Jumping Jehosaphat, it's an epidemic!
A man was in good condition at Memorial Hermann Hospital on Sunday evening after Webster police said his estranged wife struck him with her car.
Clifton Leroy Dickerson, 29, was with a female friend about 2:30 a.m. when his wife pulled in front of them in the parking lot of their apartment in the 800 block of West NASA Road One, police said.
An argument erupted when Dickerson walked over and struck up a conversation with his wife, Miacona Charles Dickerson, 29. Police said she then pulled out a knife and slashed him on his lower arm.
When Dickerson tried to run away, his wife ran him down with her car, police said. He was seriously injured and taken to Memorial Hermann. Miacona Dickerson was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and bond has been set at $50,000, police said. She remains at large.
A Liberty County woman, Renee Fowler-Reents, 46, was charged with misdemeanor family-violence assault after authorities said she ran her husband down Feb. 23 outside a Hardin convenience store. That incident occurred about 10 days after a Harris County jury found Friendswood dentist Clara Harris guilty of murder for fatally running over her husband on July 24.
