What fate awaits the man who denied the friend request here? Two cousins in Long Island got into a spat over a denied Facebook friend request—which ended with one cousin mowing the other down with her van. Melanie Spanopoulos, is accused of running her cousin, Giselle Penagos, over with a van after they began fighting when Penagos learned that a man who had rejected her friend request on Facebook had accepted a request from Spanopoulos. Penagos allegedly refused to get into Spanopoulos’s car, which led Spanopoulos to hit her with the van, twice. (After the first time, she put it in reverse and ran her over again.) Penagos required surgery Monday to fix a broken leg and shattered pelvis.
