          A Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde, or Confused Teens in Love?

          PLAYING A Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde, or Confused Teens in Love?

          Dalton Hayes, 18, and his 13-year-old girlfriend have been dubbed a “modern day Bonnie and Clyde” by some in the media after the young couple left Kentucky and reportedly evaded police during an alleged two-week, multistate crime spree involving stolen cars, destroyed property and forged checks. In a daytime television exclusive, Dr. Phil talks to Dalton, who is currently behind bars, having pled not guilty to multiple charges. Plus, don’t miss a shocking update on Dalton and his girlfriend.

          Teens on the Run

          Dalton Hayes, 18, and his 13-year-old girlfriend made headlines in January when they allegedly embarked on a dangerous, interstate crime spree, reportedly leaving a trail of chaos in their wake. When the pair left their small, western Kentucky hometown, Dalton was set to appear in court on prior burglary and theft charges — though he denies that is why they left.

          Over the next two weeks, authorities allege the young couple forged checks and stole three vehicles — one reportedly with firearms inside — while evading police across the South. They eventually were apprehended by law enforcement in the early morning hours of Jan.18 in Panama City Beach, Florida, as they slept inside a pickup truck.

          Dalton maintains he was only trying to protect his girlfriend, who he says told him she was being abused at home — an allegation her family absolutely and completely denies. He also claims he did not know his girlfriend was only 13 during most of their relationship.

          Dalton has pleaded not guilty to a string of charges, including burglary and second-degree rape.

          Plus, hear from Dalton’s mother, Tammy. What does she think should happen to her son?

          The Dr. Phil show spoke to Dalton’s mother, Tammy, who claims that since this interview, the young girl, the so-called Bonnie to Dalton’s Clyde, had a baby. Tammy says she and Dalton have not been allowed to see the baby, and she’s hoping there will be a DNA test done soon to confirm whether or not he is the father. Dalton will be in court soon to face charges, including second degree rape, violation of custodial interference, criminal trespassing and criminal mischief.
