US police said a man has been arraigned after he used a forklift to pick up his girlfriend's car with her inside and carried the vehicle for several feet before dropping it.
Springfield police Sergeant John Delaney said Brian Hurley was arraigned in Springfield District Court, Massachusetts on charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Additional details from the arraignment were not immediately available.
Authorities said 41-year-old Hurley and his girlfriend argued over money as she drove him to work at a warehouse on Saturday morning.
She told police Hurley slapped her, got out of the car and kicked it, then got in the forklift.
He fled the scene but was found at his home several hours later.
