A felony assault charge has been leveled against a man who allegedly nearly ran over his wife with a vehicle while their 2-year-old son sat near the driveway.The husband, Tyler N. Klasek, 30, is charged with aggravated assault, child endangerment and violating an order or protection.According to the victim’s version of events to police, the incident began when Mr. Klasek showed up at a White Street residence where his wife was to deliver some diapers. The woman said she walked outside with her young son and placed him in the front seat while she was getting the diapers.“He became irate and started grabbing her and pushing her,” said McMinnville police officer Katelyn Neal of the victim’s recollection. “He then picked up the child and placed it on the ground while he grabbed (his wife) by her leg and began driving the vehicle down the driveway while she was hanging out the truck door.”At some point, the victim says she fell down and was nearly run over.
