A six month pregnant Gilbert, Arizona woman was arrested and charged with domestic violence and aggravated assault last month after becoming enraged when she discovered that her husband didn’t vote in last month’s Presidential election.
According to witnesses, Holly Solomon, 28, was seen arguing with her husband Daniel in a parking lot after she became infuriated during their discussion involving his decision not to vote in the election that took place on November 6. The witnesses, one of whom made a 911 call heard shouting and saw Mrs. Solomon get into her Jeep and chase her husband through the parking lot, the East Valley Tribune reported. Another witness commented that “He got out of the car and she was screaming at him. And he started walking away and she started driving in circles around him and she wouldn’t let him go so finally he took off to try to get away and she ran into him.”
The exchange between the two which quickly got out-of-hand was driven by Solomon’s loathing of President Obama’s recently enacted Affordable Care Act, generally known as Obamacare according to MyFox Phoenix.
During the mad chase, Mr. Solomon tried to hide behind a light pole at first, but Mrs. Solomon pursued him while yelling at him, a Gilbert, AZ. Police report confirmed.
When the husband tried to escape, she drove after him, finally hitting him with the SUV and sandwiching him between the Jeep and the parking lot curb, according to local police. Mr. Solomon was taken to a local hospital where he is in critical condition. It was later revealed that he sustained a fracture of the pelvic area, artery damage and also faces potential “permanent disfiguration” caused by the violent attack, according to court records.
Daniel Solomon communicated to police that his wife began arguing with him the weekend after the election, explicitly due to his “lack of voter participation,” in the Presidential race. Gilbert police Sergeant Jesse Sanger communicated in an e-mail that he said Solomon’s wife believed that her family was going to face undue hardships as the result of President Obama again winning the Presidential election and the establishment of Obamacare that will now become the law of the land.
Mrs. Solomon pleaded not guilty to the charges which are possibly the Country’s largest overreaction to the outcome of a Presidential election. Initially, the plea, which is customarily just a formality to charges of reckless driving, disorderly conduct with a weapon, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, was heard by a jailhouse Judge who told her that she was now charged with the three counts. She is being held on a $50,000 bond and had nothing to say through the brief proceeding although when medics originally arrived at the scene and found her husband pinned under the vehicle she explained that she had hoped to “scare” him with her actions. Neither drugs nor alcohol were assumed to be an element of the incident
Solomon’s next court date is planned for January 11, 2013, which happens to be nine days before President Obama’s second inauguration.
