Holiday party ends badly; wife runs over husband

A 24-year-old woman is being held in King County Jail after allegedly running over her husband during a fight that started at an office holiday party on Queen Anne on Saturday, according to Seattle police.

The couple decided to leave the party when they began to argue but continued fighting while at their car, which was parked in a lot in the 2000 block of 15th Avenue West, police said. The husband got out of the car and walked away as things became more heated, police said.

“He then noticed that his wife was maneuvering their black 2004 Mitsubishi Galant toward him so he sheltered behind a small tree at the edge of the parking lot. His wife drove over the tree, struck him with the car and ran over him. She then sped off down the road,” wrote Seattle Police Department spokesman Jeff Kappel in a post on the SPD Blotter.

A state trooper pulled the woman over when he saw her driving recklessly, police said. Seattle police also responded and booked the woman into jail on investigation of felony domestic violence assault.

King County Jail records show that she was denied bail.

The 34-year-old victim was taken to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.
