Get Out of My Car

At the end of the work day most people are tired, still have many things on their minds and just want to get home. Ejecting a stranger from your vehicle prior to battling rush hour traffic should not be part of anyone’s commute.

This happened recently to the manager of a local restaurant. At the end of her shift, she discovered an unknown male sitting in the passenger seat of her car. Several employees tried to get the man out by opening the door, but he kept shutting it. After several attempts to remove him, the man locked himself in. Officers arrived and were able to remove the young man from the car. It appeared he had been drinking.

The manager was not interested in filing charges since the man did not cause any damage to the vehicle and did not take anything. A family member responded to the scene and accepted responsibility for the man.

This is a good reminder to make sure you lock your car when you are going to be away from it. After a long day at work this would be the last thing you would want to deal with.
