Woman hits boyfriend with car after learning he has HIV

Josephine 06/08/2021

An Arizona woman slammed her car into her boyfriend after finding out he was HIV-positive, according to a report.

A neighbor's surveillance camera captured Misty Lee Wilke's red Mustang slamming into the man, who is seen bouncing off the hood, over the roof and flipping several times before landing face down on the pavement, authorities said.

In the video, the man appears to lie motionless for several minutes before getting to his feet and taking off running, only to stumble and fall to the ground.

The man, who was not identified, suffered head trauma and a broken vetebrae.

Thirty minutes later, Wilke called police from her home and said she had not meant to hit the man head-on, according to a probable cause affidavit published Wednesday on the site.

Wilke said the two had argued in a park after she learned he was HIV-positive and that he laughed at her when she became upset. She said she shoved him and he pulled a pocket knife on her, according the police document.

She was angry when she drove out of the park at a high rate of speed, she said, and didn't realize she had hit someone until he bounced off her car, the affidavit said.

In the video, Wilke's boyfriend can be seen on a bicycle.

Witnesses told detectives Wilke drove circles around her boyfriend in her Ford Mustang, appearing to try to hit him or intimidate him. Police said Wilke then lined up her car and floored the pedal. The vehicle hit the boyfriend head-on, sending the man flipping into the air. The man landed hard onto the pavement, suffering a broken back and head injury.

Police stated said hair, blood and scalp were located on the car, including paint from the bicycle. Wilke was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and pleaded not guilty.
