My husband and I had gone to dinner and had 3-4 beers in the city (D.C. area). He drove almost all the way home, where 20 miles outside of town, he needed to stop to pee. While he was inside, I opened the passenger door and hung my feet out to smoke a cigarette. When he came out of the store, he voilently grabbed the cigarrete from my mouth and crushed in the ground with something to the efeect of "DO not ever smoke around our children or in this car again." Because he has a history of domestic violence, and has been charged for this and we are currently separated due to his chardes and convictions, I panicked and locked the doors. I knew I could not sit there forever, so I climbed over the console and drove away. I was still panicked and distraught and ended up rear-ending someone.
