What can I say never trust a blond that shows her dark roots....
In what is a harsh lesson of what not to do when you get into a fight with your significant other, a woman from Lafayette, Indiana, decided to have the final say by running her husband over with her car.
Tamara Eileen Holsclaw and her husband, Gordon Holsclaw, got into a fight at their home, for reasons yet to be disclosed to the media. The argument escalated rapidly and Gordon thought it would be best for everyone involved if he left, Journal & Courier reports.
He wanted to defuse the situation, so he walked out the door. His bad luck made it so that he forgot his wallet at home. He went back in for it and, when he came back out, his wife was waiting for him in her car. You probably guessed where this is going.
“When left the house again to leave, Tamara Holsclaw, 59, was in her car and purposefully accelerated at her husband, police said,” the report notes. “The car struck Gordon Holsclaw, knocking him to the ground and causing a few scrapes.”
Tamara was arrested and booked into the Tippecanoe County Jail on the charge of battery with a deadly weapon. “She remained jailed Wednesday in lieu of bond, according to online jail records,” the same media outlet reports.
Battery with a deadly weapon or aggravated battery is a second-degree felony that carries a minimum mandatory sentence and a maximum of prison sentence of 15 years. One way to fight the charge would be to prove lack of intent, but this was hardly the case here, since the two were having an argument. It seems obvious that she went outside so she could have time to get into her car, start the engine and run her husband over when he came back out.
