JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Police arrested a 33-year-old Jonesboro man Sunday after they say he tried to run over his wife with a pickup truck.

The victim told Officer Casey Moore she and her husband, Brandon Michael Lierman, had been arguing for two days. While he was away at work Sunday morning, she packed up her stuff and moved into another apartment.

After getting the last load, the 29-year-old woman said she and her cousin were leaving her grandfather's home in the 2600-block of Greensboro Road when Lierman showed up.

She said he jumped out of his pickup truck and began yelling at her. He then kicked the bumper of her cousin’s car, scratching it, before getting back into his pickup and flooring it toward the end of the driveway, according to the police report.

The victim said Lierman then turned the truck and “aimed” it where she was standing beside a chain link fence and “floored the gas again.”

The woman told Officer Casey Moore that “at the last second,” Lierman “jerked the steering wheel left and out of the way of hitting [her].”

A neighbor called police as Lierman drove away.

Police issued a BOLO for Lierman, and another officer arrested him a short time later near Royale and Dan Avenue and took him to the Craighead County Detention Center.

On Monday, Craighead County District Court Judge Tommy Fowler found probable cause to charge Lierman with aggravated assault on a family or household member and set his bond at $2,500, cash or surety.

Lierman is due in circuit court on May 30.
