A domestic dispute in Alexander on Thursday started out as a report of a wife running over her husband with her car and ended for him with a trip to the Genesee County Jail.
Jerod Norcross, 33, formerly of Attica and currently believed to be a resident of West Virginia, suffered a couple of cracked ribs when the side-view mirror of his wife's Toyota struck him, as well as a contusion to his foot when a tire backed over it.
Norcross is accused of taking an unknown object and smashing in the back windshield of the car and cause other damage to the car's body.
After being transported to UMMC by the Alexander ambulance, Norcross was treated and released. Upon release from the hospital, Norcross was arrested by a trooper and arraigned in Alexander Town Court.
He was charged with criminal mischief, 3rd, and jailed on $2,500 bail.
The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are pending, according to State Police Sgt. Sam Taglienti.
The wife was not charged because it's not believed she intentionally tried to hit her husband, Taglienti said. She was reportedly trying to get away from him and he was allegedly trying to stop her.
The type of object that Norcross allegedly used to smash the back windshield has not been determined, Taglienti said. It hasn't been found.
The couple formerly lived in Attica, according to Taglienti, and moved to West Virginia and were in Alexander visiting family.
