Pasco County, Florida (Gray News) – Pasco County MPs turned on the flashing lights when they allegedly saw Gordon Ormond drive through a red light early Friday morning.
They expected him to drag his white work van to the side of the road, but the 56-year-old had other plans.
In an arrest report reviewed by the Miami Herald, MPs said Ormond continued to drive “in disorder.” At some point, he even smashed other people’s basketball goals. The deputies said Ormond tried to leave them behind after hitting the gate, accelerating to about 35 mph.
Despite this, the plan fell through when the authorities pulled out the spiked stripes. They managed to deflate three of his tires and take him into custody.
On the way to jail, MPs said Ormond had admitted to driving with suspended rights.
This was not the first time. This was the 12th. Ormond was also charged with escaping, leaving the scene and refusing to take a breath test.
