I gave a lot of thought to my first tattoo, perhaps too much. It had to say something unique about me, but it also had to age well. I finally settled on a Celtic-style cross on my upper arm. Some people are far more relaxed about tats. They are totally cool with emblazoning their body with everything from cartoon characters to nekkid wimmenz. Today’s Florida man story features a man who is accused of trying to drive over a Hernando County deputy with a car. The suspect’s unique tattoos make him easy to recognize in a crowd.
The Florida Highway Patrol got a request from the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office to help with apprehending a suspect last week. Apparently, 42-year-old Allan Scott McCray was spotted at a local gas station and deputies made an attempt to arrest the man on an outstanding warrant. That’s when investigators say the man jumped in his car and attempted to leave the scene. Although a deputy commanded the man to stop, the suspect continued to drive away. That is, until authorities say the man placed his car in reverse and sped toward the deputy. The deputy was able to avoid being hit by the car.
Once the suspect left the parking lot, the deputy gave chase, but was unable to make the man pull over. Several unsuccessful PIT maneuvers were attempted. McCray’s vehicle was finally incapacitated with stop sticks that had been placed in the roadway by deputies. Once the vehicle was unable to continue, deputies say the man climbed from his still-rolling car and laid on the street face down, waiting to be arrested. The same deputy he tried to hit was the arresting officer. McCray faces charges of resisting an officer with violence, fleeing and eluding and aggravated battery. He remains in the Hernando County Jail and is awaiting trial. Source: WFLA.com
