A Springfield woman was indicted in connection to running over her husband with a vehicle.
Ashley Vinion, 26, was indicted in Clark County Common Pleas Court on a charge of felonious assault and misdemeanor domestic violence.
Springfield police began their investigation when they were called to a East Main Street and Sycamore Street to investigate the assault, according to a police affidavit filed with charges in Clark County Municipal Court.
“When officers arrived on the scene, we observed (the victim) bleeding from his right hand and that he had mud covering both his lower legs,” the affidavit says.
The man said he was walking on the bike path near the 500 block of East High Street and she drove up behind him very quickly and hit him with her front bumper, according to the affidavit.
“(He) stated when he was on the hood of the car, he punched the windshield,” the affidavit says. “He stated Ms. Vinion then stopped the car and he fell off the car into the mud on the side of the bike path. (He) stated Ms. Vinion then got out of the car and tried to take his cell phone away from him.”
The man said he was able to keep his cell phone and then called police, the affidavit says.
Vinion allegedly told police she was upset because her husband was dating a different woman, the affidavit says, and changed her story several times.
“Ms. Vinion stated at different times that she only tried to ‘bump’ him with her car,” the affidavit says. “She also stated she wouldn’t have hit him with her car. She then stated she never struck him with her car. Ms. Vinion denied she had hit him with her car.”
A next court date in the case has not been set.
