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.

That's not like a Carl Hiaasen novel, it IS a Hiaasen novel.

The video of the man jumping on the hood of her car then clopping her in the head when she tried to run would make a great background video for a commercial depicting this guy's company.

Man, if I'm that woman, I would have to consider giving up dating altogether, or at least finding another dating site.

Swipe left, lady. LEFT.

It's only a Hiaasen story if the woman is a redhead.

She can really pick 'em, can't she?

Carl is no doubt shaking his head, saying to himself, "Why didn't I think of that?"

A single guy here in Geezer Acres claims the quickest way to cut a bad date short is to stare intently into her eyes and ask her blood type and dress size.
