          Are Teen Sweethearts A Modern-Day Bonnie And Clyde?


          May 30, 2016

          Dalton Hayes, 18, and his 13-year-old girlfriend were dubbed a “modern-day Bonnie and Clyde” by some in the media after the young couple left Kentucky in early 2015 and, according to authorities, went on a two-week, multistate crime spree involving stolen cars, destroyed property and forged checks.

          In a daytime television exclusive, Dr. Phil sits down with Hayes, who is currently behind bars, having pled not guilty to multiple charges, including burglary and second-degree rape. In the video above, Hayes explains why he feels the media dubbing them a “modern-day Bonnie and Clyde” is an unfair comparison.

          “I think the news broadcaster took it way out of proportion, because it wasn’t no Bonnie and Clyde. I wasn’t like that,” he tells Dr. Phil.


          Dr. Phil points out that in the movie, the characters had guns and killed people, including law enforcement. “You didn’t do anything like that, right?” he asks.


          “No way,” Hayes replies.
