ABC News


A domestic quarrel turned into something even more frightening Tuesday, when a Georgia man sped down an interstate with his terrified girlfriend trapped on the hood of his car. Investigators said it evolved into a "outrageous case" of domestic abuse.

"She's banging on the windshield begging him to stop," a terrified witness told a 911 dispatcher.

Police arrested Jonathan Salas, of Duluth, Ga., once a group of fellow motorists finally managed to slow him down by boxing him in and gradually reducing speed. They said he reached speeds of 85 mph in the rain, while his girlfriend pleaded with him to stop.

"I see her beating on the windshield, crying, as I get close, she's begging him to pull over," witness Adam Marlatt tells ABC News. "Not only will he not look at me, but he's not even paying attention to her."

      She jumped on his hood, she knew what she was doing. He called her bluff and attempt to force herself on him. Women do this all the time. Our liberal society has enabled psychotic women to force themselves on men and when the chips are down they play the "innocent female" routine. Yeah I bet she was scared when he sped up but I also believe she embellished that when she saw other people were watching. When this stuff happen's men are only left with one option and that's to call the police themselves but then as soon as the cops show up the woman start's telling lie's to get him arrested. "He hit me", "He pushed me", lie, lie, lie and the man goes to jail. It's a no win situation.

      Now, I know women never do anything wrong, and that type of behavior is never justified, but let's just ask the question that would be asked if it were a woman driving with a man on the hood: "What did she do to inflame this guy?"

      I'm surprised that she didn't jump on the good Samaritans for interfering in her and her boyfriends fight

      Put him on the hood of a car. Run the same speed he did. The same distant he did. If he survives. Let him go. If he don't. It will save tax payers money.
