With Friends Like These...

A woman thought she was headed to a party when her friends picked her up, but instead they drove her into the woods and abandoned her in 8-degree weather in a planned attack.

The 19-year-old from New Jersey was left outside in the cold for an hour wearing only a dress and one shoe, having lost the other one as her three friends dragged her from the car on January 16. The woman flagged down a driver who took her to the hospital, but she may need surgery for frostbite on both feet. The friends wanted revenge because the victim sued one friend's auto insurance carrier after a car accident. The three attackers now face kidnapping, assault and conspiracy charges and are free on bail. [AP]
