Man accused of running over girlfriend's hand with Jeep
A 24-year-old Towanda man was recently charged with aggravated assault after he ran over his girlfriend's hand with a Jeep, police said.
Michael Lee Bormann assaulted his girlfriend, Jenna Hart, inside his residence and then allegedly tried to run her over as he fled the scene, police said.
Hart told police that she barely escaped being run over by Bormann's Jeep, but was unable to prevent the vehicle from running over her hand, according to a criminal complaint that the Towanda police filed against Bormann in Towanda District Court.
Hart told police that the incident began Wednesday afternoon when she and Bormann were engaged in an argument, the complaint states.
Hart told police that after the argument started, Bormann grabbed her by the hair and pulled her to the ground.
It was after this assault that Bormann allegedly tried to run Hart over, the complaint states.
Hart had a swollen right hand, which she said was a result of it being run over by the vehicle that Bormann was driving, according to the police.
Hart also had a bloody scrape on the left side of her face, bruising on the right side of her face, and a bloody nose, police said.
Hart was transported by ambulance to a medical facility in the area for treatment, police said.
Besides the first-degree felony charge of aggravated assault, Bormann was also charged with simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, resisting arrest, driving while under the influence of alcohol, and driving with a suspended license, police said.
Bormann was arraigned before Towanda Magisterial District Judge Timothy Clark on Wednesday.
Bormann was then sent to the Bradford County jail in lieu of $50,000 bail.
Bormann must attend a preliminary hearing on Wednesday before Judge Clark.
