Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office said the woman drove to her boyfriend’s work at an excavating company after he said he wanted to talk.
The car she was driving was someone else’s Cadillac.
After his girlfriend refused to answer a question, Hunter Mills dumped a bucket full of dirt on the driver’s side of the borrowed car using a front-end loader, the office said.
Despite being inside the car when the mound of dirt fell on top, the woman was not injured.
