As the woman drove down a deserted highway, she noticed a lone pair of headlights quickly approaching her car from behind. When the car came closer she noticed that it was going to overtake her.
The car drew up beside her, but then the driver suddenly swerved back behind the car. She started getting nervous and kept an eye on the strange car in her rear view mirror.
He pulled up dangerously close to her rear bumper and began flashing his high beams at her. The headlights dimmed for a moment, but then the high beams flashed again and the high beams and the car behind her surged forward. The car followed her, very closely, and on tight curves, or over hills, he would flash this high beams on and off.
The frightened woman took out her mobile phone and dialled 911. When the operator answered, the woman screamed into the phone “A car is following me? He keeps tailgating, and blinking his lights at me!”
The woman gave her address, and in a few minutes she saw the red and blue lights of a police car in the distance. She breathed a sigh of relief as she pulled into her driveway, but suddenly the strange car pulled into the driveway behind her and began blinking its lights on and off like a maniac.
The police car screeched to halt on the woman’s lawn, the two police officers jumped out out with their guns drawn. They pulled the man out of the strange car and forced him to lie face down on the lawn. Then they handcuffed him as he screamed, “There’s someone in her car! There’s someone in her car!”
The two policemen suddenly pointed their guns in the woman’s direction and fired. The woman screamed, but when she turned around, she saw the bloody corpse of a murderer fall out of her back seat. There was a large butcher knife still clasped in his cold, dead hand. The police searched her back seat and found duct tape, a blindfold, and a pair of handcuffs lying there.
The woman realized that the man in the strange car had been trying to save her. When the police released him, he explained that, he had seen a man with a butcher knife rising up behind her. Just as the madman was about to stab her, he flashed his high beams and the figure crouched back down.
“I flashed my high beams every time I saw him raise his knife!” he said.
Following the Orem vs. Mountain View football game, the LIA hosted a dance, Noche de Balie.
Students gathered in the gym to raise money for LIA, and dance to a mix of Latino music.
Students could pre purchase tickets for $3 and the payment was $5 at the door.
“How do you dance to this?” said Jackson Mcbride when one of the Latino songs came on. He then proceeded to simply move his feet and laugh.
Students danced individually, with partners, and in groups to the fast moving music. Students formed circles to allow a few individuals to dance in the middle, and nearing the end of the event, students lined up for a big group dance.
“It was so fun!” said Tristen Noble, a senior at MV. “The music was great and everyone was dancing. There were people doing moves they've never done before. It was actually quite impressive.”
At the end, the LIA presidents spoke and thanked all the students for coming.
The bruins ended with the “Let’s Get Weird” cheer, and students left the gym and went home.
