Patricia Morehead strikes ex-husband with car, police say

Patricia Morehead has been charged with attempted second-degree murder and first-degree assault.

An Anne Arundel woman is behind bars after police say she tried to run over her ex-husband Wednesday.

Police were called to the 1200 block of Hawthorne Street for a report of an assault around 10:30 p.m. That’s when they found a 61-year-old man pinned between two vehicles in his driveway. He was suffering from serious injuries to his lower body.

Police say his ex-wife, 39-year-old Patricia Morehead, went to his home and started arguing with him. She eventually got into her pick-up truck and struck the man, pinning him between another parked car.

The man was flown to Prince George’s County Shock Trauma.

Morehead faces attempted second-degree murder and first-degree assault charges.
