This guy ain’t isht. A young Florida woman spent the weekend of her 21st birthday regretting taking a chance on a blind date.
The date started as an evening stroll on the beach, but ended in an armed carjacking in a Wendy’s parking lot.
Donald Bernard McGee Jr., 19, of Hollywood, courted a Lake Worth woman after the two exchanged text messages and photos and agreed to meet Friday, according to a Boynton Beach Police Department arrest report.
After a walk through the Boynton Ocean Inlet Park, the date ended when they headed to a Wendy’s parking lot at around 10 p.m. to wait for McGee’s brother to pick him up, the woman told police.
That’s when McGee whipped out a gun and demanded she get out of the car, according to the arrest report. The woman said she ran to a nearby BP gas station to flag down a Good Samaritan to call 911 as McGee took off.
The woman hopped into the Good Samaritan’s car and the two chased her 2000 Honda Civic as McGee drove to the Interstate 95 southbound on-ramp at West Boynton Beach Boulevard, according to the arrest report.
When police caught up with the car they flipped on their lights and sirens, but McGee wouldn’t stop, according to the report.
McGee lost control of the car in the grass near the I-95 southbound on-ramp at Yamato road, according to the report. He tried to run, but was ordered to get down at gunpoint by a K-9 officer.
McGee told police he took the Tri-Rail and a bus to meet the woman at the beach, but said it was the woman who carjacked him and that she was the one who pulled out the gun, according to the report.
McGee told police he took off to “get out of the area” but couldn’t explain why he didn’t stop on the highway, according to the report. He also couldn’t explain the .380-caliber Kel Tec handgun officers say they found in the car’s center console.
He was arrested Friday and booked into Palm Beach County Jail on Saturday. He faces charges of carjacking with a firearm, maryjane possession, fleeing police, driving without a valid license and robbery with a firearm. McGee is being held in lieu of $15,000 bail.
Hence why most parents want to meet your dates before they take you out and why it’s probably never a good idea to hang out with someone you don’t really know like that — especially not alone in a car or a home.
This young lady learned a valuable lesson and is blessed to be alive. As for the young punk who did this to her, well he ain’t isht, and we’re pretty sure his karma is catching up to him sooner or later if the court system doesn’t do the trick .
