A Kennebunk man is being held on $2,000 cash bail at York County Jail on charges that he ran over his ex-wife with a pickup truck at the Kennebunk Middle School parking lot Friday night.
Philip Bundy, 42, was being held on charges of reckless conduct and aggravated driving to endanger in connection with his ex-wife Chanin Hale, 40, of Old Orchard Beach. Police said Bundy has faced prior criminal charges but are not able to provide details until Monday.
Kennebunk Police Lt. Anthony Bean Burpee said Hale fell to the ground during an argument with Bundy at about 6 p.m. and was run over by Bundy’s pickup truck. Bundy remained on the scene until rescue personnel and police officers arrived, police said.
Hale’s brother, Loren Hale, said his sister was at the school to watch her daughter, a basketball cheerleader, perform at the last game of the season. He said his sister had filed for custody of the ex-couple’s two daughters earlier that day.
Police said they could not confirm the cause of the argument but said it involved several different topics.
Bean Burpee said there were conflicting stories by witnesses about what happened and police are continuing to investigate the incident.
Hale was treated and released from Southern Maine Medical Center in Biddeford.
Bundy is scheduled to appear in court March 7.
