JACKSON COUNTY, Fla (WDHN) — A man wanted in two counties was arrested after authorities say they tried to pull him over driving a “makeshift vehicle.”
On Tuesday, August 8, around 8:30 p.m., a Jackson County deputy attempted to pull over what they described as a “makeshift vehicle” with no tag or headlights and only LED rope lights on the front for illumination.
According to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, when the deputy attempted to pull the vehicle over, the driver sped away but eventually stopped and ran on foot.
Deputies say they contacted the vehicle’s passenger and learned the driver was Josh Patrick, a man with two felony warrants in Jackson County, one in Calhoun County, and a suspended driver’s license.
The JCSO K-9 Tracking Team was dispatched to the area where Patrick ran, and they found him a short time later, according to deputies.
Patrick was arrested and charged with felony warrants and is also being charged with Driving While License Suspended or Revoked and Fleeing and Eluding Law Enforcement While Lights and Sirens are Activated.
