Woman Seen Driving on I-95 With Man on Hood Arrested: Police

A South Florida woman who was behind the wheel of a car seen driving down Interstate 95 with a man on the hood has been arrested, authorities said.

Patresha Denise Isidore, 24, is facing a charge of culpable negligence in Sunday's incident that started in Lauderhill, according to an arrest report.

Video of the car driving down I-95 that was captured by a witness quickly went viral after it was posted on social media.

According to the report, Isidore was leaving to pick up her daughter when the man, whose name is redacted in the report, climbed onto the front hood of her Mercedes to prevent her from leaving.

Instead, Isidore kept driving and eventually got onto I-95 southbound, where she got into the express lanes, the report said. Isidore was driving "at speed consistent with other traffic with the victim still on the hood of the vehicle," the report said.

The report said she drove about 19 miles before finally stopping in West Park, where deputies found them. Isidore and the man live together and used to date, the report said.

"Despite having multiple opportunities to stop the vehicle and call 911, the defendant never called 911 and instead willfully put the victim in danger by driving the vehicle," the report said.

Isidore was booked into jail and later released. Attorney information wasn't available.
