And you thought bad breath was a turnoff?
Facebook date used me as a getaway driver, says Leah Gibbs
YOU know your date’s gone wrong when you end up as the getaway driver in a robbery.
This is what happened to Leah Gibbs, 23, after she decided to hook up with a man she met on Facebook.
She thought he was going to wine and dine her; he had other plans.
At the start of the date, Adam Minton, 21, asked Ms Gibbs to drive him to a nearby betting shop (always a good sign) and she agreed to wait in the car outside.
Minutes later he ran out of the Ladbrokes, in Rhondda, South Wales, with a knife in one hand and a bag full of money in the other. Once in the car, he screamed: “Drive, drive, drive.”
Minton ordered Ms Gibbs back to his house and then tried to bundle her inside.
It was at that point that she decided the date was over. The police thought so too and swooped on the house and arrested both of them.
Ms Gibbs spent the rest of her evening in a police cell. She was set free only after Minton admitted he had acted alone.

No word on if Mr. Minton called for a second date.
