A woman’s first date went from bad to worse when she was confronted by armed officers after her companion ran off following a police chase.
After visiting a Denny's in Florida with a man she met on a dating website, the woman was a passenger in his car when police tried to pull him over for a minor traffic violation.
Officers tried to stop the car over a tag infringement but the driver raced away at high speeds before getting out of the vehicle and fleeing the scene at around 2am in Palm Coast on Thursday.
The unidentified woman was left to deal with the Flagler County sheriff's deputies who used stop sticks to disable the vehicle and bring it to a halt.
Authorities said the same woman was involved in a separate incident last month in which another man she was with jumped on her car, smashed the windshield and knocked her unconscious.
The man involved in Thursday's chase with officers was driving erratically and over the speed limit, police said.
As the officers approached the vehicle they discovered the driver had run off into nearby woods.
In body camera footage, the woman could be heard telling authorities that the man said he had to get away from the cops because he didn't have a valid license.
The woman told officials she was scared due to his erratic driving, didn't know his last name and was told two different first names.
One deputy told the woman as officer approached the vehicle: 'Anyone else in the car come out with your hands up...do it now.
