Man accused of running over girlfriend's lover

PHOENIX (AP) - A Flagstaff man has been arrested near Buckeye after he allegedly ran over a woman who was apparently having an affair with his girlfriend.

Maricopa County Sheriff's officials say 42-year-old George Joseph Walten is being held on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault.

It was unclear Tuesday if he has a lawyer yet.

According to court documents, Walten allegedly ran over a woman with his pickup truck during a confrontation last Sunday morning.

Authorities say the woman suffered compound fractures of one leg and other injuries.
