Cellphone video captures man clinging to the trunk of a sedan driving down Interstate 77 in Charlotte, North Carolina. (June 30)


CHARLOTTE, North Carolina — Police in North Carolina say a man clung to the back of a moving car as it drove down an interstate highway.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police spokesman Keith Trietley said Monday that the man was trying to stop a woman who drove off after the man assaulted her inside a store. A police report said the man grabbed the woman's arm and pulled her down during an argument.

Trietley said the man was not injured from riding on the car Saturday. He said the woman does not want to press charges against the man. He did not release their names.

Trietley said he could not say how long the man rode on the back of the car on Interstate 77 or how fast the vehicle was moving. He said police were contacted by motorists, one of whom recorded the ride on video.
