MIDLAND - A Midland man was arrested after police say he ran over a woman with his car.    

Police were on the lookout for a vehicle that took off from the scene of the hit-and-run at the intersection of Midkiff and Cimmaron Street. A police officer spotted 30-year-old Andrew Gonzalez in the 4500 block of Sinclair.    

Gonzalez told the officer that the victim was having trouble driving the car because it was a standard. Gonzales claims she slammed on the brakes in the middle of the road and a friend of his pulled her out of the car and started arguing with her.   

He says that he got in the driver's seat and took off because the victim started attacking his friend.      

Surveillance video showed Gonzalez running over the victim with the vehicle.    
         
The officer could smell alcohol on his breath and found open containers and marijuana inside the car.      

Gonzales is facing charged of failing to stop and render aid.
