I'm not sure which of these two is dumber--the man driving with his wife on the car, or the wife for jumping on the windshield for the ride. They deserve each other. Their sentence: they they should be chained together and forced to remain married. And their vehicles should be impounded so they are not a danger to the rest of us!

Unbelieve how stupid some people can be, I think they should both be locked up, and kept off our streets.

"I'm Guilty" before any charges; this guy really wants to get away from his wife; even with a 15 year sentence. wow. He should have just called the cops that night for false imprisonment when she did not want him to leave. Then she would be the one in jail; either way, he got his wish. Good Luck to him. And yes, mentally, he is not all there, this is a crazy trial, where will it be, I might take a day off to be there in court.

We Pleasantonians are compassionate and concerned about all the rational, sane, well intentioned & responsible citizens of our nearby corner of the globe. We are neither tolerant nor obliging towards the foolish, ignorant, drug addicted or in this case all of the above persons who see no problem with endangering our town, citizens and families in our community.

Darwin didn't get them this time but stupidity like that is only bound to get one or both of that couple in the news again someday.
