HOUSTON, TX (WTXF) - A Houston lawyer is lucky to be alive Wednesday morning after she jumped onto a moving vehicle driven by the robbers who had just broken into her car.
The video of her bold split-second decision is unbelievable.
Former City Council Member Jolanda Jones is a lawyer who fights for justice for others, but now there is dramatic proof that she’s willing to risk her life to stop a criminal—and it’s even caught on camera.
The video shows Jones jumping onto the robber’s getaway car after witnessing them break into her car and steal her purse and computer at KCOH, the radio station where Jones co-hosts the show, Powerbrokers.
She fought with one of the thieves directly, and the incident did not stop even after the getaway car ran over Jones’s foot.
She merely walks back to her car and then continues to chase them.
Jones talk show co-host, Paris Eley watched the entire event unfold while he was live on the air.
Luckily, Jones was left with only a swollen foot and a few scrapes, but she claims she would not do the same thing again and that the video is now in the hands of investigators.
She is also now working to get more surveillance video from the other businesses near KCOH.
