Police said Tuesday they have arrested a 28-year-old woman on a charge of attempted murder after she drove her car for one kilometer with her husband, 34, clinging to the hood of her car.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 3 p.m. last Saturday. TV Asahi reported that the couple are embroiled in a bitter divorce. Police were quoted as saying that they were arguing over their divorce at a hotel in Chuo Ward. As Hitomi Takaishi got into her car to leave the hotel, her husband stood in front and tried to stop it.
Police said Takaishi kept going and drove in a zigzag for one kilometer while her husband clung to the hood. When the car finally stopped, the husband fell off and asked a passer-by to call police. He suffered only light injuries, police said.
Takaishi has denied any intent to kill her husband, police said.© Japan Today
