Rocky Rudolph Jr Was Pulled Over For Excessive Window Tint, He Dragged A Cop While Attempting To Flee | June 30
Seminole County: A traffic stop for window tinting led to a nearly eight-hour manhunt Saturday after an armed man dragged a Seminole County deputy with his car while trying to flee. Police pulled over Rocky Rudolph Jr for a window tinting infraction around 9:40am.
According to reports, the deputy smelled marijuana and that’s when Rudolph turned combative. Rudolph tried to flee and dragged the deputy twice at 40 to 50 mph down County Road 46A near I-4.
The deputy was able to fire shots at Rudolph, who was also armed, striking Rudolph in the leg. The sheriff said the deputy was thrown from the car just before it entered I-4, where Rudolph lost control and bailed from the car on foot.
It wasn’t until almost eight hours later that law enforcement officers caught up with Rudolph in Longwood.
He’s facing charges of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer.
