PINELLAS PARK, Fla. - A man was arrested Sunday afternoon in Pinellas Park after he intentionally ran over his wife in their van, police said.
Kenneth Roberts, 60, was driving on 76th Avenue near the intersection of 47th Street.
According to Sgt. Eric Leshick with the Pinellas Park Police Department, Roberts and his wife got into an argument, prompting her to get out of the van.
Roberts then drove forward, flipped the van around and ran over his wife.
Roberts' wife suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg.
Roberts was arrested near the scene later that afternoon. He could face charges ranging from battery to attempted homicide, Leshick said.
"It is one of the weirder things (we see)," Leshick said, "but it happens."
According to police, Roberts also did not have a valid driver's license and should not have been driving.
