LONGVIEW/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - A Longview man is hospitalized and possibly paralyzed from the waist down after he was struck with a vehicle driven by his wife, police reported this morning.
Forty-four-year-old Chelsea Connor Allen, of Longview, is in the Gregg County Jail on $50,000 bond this afternoon.
According to Longview police, a patrol officer was responding to And aggravated assault call at the American dream in the 2200 block of E.
