Report: Wife Drives 2 Miles With Soon-to-Be-Ex on Hood
Gainesville Sun ^ | Monday, April 16, 2012 | Hannah Winston

Posted on 04/17/2012 11:44:11 AM PDT by nickcarraway

Andre Xavier Rentz reportedly told officers he knew his wife was going to run into him with the red minivan. But instead of jumping out of the way, he jumped on the hood.

She decided to take him for a two-mile ride, according to a Gainesville Police Department report.

Earlicia Latricia Young-Rentz, 31, of Gainesville, was arrested on a charge of domestic aggravated assault around 5 a.m. Monday.

Young-Rentz drove her husband to his residence after the couple had been fighting about their soon-to-be finalized divorce, according to an arrest report. Young-Rentz and Rentz have been married since 2009.

He told officers that when she dropped him off she intentionally drove the minivan at him. To avoid getting hit, he jumped on the vehicle’s hood.

The husband said he repeatedly asked her to stop, but she refused. He said he didn’t jump off the hood because he was worried he would get hurt. He did not have any injuries.

He told officers his wife would only slow the car for stoplights and stop signs, but did not stop completely. The speed of the car is unknown, according to Cpl. Angelina Valuri.

Young-Rentz told officers she accidentally called 911, according to Valuri. When the dispatcher heard a man yelling to stop the car, they asked what the noise was. Young-Rentz told the dispatcher her husband was on the hood. She finally stopped, about two miles later, in a Publix parking lot.

Young-Rentz also was arrested on Jan. 4 on a charge of domestic battery. According to the report, she and her husband were splitting up and she wanted him to leave their home. When he didn’t go, she tried to push him out. He was left with scratches across his face.

The January case against her was dropped because, according to a notation in online court records, officials were unable to find the victim.

I’d say divorce is a good decision for this couple.

Never to have married would have been a better decision!

I’m just surprised a black couple where the woman was named “Earlicia Latrecia”, decided to actually get married.

If that is not a character name from SNL or Dave Chapelle’s Show....

Not that it lasted, but still... They at the very least took an hour of their precious time to go down to the county courthouse, away from the tv and chicken wings, and made it official for a couple years.

I had something like this happen right in front of my house not too long ago... Black couple arguing in the car, they stop the car, get out of the car, argue some more in the middle of the street, lady climbs into the car and gets behind the wheel and starts to drive away, man jumps on the hood of the car all the while carrying on the argument... she continues to speed up and drives off down the street with him still clinging to the hood.

The real kicker is the last sentence: The January case against her was dropped because, according to a notation in online court records, officials were unable to find the victim.

The last paragraph in the story says charges were dropped because they “couldn’t find the victim.”

Maybe they ought to check under her car. She might have been more successful later on.

It's a Rawson 30. They made most of their craft prior to understanding the strength of fiberglass. She was a floating brick s**t house with at least 1/2" thickness of glass in the cabin...many times that in the hull. She carried 5000lbs of lead in her keel (19000 overall). We lived aboard her for four of the best years of our lives. She had a lot of weather helm when we got her. We made a new compliment of sails with the headsail being much smaller than the original. After that modification we easily beat any other Rawson we ever raced (sailed with, same thing). She was the "Dorothy Mae"

I meant to say we changed the main sail, not the head sail.

(a) Does Earlicia Latricia remind anybody of Bunifa Sherifa Latifa... of Mad TV fame?
(b) Thinking back about my first husband, maybe she had her reasons
(c) Never mind.

That is a lot of keel on her. She looks like she could handle some pretty rough stuff.

Did all my sailing off of Southern CA. Used to run over to Catalina just about every weekend. Miss it pretty bad sometimes.

She was a beautiful heavy weather boat. We’d be heading out when others were heading for shelter. She had a PHRF in the 4.9 range as I recall. We often trolled for salmon under head sail alone, heading up when a 20+ lb’er would take the line.

Hey, if she was married to William Shatner, this would be considered an audition.

That’s funny. We’d drag a line over to Catalina sometimes. Never caught anything but Barracuda.

I’m on the Puget Sound these days. It’s all Salmon and Crab now.

We were moored at Orcas Island (Deer Harbor). We worked there year round but had the winters for sailing. We used to ply the waters between Puget Sound and the top of Vancouver Island. There are no finer cruising grounds on the planet IMHO.

The comment was based more on the name than the action, nick. I understand that whites are equally as dumb.

Boyz-on-the-hood?

When I was young and foolish, I voluntarily got on the hood of a car with my friend behind the wheel.
I knew I'd made a mistake when he hit the gas. I was hanging on for dear life while he was weaving back and forth on the road for what seemed like an eternity.
When he stopped, he was laughing so hard as he was telling me that my eyes were as big as saucers. He also told me he had gotten up to 70 miles per hour. It certainly felt like he was going 70. I was so angry I wanted to wring his neck.

Anyhoo, this guy was better off being on the hood than under the wheels. It IS an adrenaline rush. Count me as a member of the Boyz on the Hood club, but not an active member.
