GILBERT, AZ (CBS5) -

A Gilbert man was in critical condition and his wife under arrest after she allegedly ran him over with the family SUV on Saturday night during an argument over the presidential election, according to Gilbert Police.

Holly Solomon was arrested on charges of domestic violence and aggravated assault charges after she chased her 36-year-old husband in their Jeep SUV through a parking lot near Gilbert Road and Vaughn Avenue before pinning him between the SUV and a curb, according to Jesse Sanger of the Gilbert Police Department.

Sanger said Solomon, 28, argued with her husband over his lack of political involvement and that she believed her family would suffer under a second term of Pres. Barack Obama.

Witnesses told police they heard yelling and saw Solomon get behind the wheel of the Jeep and chase her husband through the parking lot. Sanger said the husband eventually stopped behind a light pole while Solomon drove around him numerous times.

Her husband tried to run toward Gilbert Road but was caught by Solomon in the Jeep, Sanger said.

Officers said they didn't believe Solomon was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time.
