Title is not quite right, he's being charged with attempted manslaughter (poging tot doodslag), not attempted murder (poging to moord).

There's no suspicion of an intention to kill the ex.

He usually drives Audi RS models so he probably just understeered into the spot where the girl was standing. In seriousness though if the woman can prove she was injured and Jos actually fled the scene he's probably looking at some (not much, since it is the Neherlands) jailtime, but for now he denied the accusation so who knows...

For a site that only recently deleted any comments about Jos' wrongdoings in the past you should probably change the title...

Not defending this wife-beater, just sayin'.

Amazing. Only a couple of weeks ago I had multiple posts removed for commenting on Jos' previous arrests. Will I also have this one removed?

Jos has claimed that the car he was driving during the incident at the time did not have any electronic aids such as traction control, ABS, active suspension etc. He also claims that his former teammate Micheal Schumacher who recently bought the exact same model of car was apparently found using TC, ABS and active suspension on a recent visit to the "Nederlands."

I will try post again on this subject!, this time he turned himself into police after fleeing the scene following an accident involving his 24 year old ex girlfriend, he was previously accused of beating his girlfriend, in 2008 he was fined and sentenced to three months suspended jail time over an assault involving his ex wife, about 10 years ago he was convicted of assault after fracturing a man's skull at a car track.

I've seen this idiot at the kart track with his son and he is always looking to pick a fight with people who race against his son. If the boy does not win he goes crazy and get very aggressive with the boy.

He needs to be thrown in Jail...
