Police in Kurume, Fukuoka Prefecture, said Thursday they have arrested a 22-year-old woman on suspicion of attempted murder after she drove her car for 7.3 kilometers while her boyfriend clung to the hood.
According to police, the incident occurred at around 3 a.m. on Wednesday. The suspect, Mai Yamada, and her 24-year-old boyfriend had been in a bar, arguing about breaking up, Fuji TV reported. Yamada went out into the parking lot, got in her car and started to drive away. But her boyfriend tried to block her and ended up on the hood.
During the next six minutes, Yamada drove 7.3 kilometers in a zig-zag manner, trying to shake her angry boyfriend off the hood.
Police said Yamada has denied any intent to kill her boyfriend. She said she stopped the car a few times but he still wouldn’t get off. After Yamada stopped the car for the last time, her boyfriend — who was not injured — called 110.© Japan Today
