NEW PORT RICHEY -- A 63-year-old man was arrested Monday evening, accused of running over his wife — twice.
Benjamin Franklin Lee, of 9512 Gatun St., is being held without bail at the Land O' Lakes Jail on a charge of aggravated domestic battery.
Lee and his wife, Jennifer, were arguing, and he was trying to leave the house, according to an arrest affidavit. Lee told his wife to get out of the way of the car, but she wouldn't move, so he pulled forward and ran her over, the affidavit states.
"I backed up and probably ran over her again," Lee reportedly told deputies.
Lee, according to the affidavit, told deputies he drank six beers before slipping behind the wheel.
His wife was unresponsive when paramedics arrived. She was taken to Morton Plant North Bay Hospital, where her condition wasn't immediately known today.
Lee's arrest report notes that a tattoo on his right shoulder reads "Ben & Jenn."
