Some first dates are bad. Others are terrible. But rare is the first date that ends with an armed carjacking.

After exchanging several text messages last week, Nimeha Milien of West Palm Beach, Fla., agreed to go on a date with Donald McGee. The two had never met. Ted White of WPBF News interviewed Milien about the experience.

Milien explained she picked up McGee in her car. They went to a park to talk. "We sat there. We spoke. Nothing wrong happened," Milien told WPBF. "It was like normal, all conversation."

After the date, Milien dropped McGee off at a fast food restaurant where he said someone was coming to pick him up. Instead, he pulled out a gun and demanded Milien give him her keys.

"I grabbed my purse and then he fought me for my purse with a gun," Milien told WPBF. "He pointed it at my face." Milien said McGee drove away. She ran to a nearby gas station for help. A customer lent her his phone and told her to dial 911.

Police tracked down McGee and demanded he pull over, according to the Sun Sentinel, which cites the official police report. McGee refused and then eventually lost control of the car on some grass near an I-95 on-ramp. He faces charges of carjacking, fleeing police, marijuana possession, robbery with a firearm, and driving without a license.
