What would YOU do in this situation?
On Saturday night in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, an unidentified woman was gassing up at a convenience store. While she wasn’t paying attention, 32-year old William Tighe hopped in her car and tried to steal it.
What she did next was brilliant.
And it was all caught on surveillance video.
Surveillance video posted to Tewksbury Police’s Twitter account shows the woman spraying the suspect with gasoline and struggling with him before he sped away, dragging the woman several feet.
The woman immediately ran inside the gas station, asking a clerk for help and to phone the police to report the stolen vehicle, reported WCVB.
‘She said that her car got stolen, someone took off with her car,’ a gas station attendant told FOX25’s Jim Morelli.
‘When she wasn’t paying attention, pumping her own gas, he just hopped right in and tried to take off with it. He tried to close the door and she fought back.’
The woman was taken to a hospital as a precaution. Police say her injuries appeared to be minor.
Police were quickly able to track down the red Mazda 2007 around 90 minutes later in Lowell, Massachusetts, but weren’t able to apprehend the suspect.
Tighe fled from the vehicle on foot and escaped by making his way through a wooded embankment and area, before disappearing around the banks of the Merrimack River, according to police.
The suspect was still at large as of Sunday afternoon. Police have an arrest warrant charging the man with carjacking and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
It has been said that daughters are God’s revenge on fathers for the kind of men they were when they were young. Some would say that both Doug Giles and I, given our infamous pasts, are charter members of that club. However, Doug and I know that his two wonderful daughters and my equally wonderful daughter and two granddaughters are truly God’s fantastic gift. With the wisdom of hindsight and experience Doug has written the ultimate manual for dads on raising righteous and rowdy daughters who will go out into the world well prepared- morally, physically, intellectually and with joyful hearts- to be indomitable and mighty lionesses in our cultural jungle. Through every raucous and no-holds-barred page, Doug, the incomparable Dad Drill Sergeant, puts mere men through the paces to join the ranks of the few, the proud, and the successful fathers of super daughters. The proof of Doug Giles’ gold-plated credentials are Hannah and Regis Giles- two of the most fantastic, great hearted and accomplished young ladies I have ever known. This is THE BOOK that I will be giving the father of my two precious five and three year old granddaughters. Tiger Mom meet Lion Dad! — Pat Caddell Fox News Contributor —
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
