Husband Who Tried to Run Over Wife Held on $50,000 Bond
A husband who tried to kill his wife with a sport utility vehicle last month was ordered held on a $50,000 bond in Natrona County Circuit Court on Thursday, according to court records.
Clint Raymond Webb, 41, made his initial appearance in circuit court where he heard the charge of aggravated assault and battery.
Judge Brian Christensen ordered Webb held on a $50,000 cash or surety bond, and also ordered him to not leave the county, not break any other laws, not use alcohol, and have no contact with the victim. Webb also will apply for a public defender.
The victim was his wife, who had filed for divorce and had a Family Violence Protection Act order against him after an incident on June 25, according to the police affidavit filed with the court.
On June 30, Webb was served with the divorce papers at his workplace, and a co-worker told police that Webb had been crying and left work early.
Later, Webb drove his maroon Honda Ridgeline and saw his wife driving near the Second and Walsh streets. Soon thereafter, he was traveling west on East 12th St., approaching Payne Avenue when he saw her vehicle, jumped the curb and into the lawn in the 2900 block of East 12th St., hit her vehicle and rendered it inoperable. She had to leap out of the way to avoid being hit.
Webb rounded the block and drove onto the lawn again, nearly hitting a person who lived there and again tried to hit his wife. The resident took her inside for protection.
He also collided with several other vehicles. Witnesses estimated the Honda Ridgeline was traveling about 50 mph. The vehicle was found disabled near 14th Street and Country Club Road, according to the affidavit.
Police obtained a warrant to arrest him at his new residence in the 1100 block of S. Nebraska Avenue, but he was not there.
Webb had fled to Las Vegas. He was apprehended on July 3.
He was booked into the Natrona County Detention Center this week, according to the roster.
