The dramatic highway stunt was an effort to retrieve a stolen purse
By PoliceOne Staff
STOCKTON, Calif. — A man risked his life by clinging to the side of a car while sprinting alongside it in an effort to retrieve a friend’s stolen purse from the inside of the vehicle.
The footage of the man being dragged by the car – which reached speeds of up to 35mph – resembles a Hollywood stunt, and as it turned out, the handbag in question was not inside, a News10 reporter told Asylum.
Miraculously, the man dragged survived, police said.
No crimes were alleged and no arrests were made following the incident.
