Patresha Isidore, 24, is facing a rather novel criminal charge after she drove nearly 20 miles with her ex-boyfriend clinging to the hood of her car. It appears that speeding with a person on your hood down the highway will only get you a misdemeanor in Florida. The bizarre videotape is below.
Warning foul language:
Notably, the man, Junior Francis, 22, is using his cellphone to call 911. Presumably, this is legal since he is not operating the vehicle . . . just holding on to it for dear life.
The police affidavit says that Isidore and Francis had an argument and Isidore decided to leave in their co-registered 2010 Mercedes. When Francis tried to stop her by climbing onto the hood, she just took off down Interstate 95. It was an incredibly reckless act, particularly with the father of your five-year-old daughter. In his car he accused Isidore of “swerving the car” — suggesting an effort to throw him into traffic.
Yet, she is only facing a misdemeanor?
