Hood Ornament?

Husband drives 100 mph with wife on hood

A man high on methamphetamine drove with his wife on the hood of their minivan for more than 40 miles, hitting speeds of 100 mph, police said on Wednesday.

The woman climbed onto the hood early on Saturday morning, outside the couple’s home in Manteca, California, because she wanted to keep her husband from driving off, said the city’s police spokesman, Rex Osborn.

But instead of stopping, Christopher Carroll, 36, sped away with his wife clinging to the hood, Osborn said.

Police said they would not identify the woman because she is the victim of domestic violence, but Osborn said she is in her 30s and a mother.

In Pleasanton, the woman rolled off the hood when Carroll slowed down, police said.

Carroll was arrested back at his Manteca home, and charged with attempted murder and domestic violence, Osborn said.

No charges were filed tied to Carroll’s methamphetamine use, which the woman described, he said.
