A Cook County judge set a September date for a Tinely Park woman charged with running over her live-in lover to return to the Bridgeview courthouse.
Christine Meyers, 24, was arrested in December after an argument with her live-in boyfriend ended with her running him over with her car, police said.
Meyers was charged with aggravated domestic battery in connection with the incident that allegedly left her then-21-year-old boyfriend with severe burns to his chest, back and scrotum. The scrotum burns reportedly required surgery.
Despite the grievous injuries supposedly suffered under Meyers' tires, the boyfriend reportedly at first told police someone else ran him over while he was crossing the street.
According to a police report, the boyfriend had been drinking at JW Hollstein's Saloon for five hours or so and then decided to walk alone to the home he shared with Meyers on Ridgeland Avenue. Along the way, the report said, a light-colored vehicle ran the stop sign at 175th Street and Ridgeland and hit him.
The boyfriend reportedly claimed he rolled across the vehicle's hood. Then, after he hit the ground, the vehicle ran him over, the report said. The man's legs got caught under the vehicle and he was dragged along 175th Street until he broke free by rolling side to side, according to the report.
The man told officers he "ran" home to tell Meyers what happened, police said. Meyers' mother then dropped him off at the emergency room at St. James Hospital and Health Center in Olympia Fields, the report said.
