Woman in Wisconsin runs husband over in dispute over recall vote. Why have people gotten so rabid?
CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis., May 9 (UPI) -- A
woman intent on voting for one candidate in Wisconsin's gubernatorial
recall primary election ran over her estranged husband, who backed
another, police say.
A police report stated the incident involved Amanda Radle, 30, a
recall proponent, and Jeffery Radle, 36, who supports recall target
Republican Gov. Scott Walker.
"She was planning on voting for a certain candidate and it wasn't the
candidate he wanted her to vote for," Chippewa Falls Police Chief Wendy
L. Stelter said.
Police said after the two argued, Jeffery Radle stubbornly stood in
his estranged wife's path and at one point jumped on the vehicle hood as
she was trying to drive to the polls Tuesday, the Chippewa Falls Herald
and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. She allegedly didn't let his
presence deter her and struck him with her sport utility vehicle,
inflicting head, neck and back injuries that sent him to the hospital
and led to her arrest, the newspapers said.
