[tragic] Dude trying to stop girlfriend from driving drunk run over and killed.

Drunk but intent on driving, Jesenia Vega fought off her boyfriend as she left a block party and got into her car, Suffolk police said.

"You're going to get arrested," Louis Wiederer, 26, of Westbury, warned his girlfriend, a witness heard them arguing. "You can't drive like that!" With that, Vega, 27, put her key in the ignition and drove off -- as Wiederer hung onto an open window. She continued north, dragging him on the pavement, then underneath her car, before coming to a stop three blocks later, police and witnesses said.

Jay Steiner, 60, a retired nurse, who lives near the scene, rushed to the man's aid. "Oh, my God," Steiner recalled Vega telling him. "Don't tell me I just killed my fiance." Wiederer was pronounced dead at the scene. Vega was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated. She was arraigned yesterday at First District Court in Central Islip, where she was remanded to the county jail without bail. » Article here
