(St. George-AP) -- Virgin Town Councilman Kenneth Cornelius and his wife have been arraigned on misdemeanor charges stemming from a domestic dispute.

Cornelius was arraigned yesterday in Fifth District Court via closed-circuit television from the Purgatory Correctional Facility, on two counts of reckless endangerment, both class A misdemeanors.

His wife, Tina Cornelius, was arraigned on one count of domestic violence in the presence of a child, a class A misdemeanor, and one count of disorderly conduct, a class C misdemeanor.

According to police reports, the Corneliuses were involved in an argument about 1:30 p.m. Saturday near mile post 14 on Utah nine.

One witness reported that Tina Cornelius pulled the couple's one-year-old son out through the window of their car and Kenneth Cornelius began to drive off, causing his wife and child to fly over the hood and be dragged a short distance.
