Tinley Park Woman in Court For Allegedly Running Over Live-in Lover

The case against a Tinley Park woman charged with driving over her boyfriend will be back in court again next month.

Some women walk all over men. Christine Meyers allegedly drove over one.

Meyers, 23, appeared in court for a brief hearing Thursday morning and was scheduled to return Feb. 28.

The Tinley Park woman was arrested in December after an argument with her live-in boyfriend ended with her running him over with her car, police said.

Meyers was charged with aggravated domestic battery in connection with the incident that allegedly left her 21-year-old boyfriend with severe burns to his chest, back and scrotum. The scrotum burns reportedly required surgery.

Despite the grievous injuries supposedly suffered under Meyers' tires, the boyfriend reportedly at first told police someone else ran him over while he was crossing the street.

According to a police report, the boyfriend had been drinking at JW Hollstein's Saloon for five hours or so and then decided to walk alone to the home he shared with Meyers on Ridgeland Avenue. Along the way, the report said, a light-colored vehicle ran the stop sign at 175th Street and Ridgeland and hit him.

The boyfriend claimed he rolled across the vehicle's hood and after he hit the ground, the vehicle ran him over, the report said. The man's legs then were caught under the vehicle and he was dragged along 175th Street until he broke free by rolling side to side, according to the report.

The man told police he "ran" home to tell Meyers what happened. Meyers' mother then dropped him off at the emergency room at St. James Hospital and Health Center in Olympia Fields, the report said.

Keep in mind the boyfriend was in a bar for five hours and I can bet he was not drinking Pepsi. It is clearly the story that the intoxicated man told the police: "supposedly suffered under Meyers' tires, the boyfriend reportedly at first told police someone else ran him over while he was crossing the street." Key words are *supposedly* and *reportedly*. "According to a police report." The police report is verbatim what the suspect tells them. Wow he must really love her to lie like that to protect her.

it's confusing because he lied what happen. First he told police someone ran him over at 175 and ridgeland. but what really happened is She ran him over in the driveway of there home and was trying to cover it up, I bet there still together too lol

Not surprised. Nothing says "I love you" to white trash more than running you over with a car.

Perhaps flowers would be safer next time.
