A man is under arrest after police say he tried to run his wife's car down on Highway 17 early Sunday morning.
John Stewart of New Bern is charged with assault with a deadly weapon and hit and run.
Stewart's wife told them she went looking for her husband after coming home and not finding him there. New Bern police say she was near Moore's BBQ when they say Stewart drove up unexpectedly, crashed into her vehicle and left.
The 28-year-old man was jailed on a $10,000 bond.
