"I had the thought in my head. Do I go after my purse or do I stop my car. And the price tag of my car flashed through my head," she said.

Surveillance video shows the suspect slam on the breaks twice to get her off.

But she wouldn't budge.

"He was laughing while I was on my car and he was trying to throw me off. So zero remorse."

While she admits the danger never crossed her mind, she's glad it ended up stopping the thief from taking her car.

He did however take off with her purse, phone, and wallet.
