SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Police in Sioux Falls say a man tried to run over his ex-girlfriend after the two argued.

The woman saw the 47-year-old man sitting in a van and went to talk to him Wednesday night. The two began arguing, and the man allegedly drove the van onto the sidewalk and tried to hit her.

An officer saw the van on the sidewalk and tried to stop it, but the man took off and struck a car. The driver was not hurt, but the car sustained major damage.

Police chased the man on foot after he abandoned the van. The Argus Leader reports the man tried to kick and bite the officers who arrested him.


The suspect was arrested for aggravated assault, hit and run, assaulting an officer and drug charges.
