A 29-year-old man was arrested last week after driving along Interstate 85 near Buford, Georgia with his girlfriend on the hood of his Jeep Cherokee. Jonathon Lozano Salas and his girlfriend reportedly got into an argument on September 18, and while it isn't clear how the woman ended up on the hood of Salas' Jeep, the 911 calls started pouring in once he drove onto the interstate.

Fortunately, a group of Good Samaritan motorists acted fast before the woman could be hurt or, more likely, killed. In the cell phone picture above, you can see the woman's silhouette through the windshield and her head just peeking over the roof, and according to one witness, Salas was driving on I-85 at about 80 miles per hour. One of the concerned drivers followed the Jeep for at least nine miles while on the phone with 911 and eventually several other motorists formed a rolling roadblock to get Salas to safely slow down before police arrived.

The incident, which police called an outrageous case of domestic abuse, happened about 30 miles north of Atlanta, and Salas was arrested and faces charges of felony aggravated assault, reckless conduct and simple battery.

      Why did she jump on the hood? I mean where did she see this going? Don't get me wrong here, the guy is an ass for driving onto the road with her on the hood, but there are two stupid here, not one.

      Good thing this was an old boxy Cherokee. If this was the late model with the sloping, rounded hood she\'s be worm food by now.

      I generally hate political posts... but if someone wants to make a Mitt Romney 'dog on roof' reference now would be the time.

        He put it on the roof to keep Obama from eating it.

          Yeah the moral fiber of an adult Mitt Romney vs 8 year old Obama is quite a debate. Relax... people are so sensitive :)

      All of this could have been avoided had he simply used his wipers.
