COLUMBIA, Tenn. -

A 26-year-old Maury County mother is lucky to be alive after a man stole her wallet and dragged her across the parking lot with his vehicle.

The woman was not seriously hurt but quite shaken after the events that transpired in a Columbia parking lot on the evening of June 22.

The woman told police she was getting into her SUV around 8:30 p.m. when a man, later identified as Glen Miller, approached her and asked her for a date.

After she declined, police said Miller, 21, reached into her car and stole her wallet.

"I think his intention was to rob me" said the woman who did not want to be identified. "He saw an easy target."

Miller jumped into his car and was preparing to leave when the woman reached through the window and grabbed the steering wheel in an attempt to stop him.

The mother told Nashville's News 2 Investigates she's unsure why she went after him and didn't immediately call police.

"I don't know why," she said.  "At first I begged him. I begged him. I said take my money. Just give me my wallet, please."

She added, "It was adrenaline."

The victim told police the man claimed he had a gun but never displayed one.

She said, "He is driving down the road and trying to push me out and saying he is going to shoot me but he couldn't get to his gun."

The woman said Miller was traveling around 30 miles-per-hour, whipping his car around in an attempt to fling her off.

"He finally knew I would not let go so he's like, 'Here is your wallet, but I am taking this money,'" she said, adding, "Before he could take my money, I snatched the wallet from him and took off running."

Multiple witnesses called police and responding officers found Miller hiding in his sister's apartment.  He was taken into custody without incident and charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated assault.

At the time of his arrest, Miller was on probation for a previous robbery.

He denied Nashville's News 2's request for a jailhouse interview.

    (CNN) - When many people sneeze, it's instinctive for others to respond by offering a "bless you" in the person's direction. That gesture got a Tennessee student kicked out of class this week after violating a classroom rule. When high school senior Kendra Turner said, “bless you,” to a classmate who sneezed, she said that her teacher told that kind of comment was for church.
