A Calhoun man is in jail this week after deputies say he hit his wife with his vehicle during an argument at their home.
Darrell Ingram, 29, of Calhoun, is facing first-degree assault charges in addition to an aggravated DUI.
McLean County Sheriff’s deputies said Ingram and his wife were both drinking in the early morning hours of Jan. 6, when the two allegedly began fighting.
Ingram allegedly told deputies after the incident that the fight got out of control and he decided to leave and his wife struck the vehicle with her hands as he backed into the road.
In the street, deputies said Ingram struck his wife as he left, causing injuries to her head, arm and leg, and even resulting in surgery.
After he struck her, according to police, Ingram got out of his black Chevrolet truck and checked on her but reportedly determined that she was OK and left.
His wife was found by a neighbor who called 911, deputies said.
Ingram came to the sheriff’s department several hours later to give a full statement, where he was arrested and charged.
He was booked in the Muhlenberg County Detention Center.
