Man charged with assault after attempting to run over spouse

A 33-year-old man reportedly assaulted and attempted to run over his common-law spouse after returning home from a party upset, an Ector County Sheriff’s Office affidavit stated.
Ector County Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched at about 7:40 a.m. Sunday to West Orange Street about a disturbance and found Adrian Garcia Flores in a blue 2005 Chevy Tahoe.
Flores’ common-law spouse told deputies that Flores had repeatedly assaulted her by punching her in the face with a closed fist causing bruising and redness. When she attempted to flee, he then pulled a black knife from his pocket, and in close proximity made stabbing and slicing motions and told her she was not going anywhere, the affidavit detailed.
When the woman tried to flee the residence, she said Flores then attempted to run her over with the Tahoe.
Flores was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony. He has a $20,000 bond and remained in custody as of Tuesday afternoon, jail records show.
