LAKE CITY, AR (KAIT) -

A Lake City woman faces battery charges after deputies say she ran over her husband with an SUV.

Craighead County sheriff’s deputies arrested Misty Ostermiller, 27, Monday night at a home in the 4700-block of Highway 158 South.

According to the incident report, the suspect and her husband, 41-year-old Michael Ostermiller, had been arguing when she got into a white 2000 Mitsubishi Montero and started the engine.

The victim said he was “backing away from the vehicle” when she drove forward, striking him and “propelling him onto the hood of the vehicle,” the report said.

At first, according to the deputy’s report, Misty Ostermiller claimed the vehicle “started itself and began moving forward, striking Michael.”

But the deputy reported finding “fresh skid marks on the gravel in the driveway” that indicated the “vehicle accelerated rapidly.”

When presented with this information, the deputy said Misty Ostermiller then said she drove the vehicle at her husband, hitting him.

The deputy arrested Misty Ostermiller on a charge of second-degree domestic battery and took her to the Craighead County Detention Center to await a probable cause hearing.

Michael Ostermiller was taken by ambulance to NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital in Jonesboro for medical treatment.
