OTHER THAN THAT IT WAS A LOVELY EVENING

Woman taken on chase when first date decides to flee traffic stop, Flagler deputies say

At least they had a classy meal: According to authorities, the woman had just met the Orlando-area man on a dating website and stopped at a Palm Coast Denny's for dinner before heading back to her house. 

It’s like a Carl Hiaasen novel:

Deputies said the same woman whose date went wrong on Thursday was the victim in a different and violent incident also involving a man last month.

During that incident, a man the woman was seeing, but attempted to get away from at a Bunnell store, threw himself on her vehicle, shattered her windshield then attacked her when she got out, officials said.

Guess the state.
