A 32-year-old Bartlesville man is sitting in the Washington County jail following his arrest on an outstanding warrant for allegedly running over his wife with a SUV in early August.

Ernesto Fonseca is charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and leaving the scene of an injury accident.

A court affidavit says sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the Bartlesville hospital's emergency room for a woman injured during a domestic dispute.

The victim told deputies that Fonseca had slapped her, then got into a SUV and backed over her.

The incident occurred in the early morning hours of August 3 on a rural county road north of Bartlesville.

The affidavit states the deputy observed what "appeared to be grayish colored marks that resemble a tire tread" on her back.

She told deputies Fonseca left the scene in the SUV.

Sheriff's deputies arrested Fonseca this week and a judge ordered him held on a $50,000 bond pending a November 30 court hearing.
