A judge has ordered an suburban Chicago woman to stay away from her fiance - two weeks before their wedding. Johnson County, Iowa, Judge Stephen Gerard ordered 23-year-old Rucha A. Patel on Monday not to have contact with the man after she was charged with domestic abuse causing injury.

Her fiance's name was not released.

Police says Patel drove over the man's foot and then bit his hand when he took away her keys to prevent her from driving Monday in Iowa City. It was not known why he tried to stop Patel.

Patel told the judge the marriage was scheduled in two weeks.

A call left for Rucha Patel was not returned.
