PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. -- Prescott Valley police said a man ran over his wife with a pickup truck at least once in a parking lot Wednesday morning.

Police responded to multiple calls from citizens about a woman being run over in the Arizona Department of Economic Security lot near Highway 69 and Navajo Drive around 11:30 a.m.

Police said the 51-year-old woman had gone to the Department of Economic Security, and her estranged husband, 53-year-old Steven Craig Henry, was waiting for her when she came out.

Witnesses reported a disturbance between the man and woman. They said he put his truck in drive and reverse several times as he tried to negotiate out of a parking spot, knocking the woman over and running over her midsection at least once.

"Her car was parked behind him, kind of half-blocking him in," said Sgt. Scott Stebbins with the Prescott Valley Police Department.

She was transported to a local hospital and then flown to John C. Lincoln Hospital in Phoenix in stable condition.

"She's very fortunate," Stebbins said.

Police said Henry remained on scene and cooperated with investigators.

Stebbins said investigators found methamphetamine while searching Henry's truck.

He was arrested on felony charges of aggravated assault, endangerment, and possession of dangerous drugs and drug paraphernalia, as well as misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and driving under the influence of drugs.
