A 30-year-old Georgia man has been arrested after he reportedly threw the 13-year-old girl he met online out the window of a moving vehicle.
Derek Jerome Nelson is accused of throwing the girl out of the car during a high speed chase with police. The driver, wearing nothing but a T-shirt, eventually stopped and was arrested. He told officers he was “hooking up” with a girl he met online, and she had jumped out during the chase, according to a news release from the sheriff’s department.
Investigators discovered that the girl, who was 13, had injured her arms and legs. She allegedly told deputies that Nelson, “her 30-year-old boyfriend” had “thrown her from the car.”
Nelson was charged with assault and battery, and sexual exploitation of a minor.
