CHAMBERS COUNTY, AL (WTVM) -  A 27-year old Chambers County man has been arrested for two counts of attempted murder after deputies say he tried to kill his wife and her brother with his truck.

Investigators say last night, Robert Osborne and his wife were having domestic problems at their home, so she packed up some stuff and left the house in a vehicle with her brother.

Detectives say the wife was driving on Highway 77 and County Road 114, when Osborne tried to hit them head on with his truck.

Detectives say the wife swerved to avoid the collision and crashed, but nobody was injured.

Witnesses say they heard Osborne get out of the truck and threaten his wife and her brother.

Detectives say that's when the brother pulled a shotgun from the vehicle and Osborne left the scene.

Osborne is being held at the chambers county jail.
