JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio – A man is spending time behind bars after allegedly hitting and running over his wife in a pick-up truck.
It happened Tuesday night in Amsterdam near the Dollar General.
When deputies arrived around 9 p.m., they found the victim in severe pain with tire prints along her right leg and hip.
She was taken to Trinity and officials began their investigation.
On Wednesday morning, the suspect, Ronnie Watson, turned himself in, hours after he left the scene and allegedly tried to find a place to hide his truck.
Both he and the victim acknowledged there was an argument and they both had been drinking.
Witnesses in the area told deputies that the action taken by Watson appeared to be deliberate and not accidental.
As a result, Watson faces a number of charges, including vehicular assault, domestic violence and leaving the scene.
