When it comes to finding love, you gotta crack some eggs to make an omelet. Basically, before you find "the right one," you're more than likely going to encounter a few wrongs in the form of some truly bad dates. It's just something you come to expect, but never would anyone expect what happened to one Massachusetts woman in 2016.
Earlier this week, Christopher Castillo was sentenced to three years in state prison after pleading guilty to armed robbery. The charge stems from an incident where Castillo met a woman on a dating app, had her pick him up from his parents' home in Chepachet, Rhode Island, and drive 30 minutes to North Attleboro, Massachusetts, so he could rob the Bristol County Savings Bank.
When did she become aware of Castillo's intent of robbing a bank? When he ran back inside her Nissan Maxima with sunglasses and a hat on, a gun, and $1,000 in cash, and told her, "F**king go!" In a panic, she fled the scene with him, but later pulled over and walked away from her car when she saw North Attleboro Police cruisers behind her in pursuit.
If Castillo wasn't screwed enough, he also "violently struggled" with officers after being pulled from her car, and spit on them as he was being subdued. He was given an additional two years in the Bristol County House of Corrections for that stunt. Meanwhile, the woman wasn't charged for what turned out to be the "worst date ever."
At least she can be sure that you can only go up from here when trying to find love on a dating app.
