Some people are too passive when police offers stop them; other people are too aggressive. A 31-year-old man from St. Lucie County decided that he was not going to be pulled over by the police. Officers had caught a glimpse of the gentleman while he was driving on Indian River Drive. The officer started flagging the man down because he was driving 12 miles faster than the speed limit permitted in a 35-miles-per-hour zone. Instead of pulling over like a respectable citizen should have, the defendant tried to run over the police officer. He will need a St. Lucie lawyer to assist him with his case.
Eventually, the crime turned into a 91-mph high-speed chase between the defendant and the officers. The chase ended when conditions got too dangerous for everyone who was on the road. Apparently, the defendant has some warrants on him for violating his probation by using drugs. The best solution would have been to deal with the probation violation, but instead, he made the situation worse by trying to hurt a cop and then running. This person may not see the light of day for a very long time. His only hope is hiring a reputable St. Lucie criminal lawyer who can help.
The policed charged the defendant with assault with a deadly weapon. The car is the weapon. This person is facing a stiff jail sentence of up to 30 years and a fine of up to $10,000. What makes this crime so heinous is that it was against a police officer. If was not on a police officer, it still would have been bad, however. This man must hire an attorney who has connections and years of experience in the above-stated areas of practice.
