A 36-year-old man accused of pushing his girlfriend out of a moving vehicle on Interstate 95 last week was arrested Monday in Baltimore and charged with first-degree attempted murder, according to police.

Detectives arrested Dante Williams, of no fixed address, without incident at a relative's home in the 1700 block of Winford Road, according to Maryland State Police spokesman Greg Shipley.

Williams was also charged with first- and second-degree assault and violating the terms of probation on a previous assault charge against the same victim in Baltimore County, Shipley said.

Troopers said that around 6 p.m. on July 19, Williams, the victim and Williams' 14-month old son were traveling south on I-95. He is accused of punching the woman in the eye during an argument.

According to police, Williams is also accused of pushing the woman out of the vehicle after she had unbuckled her seat belt and opened the door. The SUV Williams was driving was traveling about 60 miles an hour, police said.

The woman was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center with serious injuries.
