LOS ANGELES (AP) — A California man has been accused of trying to run down his ex-girlfriend in a car after she refused his wedding proposal.
The Los Angeles Times reported Friday that Francisco Hernandez was spotted carrying a bouquet of flowers while walking down the street after the incident.
Sheriff's Lt. Andrew Berg says the 22-year-old was charged with assault with a deadly weapon.
The proposal took place Thursday afternoon at the Burger Stop.
After the woman said no, Hernandez allegedly drove onto the sidewalk, through bushes and into the restaurant parking lot, narrowly missing the woman. "Stacy Will You Marry Me" was on the car's back window.
He was later picked up while fleeing on foot.
