Hawaii Island police have charged 35-year-old Justin Lee in connection with a domestic violence incident reported Monday night in Hilo.

Lee was charged Wednesday evening with second-degree reckless endangering and two counts second-degree assault, according to the Hawaii County Police Department. His bail was set at $22,000.

He is being held at Hawaii Community Correctional Center.

The charges stem from a domestic violence incident reported about 9:30 p.m. Monday, according to police. A 41-year-old woman told police that sometime between 9 and 9:30 p.m., she was involved in an argument with Lee at their Hilo home. As the argument escalated, Lee reportedly ran over her with a car and then fled on foot. The woman was taken to the hospital and later flown to Oahu in serious condition. Police did not provide an update on her condition.
