A Western Wisconsin couple faces possible domestic abuse charges, after a dispute over Tuesday’s recall primary election.
According to the Chippewa Falls Police Department, 30-year-old Amanda Radle was attempting to leave her residence to go vote for her preferred candidates, when 36-year-old Jeffrey Radle refused to let her leave because he disagreed with who she planned to vote for.
Amanda started her vehicle, and Jeffrey blocked her path in a dead-end alley. She nudged him with her vehicle several times. Jeffrey responded by reestablishing his ground, then at one point jumped on the hood of the car.
As Amanda finally got around him, Radle reportedly jumped in front of the car and was struck. Amanda left the scene and reported the incident herself to police. Jeffery Radle was transported to a nearby hospital in Eau Claire with unknown injuries.
Police say both subjects are being referred to the District Attorney’s office, and they could face charges as a result of the incident.
