Talladega Police have arrested a man for allegedly striking his wife with the vehicle he was driving.

Mario Riggins, 29 of Sylacauga, was charged with assault in the first degree.

According to Chief Chris Carden, authorities responded to the Park Street area to investigate a domestic violence incident around 1 p.m. Thursday. After the victim was located, she was transported to Coosa Valley Medical Center for treatment.

Riggins will make his initial court appearance Friday, May 25 and is expected to receive a bond at that time. He is currently being held in the Talladega County Jail.

The woman's father, Pastor Manuel Smith, is outraged. He showed us where the alleged attack took place, along with pictures of his daughter. He says he hopes Riggins remains behind bars.

"You see these tire tracks right here. He ran over my baby twice in that car, the car up here on my daughter. Then he's going pull the car back, get out and jump on her, kick her and beat her. And thank God a deacon of the church was going back to work and saw it," said Smith.

Riggins mother does not believe her son would commit a crime like this. His wife remains hospitalized as of last night.
