exercise his right to vote Nov. 6, MyFoxPhoenix.com reports. Solomon feels their family will suffer under a second term of President Barack Obama, police said.
Attempting to use a light post to hide from his wife, 36-year-old Daniel Solomon was struck by the family SUV as he was running away and was pinned between the Jeep and a curb, Jesse Sanger of the Gilbert Police Department told CBS affiliate KPHO.
Police say witnesses heard the couple yelling before they saw Holly Solomon get behind the wheel and trail her husband through the parking lot, KPHO reported.
"At one point he went behind a light pole so the vehicle wouldn't strike him. He ended up leaving the light pole trying to run away to a different area," Sanger told the CBS affiliate.
Daniel Solomon remains in critical condition at an area hospital.
Holly Solomon told officers she was just trying to scare her husband and not hurt him. Drugs and/or alcohol aren’t suspected as a catalyst in the incident, police told KPHO.
Gilbert is located in Maricopa County, Arizona, southeast of Phoenix. It was recognized as the 36th “Best Place to Live in the Nation” in 2010.
