Florida Highway Patrol Spokesperson Steve Gaskins provided the following statement: “Trooper Maddux attempted to conduct a traffic stop on a box truck that was driving in a reckless manner on US 19 in the area of Spring Hill Drive.  The vehicle came to a stop, and then took off again.  Trooper Maddux engaged in a pursuit on the vehicle.  The pursuit ended in the area of US 19 and SR 50.  The subject was placed under arrest.”

  • I was in the SB turn lane onto Forest Oaks with my work box truck, and stopped short as this idiot started to flee. I had the chance and considered pulling in front of him to box him in, but there were so many cars right next to him, I was afraid if he was desperate that he might start ramming cars to get away, or worse, caught in a crossfire if he had a gun. Then, with the way people are today, I would have been the legal target, and this guy would have been the victim. I’m glad no one was hurt, and that it ended shortly later.

  • Is that Dr.Lynn Hutchinson or are you pretending to be somebody else this week..LMFAO you have been a large contributor to all the drug addicts in this county. He was probably on pills from YOUR fake pill mill. You really need help, you’ll do anything for attention. Do you remember your own arrest? Or is your memory gone from indulging in the pills you prescribed .

  • Yankees are like hemorrhoids, if they come down and then go back up they’re OK, but if they come down and stay down, they’re a pain in the @ss.

  • I was on 19 approaching Forest Oaks when it was happening.I was wondering what was going on. I saw blue flashing lights up ahead which were on the State Officer pickup, a State Trooper vehicle, and the panel truck that seemed to stop and then they all moved again with the State Police and that State Officer staying with the truck. I had a funny feeling that there might be a shoot out or something so I stayed back and got onto Forest Oaks. It almost seemed like how police escort a funeral with one patrol car going ahead at the intersection to keep other cars back then moving ahead again. Glad nobody was hurt. Well done to the law enforcement officers, thank you.

  • BTW…great job to our Law Enforcement in catching the real bad guys because many are quite mistaken about who the bad guys are in the state. Uhg!

    Thursday, 8 September 2016, 12:30 am
    • I am sure they had nothing to do with catching him they couldn’t catch a cold.. He was blocked in by traffic!

  • I can’t believe I am reading these comments regarding people from the north such as myself. I am a Yankee who moved to Florida, brought a business and raised my children here..btw they are southern born. The ignorance of statements like that perplexes me. The idiots are obviously everywhere. We the people of the United State are supposed to be UNITED. It’s no wonder this country is in the state it is in. Why? Maybe because of the select igoramouses that inhabit it. I often wonder where this state would be economically without all the diversity here. Broke I would imagine. Imagine the impact if every so called Northern or Mid Western person decided not to vacation here or visit the theme parks because they are not welcomed. Imagine if all those people took there businesses elsewhere because of the lac of hospitality. Remember the reason you don’t have a State Income tax purged from your paycheck every week! I would imagine the ignorant would be shoveling shit or pumping swamp water in Welles for a living. I am not one to make rude comments or judge others for there demographic background but, these comments are just plain STUPID and sound so UNEDUCATED! Visit New York or move to New York and you would be welcomed with open arms!!! So I say loose the jealousy, hatred and anger that has overtaken your heart. It is so very sad and not becoming of you at all. That kind of talk is pure TRASH!

Google illinois, it is considered the midwest, doesn’t matter where he is from, just matters he is obviously running from somethin. Glad troopers are ok. Good job tipster and the troopers. Shame on you esquire, Doubt you ever served except maybe in a restuarant somewhere. Have a nice life stupid person. Bahahaha .

    Wednesday, 7 September 2016, 10:26 pm
  • Umm Judy Jordan…..read again it says he’s from Norige, Illinois…..i very well do believe that is “up north”. Who are we kidding? The majority of Florida is transplants from up north, but most everyone in Florida’s driving stinks!!

    Wednesday, 7 September 2016, 10:23 pm
  • Damn Yankee! Why can’t they keep that crap up there! Why do we have to be the melting pot for every A**Hole in the north to end up here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wednesday, 7 September 2016, 9:58 pm
  • I thought Illinois was North. Guess not. Fleeing to elude and attempting to run over a Law Enforcement Officer,….what a piece of Illinois Shit. If Hillary had a son he would look just like him.

  • Sorry. He is from up north. But it doesn’t change any thing. Not all southerners drive good. Half of them need to go back to school and learn to drive the right way.

    Wednesday, 7 September 2016, 7:00 pm
    • Not all southerners drive ….WELL.

      Thursday, 8 September 2016, 10:01 pm
  • J.M. Esq. I just read the same thing as you and NO WHERE did it say he was from up north. A little prejudice are we..

    Wednesday, 7 September 2016, 6:50 pm
    • Judy, Judy, Judy, you should brush up on your reading skills. The article clearly said ” 53-year-old Marty Robert Rossier of Norige, Illinois”. Now go back and read it real slow so you can understand.

      Thursday, 8 September 2016, 9:54 am
      • It did say it although they misspelled it. Norridge, Illinois is a suburb of Chicago in the O’hare Airport area. Wondering why he didn’t stop though… Hummm ????

        Thursday, 8 September 2016, 2:01 pm
  • What was in the truck??

    Wednesday, 7 September 2016, 6:36 pm
  • At least he didn’t drive into a house like the dumb a$$e$ from the south J. Martin Esq.

    Wednesday, 7 September 2016, 6:29 pm
  • Another dumb a$$ from the North.

    Wednesday, 7 September 2016, 6:25 pm
    • I’m shocked to hear that comment from a lawyer and also a veteran (if your credentials are true)….In the 4 years that I’m here, I have met more dumb a$$es then up north…God Bless
