A Mesa man is in critical condition after his wife ran over him with her Jeep because she was upset he didn't vote in the presidential election and feared her family would suffer with President Obama's re-election, Gilbert police said Monday.
Holly Solomon, 28, was arrested about 10 a.m. Saturday after she chased her husband Daniel Solomon, 36, in a parking lot on Gilbert Road near Vaughn Avenue, police said.
Gilbert police spokesman Sgt. Jesse Sanger said Holly Solomon started arguing with her husband because she "believed her family was going to face hardship" as a result of Obama's re-election.
The victim tried hiding behind a light pole, Sanger said, while his wife "drove around the pole numerous times while continuing to yell at him."
The victim eventually started running toward the road but was struck by the Jeep and pinned beneath the vehicle and the curb, Sanger said.
Sanger said there was no indication that Holly Solomon was impaired by drugs or alcohol and said her husband is in critical condition at Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical center.
She was booked into jail on domestic violence charges.
