Pregnant Arizona housewife Holly Solomon has taken post-election outrage to a new level, blaming her husband for what she deemed an unfavorable result after President Obama’s win last week — and running the 36-year-old man down with her Jeep, seriously injuring him.
Solomon, 28, reportedly argued with her spouse on Saturday morning in full view of witnesses, lambasting his lack of voter participation and, ultimately, Obama’s re-election. But the woman’s actions outstripped regular household political bickering, as witnesses report that the Arizona woman began to chase her husband with the Jeep.
As Daniel Solomon sought cover behind a light post, those present report, Solomon attempted to circumvent his evasion with the Jeep, finally striking and running over her spouse with the sport utility vehicle.
And while the story falls into the “odd news” category, the situation is also serious. Solomon’s husband was severely injured in the domestic dispute and is now in critical condition following his wife’s bizarre actions. It is also worth noting that Solomon’s action are likely indicative not of genuine political outrage but rather some sort of underlying issue or condition sparking her unbalanced actions.
Horrified witnesses called 911 to report the woman trying to run her husband over because Obama was elected, with one reporting:
“He got out of the car and she was screaming at him. And he started walking away and she started driving in circles around him and she wouldn’t let him go so finally he took off to try to get away and she ran into him.”
According to medics responding to the scene, Holly Solomon had her husband pinned under the vehicle when they arrived and explained that she had hoped to “scare” him with her actions.
Neither drugs nor alcohol were suspected to be a factor in the incident, and Solomon told police she was angry enough to run her husband over with the Jeep because she believed that Obama’s re-election would cause harm to her family.
After her arrest, Solomon was charged with domestic violence and aggravated assault.
