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.
