Nineteen year-old Stephen Elliott, his mother, and a juvenile sibling were at Cinemark in Piqua Monday night when Elliott and his mother got in an argument.  The mother told Elliott he was an adult and could walk home.

According to Piqua Deputy Chief Tom Steiner, Elliott got on top of the vehicle as his mother drove away.  Elliott surfed the city for more than two miles without his mother's knowledge.

Motorists called the police, including one who recorded nearly the entire incident on a cell phone.  Police later took Elliott into custody and charged him with a minor misdemeanor-riding on the outside of a vehicle.
