A Chippewa Falls woman accused of hitting her estranged husband with an SUV on the May 8 recall primary election day has been charged with second-degree reckless endangerment-domestic abuse (a felony) and misdemeanor battery-domestic abuse.
Amanda M. Radle, 30, 18979 County O, Chippewa Falls, made her initial court appearance on Tuesday.
Judge Roderick Cameron set a pre-trial conference for 3:15 p.m. July 12, and a review hearing for 10:30 a.m. Aug. 8.
Chippewa Falls Police said Jeffrey Radle, 36, had head, neck and back injuries after being struck by a Dodge Durango driven by Amanda Radle on May 8. That was the date of a primary in the recall election of Gov. Scott Walker and other politicians.
Jeffrey Radle’s mother, Kay Radle, told The Herald the argument was over other matters and was not about the recall election.
The incident happened near the intersection of Superior and West Cedar streets.
Amanda Radle is also known as Amanda M. McNamara, according to court records.
