Investigators say a 33-year-old West Ashley man yelled, "I love you baby!!" after running over his girlfriend at an apartment complex.

The Charleston Police Department charged Charles Baker with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature

On Friday morning, police responded to an apartment complex on Westchase Drive in West Ashley for an incident involving a truck and a pedestrian.

The witness told police she was outside of her apartment when she heard loud noises coming from the parking lot.

According to the witness, she saw the victim on the ground and a Dodge Ram, driven by Baker, leaving the parking lot. The witness said as Baker was leaving, he yelled, "I love you baby!!" then sped off.
