Gwinnett County, GA (The Weekly Vice) - Jonathon Salas, of Gwinnett County Georgia, was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly sped down a highway at 85 miles per hour with his girlfriend clinging to the hood of his car.
According to Gwinnett County Police, the horrifying experience began when Salas and his girlfriend got into an altercation at their apartment. Salas stormed out to his vehicle while his girlfriend, 19-year-old Leidy Amu, begged him not to go.
When Salas got into his car to leave, Amu reportedly jumped onto the hood of the car hoping it would stop him from driving off. Apparently it didn't.
Investigators say Salas sped out of the parking lot and made a sharp U-turn in route to Interstate 85. Investigators are surprised the woman wasn't thrown from the vehicle at that point.
Salas then sped onto Interstate 85, reaching speeds of 85 miles per hour while the woman beat on the vehicle's windshield begging him to stop.
Luckily for the victim, motorists became aware of her ordeal and boxed Salas in with their vehicles. The good Samaritans then gradually slowed their vehicles down, forcing Salas to slow to a stop. One motorist took a photograph of Salas's vehicle during the high drama event.
During an interview at a local radio station, Amu blamed herself for the ordeal, stating that she provoked the confrontation. She then defended her asshat boyfriend by stating "We all make mistakes."
Salas was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail and charged with aggravated assault, reckless conduct and simple battery.
