He should have waited until the car stopped at a red light.
A 35-year-old Wisconsin man suffered a brain bleed after he tumbled out of a moving car to escape a fight with his girlfriend, police say.
The Madison man had taken his girlfriend out for her birthday Monday night, but as the pair was heading home in the backseat of a friend's car, he said he'd had enough of the bickering and opened the door, even though the car was moving.
"He wanted to get out, and get out now," Madison police said in a report.
The man, who was intoxicated, fell out of the car onto busy East Washington Ave. and hit his head. He was taken to hospital with a brain bleed, police said.
The couple had apparently been arguing over a possible move to another state.
