After Quickie Wedding In Vegas, Utah Groom Hits Bride With Car

It wasn’t the most romantic of honeymoons. Police said a groom is in jail, accused of trying to run over his new wife after a weekend wedding in Las Vegas. “We have a wedding certificate for (March) 4th. They were still honeymooning when he ran her over,” said Lt. Paul Jaroscak, a spokesman for the Salt Lake County sheriff’s office.

Police received an emergency call Monday from someone reporting a couple fighting in a car as they traveled on Highland Drive, about 10 miles southeast of Salt Lake City. Katie Martindale, 29, apparently got out of the car and started to walk away when James Olwine, 33, drove off the road and hit her with the car, pushing her into a snowbank, Jaroscak said.

Martindale was not seriously injured but might have a broken leg, Jaroscak said.

Olwine was booked into the county jail on charges of aggravated assault with a vehicle, the lieutenant said. It was unclear if he had an attorney.

Both have jail records and are “well known to the sheriff’s office,” he said.
