You know how it is guys; you get into a fight with your missus, so she threats to leave, you argue with her not to, she’s adamant on leaving so you lie down in front of her ride… well, maybe most don’t go that far.
According to Highway Patrol police spokeswoman, Kim Montes, the man, Joel Santos, didn’t want his girlfriend to leave after a heated argument. Girlfriend Gloribeth Santiago proceeded to leave and hopped into her ride in the passenger seat of her cousins car.
Montes said the girls then lost sight of Santos in the parking lot and began driving off. They then felt something under the wheels. According to reports the girls didn’t realise Santos was lying in front of the car as a way of protesting their movement.
Spokewoman Montes said the girls “thought he moved but he laid down on the ground.”
