JUNE 28--A woman who drove nearly 20 miles with her ex-boyfriend clinging to the hood of her speeding car has been arrested on a negligence charge in connection with her vehicular antics on a Florida interstate.
Patresha Isidore, 24, was collared for exposing Junior Francis, 22, to “risk of injury or death.” Isidore, seen at right, bonded out of custody on the misdemeanor charge.
According to a complaint affidavit, Isidore and Francis had a dispute Sunday evening as Isidore began to depart a Lauderhill residence in a 2010 Mercedes registered to both parties. In an attempt to keep Isidore from leaving, Francis climbed onto the auto’s hood.
Undeterred by the man atop her Mercedes, Isidore began driving on local roads that led her to Interstate 95, where she pulled into “the express lane at speed consistent with other traffic.”
As seen above, a fellow motorist recorded Francis holding on for his life as the Mercedes approached 70 mph. [NOTE: The video’s language is NSFW.]
Francis’s terrifying ride ended when Isidore pulled up to an intersection, where they were subsequently contacted by Broward County Sheriff’s Office deputies.

Francis, who told cops that he has a five-year-old daughter with Isidore, did not want to prosecute his ex and refused to provide a sworn recorded statement.
As he held on to the car with one hand, Francis, seen at left, placed a 911 call, telling a police operator that Isidore was “swerving the car and I'm on top of the car. I really need help.”
She's being charged? She didn't make the idiot jump on the hood...he put himself in "risk of injury or death".
I would think the charges are stemming from the fact she KNEW he was on there....for at least 19 miles anyway...lolz ;)
The authorities said she should have stopped and called 911. Great idea, because the guy who was crazy enough to jump on her hood wouldn't use that opportunity to smash in her window and get to her. Self preservation. (BTW, I think I could have sling him off that hood in less than 10 miles. After all, he was only hanging on with one hand while calling 911. lol)
Hand Breakie (pun Intended)
word is she didn't see him, she was on her phone :)
Of jeezus. How did I know she was gonna be black before I clicked on the link?
