(CORUNNA) - A Fort Wayne man is facing four charges after he allegedly struck his girlfriend with his pickup truck on Tuesday afternoon near Corunna and then drove off to unload his vehicle.
The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department says the bizarre incident started on State Road 327 north of U.S. 6 after 67-year-old Michael S. Forbing made a left turn with his pickup truck that had a grain wagon on the back.
66-year-old Joan Stark had earlier gotten out of her minivan and parked it on the side of the road.
Stark tried to flag Forbing down but police say he drove over her left foot and knocked her down.
After Forbing placed Stark in her minivan, police say he drove it to the Tyson Meats parking lot on U.S. 6 and left her there.
He then drove his pickup truck to a location on County Road 4 where he unloaded the wagon along with the bed of his pickup.
After he was done there, police say Forbing drove back to Stark because he thought she had a broken ankle. She was taken to Parkview-Noble Hospital where she was treated and released.
Forbing was arrested and charged with a Level 6 felony of battery along with misdemeanor counts of domestic battery, failure to stop after an injury accident and criminal recklessness.
