According to authorities, the 48-year-old suspect was driving a 2014 green four-door Honda on Interstate 95 when he was pulled over by police for allegedly driving on the wrong side of the road. The officer who stopped the suspect ran a license check and learned that the suspect had an outstanding warrant for his arrest; he had allegedly violated parole.
The officer then attempted to place the suspect under arrest. However, after placing handcuffs on the suspects’ wrists, the suspect reportedly escaped and got back into his vehicle. The suspect then allegedly drove away and headed northbound on Interstate 95.
At some point during the chase, the suspect reportedly stopped the car and tried to flee on foot. According to officials, the suspect hopped a fence around Northwest 14th Avenue.
Boynton Beach police conducted a subsequent search of the area for several hours. Although police did not find the suspect, a security guard later spotted the suspect at the Tri-Rail Station on High Ridge Road. The suspect had handcuffs dangling from one wrist.
After being arrested and charged, the suspect was transported to Palm Beach County Jail.
