ATLANTA – According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a Gwinnett County man was arrested Tuesday after allegedly putting his girlfriend on the hood of his SUV and ignoring her screams as he drove on I-85.

Channel 2 Action News reported other drivers are credited with helping her to safety. Some called 911, others took pictures of the woman’s ordeal and then motorists surrounded the SUV until the driver was forced to pull over.

“We start motioning to each other, like 'can you believes this,'” Adam Marlatt, a witness, told Channel 2.

The SUV finally stopped and officers quickly arrived and arrested the driver, Jonathon Lozano Salas. The woman, whose name was not released, was not seriously injured.

Salas, 29, of Lawrenceville, was charged with aggravated assault, reckless conduct and simple battery. He was booked into the Gwinnett County jail, where he remained Thursday night without bond.

SeenitB4 R-U-safe ;-)

Since the article said "...allegedly putting his girlfriend on the hood... " I am wondering is she dumb as bricks for staying on the hood after he put her there, or did she jumped on to stop him from leaving and he decided to gave her the ride of her life?

Well at least Gwinnett has/had a way to return the criminal and crazy illegals.

But Obama may have fixed that by royal decree also.

Stupid Girl?

She couldn't get off the hood in the time it took him to get in the vehicle?

I think she was hood surfing and got scared or something else was going on..something is not adding up here.
