WATCH: Boy clings to roof of mother’s car as a family argument gets out of hand


A heated argument between a mother and her teenage son ended with the boy clinging to the roof of his mother’s car as it sped down the road – and concerned bystanders captured the whole thing on video.

According to witnesses Dustin Lorenzo and Jacob Batton, they first noticed the mother and son engaged in a heated argument outside a Piqua, Ohio movie theatre Monday night.

“She slaps him across the face and tells him to find his own ride home,” Lorenzo told WHIO News in Dayton, Ohio.

According to them, the mother prepared to drive away with another child inside the car.

That’s when the angry teen decided to hitch his own ride home – by jumping on the roof of his mother’s car.

Together with a third friend, Lorenzo and Batton decided to follow the potentially dangerous situation, calling police while recording the entire incident with a cell phone camera.

“She’s going about 50 miles per hour, [and] we’re just trying to keep up,” Batton said. “That’s when I decided I’m going to call 911.”

The two relayed the car’s location to police as they followed it for several miles.

At one point, the mother even waited through a red light with her son still clinging on to the roof.

Finally, the boy let go of the car at a stop sign, just moments before police arrived on the scene.

According to police, the mother will not face any charges in relation to this incident. The boy has been cited for riding outside of a moving vehicle.
