Clint Webb Waives Preliminary Hearing On Charges That He Tried To Run Over His Wife
The case involving a Casper man accused of trying to run over his wife is moving forward in court.
Forty-one year old Clint Webb has waived his preliminary hearing, in a case in which he faces two counts of aggravated assault and one count of property destruction.
Investigators with the Casper Police Department say in late June, Webb tried to run over his wife, Julie, and crashed into several other vehicles in the process.
Julie told officers that she was traveling westbound in her vehicle, on East 12th Street, approaching Payne Street, when Clint ran the stop sign, while traveling south on Payne, and rammed her vehicle with his.
After she got out of her car, Clint drove around the block and tried to run her over, while she was standing on a neighbors front lawn.
One witness saw the latter attempt, and told police there was no doubt that the driver was trying to run Julie over.
Another witness saw both incidents and told investigators that Clint was deliberately trying to cause damage, and a third witness managed to get the license plate number and described Clint's driving as erratic and very fast.
Clint's vehicle eventually became inoperable, but he was able to get another vehicle and drive to Las Vegas, Nevada.
It was there that his defense attorney says he turned himself in.
Officers later learned that Julie had a protection order against Clint.
One of Clint's co-workers said earlier in the day in which the incident occurred, Clint had been served divorce papers while at work, and he went home early that day.
Clint is being held on $50,000 bond awaiting trial, and could face up to 10 years in prison on each charge if convicted.
