College kids love to have some good stories to tell when they get back from Spring Break. And 18 year old Dominic Glass from Land O’ Lakes will have a doozy. He’ll be able to tell his tale of being taken into custody twice in a matter of minutes. But then again, most of his friends will probably already know about the story. The video has gone viral on the internet, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Clearwater Police were dealing with some Spring Breakers who were overdoing it. There were reports of fights and “disorderly conduct.” Glass was one of the ones cuffed and put in the back of a police SUV. Someone had the bright idea to open the door to let Glass out. Glass made a run for it and his “Run Forrest Run” moment was captured on social media networks like Tik Tok and Instagram, garnering hundreds of thousands of views.
Glass will now face more charges for the (attempted) escape including resisting an officer. Channel 8 reports the suspected door opener has been arrested too… 18 year old Adam Asad of Oldsmar. Police say Asad bragged that he was going to be famous for his efforts. [Source: Tampa Bay Times, Channel 8]
