March 26, 2013

Wauwatosa police arrested a 23-year-old Milwaukee man for driving a stolen car after a fight with his ex-girlfriend left the vehicle blocking traffic at the intersection of West Burleigh and North Mayfair roads.

According to the Wauwatosa police report:

The fight started after the man picked up a 21-year-old West Allis woman while giving his ex a ride to work. The ride was smooth until the man and newly picked up woman started planning "pit stops."

The talk about pit stops prompted the ex to start hurling insults at the driver. The driver escalated the fight by punching the woman in the head. The woman started swinging at him, trying to take his keys.

Police responding found the man walking down the road and the two women in the van, which was now blocking traffic.
