Woman Speaks Out About Why Man Was Travelling On The Bonnet Of Her Car

A 24-year-old woman was arrested after she drove at 70 miles per hour with her ex-boyfriend hanging onto the bonnet of her car and it genuinely looks like something from The Fast and the Furious.

But now the driver, Patresha Isidore, has explained what led to her speeding away with with 22-year-old Junior Francis on the hood.

Isidore, from Florida, told 7News that she drove off with her ex-boyfriend on her Mercedes-Benz because he didn't want her to leave their home to pick up the couple's daughter.

She said: "I had to go get my child. I wasn't going to deal with any foolishness. He had plenty of times to get off the car. He didn't want to stop."

The viral video of the incident was filmed by another driver and has been shared a whopping 22,000 times, racking up over one million views.

The guy who recorded it then panned the camera around to his own speedometer, which showed that they were travelling at 70mph.

Isidore was arrested after the incident but has now been bonded out of jail.

That's when she was able to tell 7News about what triggered the strange stunt. Isidore said she had no choice but to hit the accelerator after feeling threatened by her ex partner.

She explained: "He was threatening me, so I was scared, so of course I wasn't going to stop and let him get in the car."

According to Isidore, they had a rocky relationship and she was actively trying to file a restraining order against him, despite the fact that they both still live together.

"That guy is crazy," she said. "He won't leave me alone. We broke up about eight months ago.

"When I was on the 95, I thought like, 'Hey, this is crazy' or whatever. I actually pulled over to Ives Dairy and tried to stop the car, and he still didn't want to get off."

Eventually the ex-boyfriend did give up and got inside the vehicle. When they stopped Isidore was placed in handcuffs and hauled off to jail.

Francis told 10 News that both he and Isidore needed to use the Mercedes, which they co-own.

He said that Isidore beat him to it, so he jumped on the bonnet outside their home to keep her from leaving.

Francis explained: "She turned the engine on, dropped it in reverse and turned. That's when things took a turn.

Francis said he was actually on the phone with police as he hung onto the hood while Isidore drove from Broward to Miami-Dade counties and back.

"She's swerving the car and I'm on top of the car," Francis told a dispatcher, according to the 911 call. "I really need help."
