The crazy world of Arthur Brown.
Arthur Brown was living in Houston with his wife when they ran into some domestic trouble, so he took their kid and moved back to his home in Diboll.

She followed, with her father, and they confronted him.

Things happened, leading to this classic 911 exchange from Brown as he was barreling down U.S. 59, as reported by KTRE:

[Angelina County] Sheriff Kent Henson said Brown went to his estranged wife's house and at some point, their child ended up in his vehicle.

Henson said the man called 911 and mentioned something about a disturbance with his wife. The dispatcher asked him if she was in the car with him and he told her, "No, my wife's on the car."

She apparently had jumped on the car when she saw Brown driving away with their kid.

Just about the time Brown was calling 911, she fell off the car, but Brown kept driving.

She's in fair condition at a local hospital; he's been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, namely his car.

OK this is a tough one for me! Yes I agree with Peachfish22 with I dont really think he should be held responcible (sp) for her dumb ass jumping on the car.. she clearly seen it was moving and anyone in their right (or wrong) mind would see if you Jump on a moving car you are bound to get hurt I mean my 18 month old could figure that out... Now on another hand I also agree that as a mother I would do whatever I could to save my childern and make sure they are not harmed or even have the possibility of being harmed and I would deffinatly Kick some ass if anyone tried to... Also I agree that yes you do hear a lot about Fathers/boyfriends Hurting children to get back at the mother... However if you live in fear of the stories you hear your always gonna be afraid.. Dont take that the wrong way Just sayin... and lastly For whoever said whatever about parental Kidnapping... No where in this story did I see anything about this women having custody of this child (I could have missed it I am a slight bit tired) but there is no Parental Kidnapping if neither one of these parents have soul custody nor a court order stating that one parent can not take the child out of Town/County/State/ECT!!! So like I said at the beginning of this post this is deffinatly a hard call... My personal Verdict Shes a Dumb ass and he should have stopped... ( However if he stopped and she still got hurt we would still have basically the same story) so hes kind of in a lose/lose situation! I just hope this child is ok and not scarred or terrified for the rest of their life after witnessing this exchange!

Okay she jumped on the car,true. But I assume her jumping on the car didn't disable the brakes, so yeah he is STILL responsible.

SHE jumped on the car and HE is charged with assault. She should be charged with stupidity. Risking your life by jumping on a moving vehicle which is being operated by someone who doesn't like you in the first place isn't going to get your child back in your arms.. it will only get you run over. :)

what would you do if your child was in that car?  As a mother I would have done the same stupid thing, risk my life to have my child safe and sound.  you can't even say that he wiouldn't have harned the child, you read to many stories of how the father/boyfriend kills their own child to get back at the mother.

Wow, you should teach critical reasoning to everyone engaged in domestic abuse and/or parental kidnapping, ideally as the event is occurring. Then you can dazzle everyone with your text-book decisions in midst of crisis. BTW, she jumped on the car and HE drove away in full knowledge. So, yes, he's charged with assault. Same as if he fired a gun in her direction, (knowning she was standing there) and she just happened to get hit; it would still be assault, genius.

Not to mention that he kept driving after she fell off. Hit, no wait - drop and run?
