— A Clover man accused his wife of hitting him in the head with an aluminum baseball bat and then running him over with her a car.

When deputies arrived at the couple’s home Monday night, they found drops of blood leading from the driveway to the front porch, according to a York County Sheriff’s report. The 37-year-old man, who by that time had a shirt covering his left eye and forehead, told officers his wife, 41, grabbed a baseball bat while the two were arguing and then hit him on the left side of his head.

When the woman left the house, she got into her car. The man said he was standing in front of the car in the driveway when his wife hit him with the 2005 Chevrolet, knocking him to the ground, the report states.

The man told deputies he and his wife were married but separated. EMS took him to Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte.

The next day, the woman called deputies, asking about the charges against her, the report states. She said she planned to turn herself in voluntarily for criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature. She also said she wanted to press charges against her husband, who she claims pulled her by her hair from her car to the front porch.
