Mom Faces Charges For Driving With Son On Car Hood
Florida woman faces child abuse charges for driving with her 13-year-old son on the hood of her car.
Bridget Garcia, 32, quarreled last night with her son after she took away his phone.
The boy was also upset that Garcia (seen at right) planned to leave him at the family’s residence while she went out with her three other children.
In an attempt to keep his mother from driving away, the teen jumped on the hood of Garcia’s Dodge (pictured below).
Instead of staying put, Garcia told police that she drove about 200 feet in reverse with her child atop the car. She then drove the car forward 200 feet.
But when Garcia braked in front of the residence, her son fell off the auto. The boy, cops reported, suffered “pain to his right hip and flank” and abrasions to his right knee and right foot. Garcia told police that she dialed 911 when she realized that her son was hurt.
