She Made a Good Decision

Francisco Hernandez, 22, stopped by a burger restaurant in Pico Rivera, Calif., to ask his girlfriend The Question. “Stacy Will You Marry Me?” was written on the back window of his car, but “She said no,” said Lt. Andrew Berg of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. “He was a little unhappy with that.” Hernandez allegedly went back to his car and drove it onto the sidewalk and tried to run the woman down, but missed her. He escaped, driving away with two flat tires. As deputies headed to his house to talk with him, “our helicopter guys spotted him walking down the street carrying a bouquet of flowers,” Berg said. Hernandez was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon. (RC/Los Angeles Times) ...Apparently he was on his way to his second choice’s place.
