Man rams car into wife’s in Mother’s Day domestic incident
BELTON — Mother’s Day turned dangerous for one Anderson woman as she fled her home at the height of a domestic dispute about 3:30 p.m. Sunday.
The woman tried to drive away from her Belton mobile home at 349 Mize Road, but her husband’s van slammed into the passenger side of her black Dodge Durango.
Her husband, Christopher Ray Alewine, 32, of Anderson was charged with three counts of attempted murder Sunday, said Anderson County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Chad McBride.
The woman, her 12-year-old son and 2-year-old child went to AnMed Health Medical Center.
"None of them sustained any serious injuries," McBride said.
Alewine drove away from the crash, and deputies caught him at the corner of U.S. 29 North and Allie Campbell Road, about four miles from the mobile home.
He shouted "Happy Mother’s Day," to news media filming deputies putting him into the police car.
There were two calls about the dispute, McBride said. The first one came in at 3:03 p.m., and the second one followed the wreck at 3:30 p.m.
The impact from the collision caused many bricks to fall from the front of the mobile home’s foundation.
Alewine was moved to the Anderson County Detention Center Sunday evening. He awaits a Monday bond hearing.
