ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - A man accused of chasing his wife on
State Road 436 and beating her in the middle of the street could get out of jail Monday.
The crash happened on
Investigators said that before the crash, the woman was being chased by her husband, Hicks, in a separate vehicle while she was driving eastbound on SR-436.
The woman ran a red light and crashed into another vehicle that was making a left onto I-4, police said.
Moments after the crash, Hicks got out of his vehicle, pulled his wife out of her car and began beating her, according to investigators.
Hicks was arrested when officers arrived at the scene. His wife was taken to Florida Hospital Altamonte with non-life-threatening injuries.
The other driver involved in the crash was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with serious injuries, police said.
Hicks was charged with domestic
In court on Monday, prosecutors asked that Hicks be held without bond, but his lawyer said that didn't make sense.
"If what's in this affidavit it correct, it's nothing to be proud about, but it's still a first-degree misdemeanor," his defense attorney said.
Hicks' bond was set at $5,000, but he'll only be released once fitted for a GPS monitor, authorities said.
