A South Carolina man has been arrested for suspicion of running over his girlfriend in his car Sunday night. WLOS reports Corey Bryce Adams, 27, was arrested on an attempted murder charge Monday night for his alleged role in the attack. Adams’ mother reportedly told police that Adams came home Sunday night, telling her he "ran over his girlfriend" and that "he had to do it because she had cheated on him."

The 22-year-old victim was walking in the Central Avenue Publix parking lot in North Charleston, South Carolina when a car hit her from behind. When officers found her, she was “bleeding profusely,” and suffered a head injury with swelling above her left eye. She was then taken to an area hospital.

At the crime scene, investigators found plastic pieces they believed to be from a car headlight, and witnesses said the girl was hit by a man driving a white Ford Focus. When detectives went to interview Adams, they noticed a white Ford Focus with a broken windshield and headlight parked in his driveway. Adams then proceeded to lock himself in his home and tell officers he was going to kill himself, before eventually giving himself up. He was arrested on an attempted murder charge and granted a $100,000 surety bond.
