Woman Says Husband Should be Charged with Attempted Murder

Posted: Updated:

(KATV)-A Little Rock woman says her husband tried to kill her but was not charged with attempted murder.

Brian Ridley was booked into the Pulaski County Jail Jan. 17 and was charged with unlawful discharge of a firearm, possession of a firearm and terroristic act.

"Based on the interviews and conversations with the prosecutor, they did not believe there was enough criteria to charge him with attempted capitol murder," said Lt. Sidney Allen of the Little Rock Police Department.

Ridley says she was walking out of work and got into her car, when she saw Brian Ridley standing by her car. She says that when he fired shots into her car. Ridley says she sped away and that he continued to shoot at her car, leaving bullet holes all over her car.

"He kept trying to get on the side of me, shooting at me. Trying to hit me. What he did, he should be charged with what he was trying to do: attempted murder," Ridley said.

The chase continued down I-30 until Ridley says she pulled near a police station and ran for help. Ridley's jacket had two bullet holes, but she was not hit.

"God was with me. His shield of protection was all around me. Two bullet holes is in my coat, but didn't get shot. That was God," Ridley said.

Her husband is now out on bond and Ridley says she is afraid he might try to find her.

"He knows he's in trouble so he has nothing to lose," she said.

The Pulaski County Prosecutor told Channel 7 News that they review charges and can change them if necessary. Terroristic act is a class B felony, which carries a 20 year maximum and attempted murder is a class A felony, which carries a 30 year maximum.
