A Flint, Mich., car owner deserves credit for bravery, and maybe for being a bit nuts.

The unnamed man was carjacked at around 7 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 6, police told WJRT-TV of Flint.

Instead of letting the robber get away, the man grabbed his Ford Mustang's rear spoiler and hung on for dear life.

"I was driving to the gas station. He stole my car. He told me to get out. He took off. So I jumped on the back and I held on for about 30 minutes," said the determined Mustang owner.

Police got several frantic phone calls about a car sledding through the snowy streets with a man hanging on the back.

For the next half hour, police sirens wailed as the carjacker led them on a high-speed chase through city streets and on Interstates 69 and 475.

All the while, the hapless owner was clinging to the rear spoiler as traffic whipped by.

He did about 90 or 100 down 69 and 475," said the owner about the carjacker's driving.

Finally, the robber ditched the car and took off running through a snowy park. Police simply followed his tracks to a nearby house and arrested him and a presumed accomplice.

Unseparated from his Mustang, unhurt and very cold was the car's owner. Police sat him in a patrol car to warm him up.

"I wasn't letting go," he told police.

Thats my kind of guy. Devotion in the face of danger. What a hero!! More people like that and carjackers might not do it anymore. Good thing the spoiler didn't snap off!
