A Florida Man Called 911 To Brag After Fleeing From Traffic Stop
Are dunce caps still a thing?
A Florida man was arrested after deputies say he fled a traffic stop and then called to brag about it.
According to a St. John’s County Sheriff’s Office arrest report, a deputy was trying to pull over a white Hyundai for a traffic stop. The car took off, squealing its tires and speeding out of a parking lot.
An hour later he called police saying, “police definitely got the plate number but I’ve passed like 4 cops just driving around… Like what are you guys doing?”
Police were able to track the phone to a person named Nicholas Jones who was wanted for a warrant for a separate incident.
When asked why he ran from the traffic stop, deputies said that Jones smiled but said nothing. When asked why he would call 911 to gloat about it, Jones said “That cop had no right to stop me. I saw him turn his lights and sirens on and was going to stop but I didn’t want to.”
Jones is facing charges including reckless driving, fleeing and eluding, misusing 911 and violation of probation.
