Man throws self from moving car to escape ex-girlfriend

Everyman feels the urge to punch a woman at some point in his life, but few will avoid the situation by throwing themselves from a moving car. A 25-year-old Australian man did just that while having an intense argument with his ex-girlfriend. From

“Police rushed to the central business district in Darwin, Australia on Tuesday afternoon after receiving a report that a man had been run over at that location. They arrived to find the man sprawled out on the ground, but he soon revealed that he had in fact jumped out of a car, which was going 20 kilometres an hour.

He reportedly told police that the argument with his ex had become so heated his only options were to, "jump out of the car or punch her in the face."”

Making matters even more notable, police say the 19-year-old ex-girlfriend was driving without a proper license. 

Kids in Darwin, Australia these days. Really.
