On June 21, a man, 22, and his 20-year-old passenger were traveling in Port Orange. It was reported that the driver was naked except for a scarf and a pair of socks.
As the man drove through an intersection, he allegedly hit multiple vehicles and continued without stopping.
A Florida environmental officer was in the area at the time of the incident, and they reported that they saw it take place. The officer pursued the driver, but he tried to get away.
After driving around on the track at the Old Kings Elementary School, the man headed to the Flagler County Landfill. With the authorities still in pursuit, he went into the woods near Interstate 95, and his vehicle got stuck.
Deputies from the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office ordered the driver and passenger out of the vehicle, but the man reportedly told them he was unclothed other than a pair of socks and a scarf. The passenger was clothed, but she would not get out of the car either.
According to reports, they both resisted while the police dragged them from the vehicle.
The man was transported to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility. He is facing charges on suspicion of fleeing and eluding, leaving the scene of a crash with damage to vehicle or property, resisting an officer without violence, trespassing on school grounds, possession of marijuana under 20 grams, and possession of drug paraphernalia/equipment. He is being held in lieu of $19,500 bail.
The passenger was arrested for trespassing on school grounds, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was held on a $3,000 bond.
