Deputies brought in a man who led them on a crazy police chase that involved both county deputies and Florida Highway Patrol. It was all caught on dashcam.

On Thursday, April 1, the police chase began when Alachua County Deputy Shon McGuigan saw the Chevy Suburban driving recklessly. Not only did the driver flee, but he threw and alcoholic drink out the window. He even flipped the finger to the deputy.

Speeds near 100 mph were reached in the chase. A PIT maneuver was attempted, which resulted in the Suburban ramming the deputy. Stop sticks were tried as well, but were unsuccessful.

Finally, a PIT maneuver ended the chase, with multiple law enforcement blocking the Suburban from escaping again. He was already on probation in Citrus County for DUI and fleeing and eluding law enforcement, and his license has already been revoked.

The driver was apprehended, and is facing charges of fleeing and eluding, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, driving while license suspended/revoked and reckless driving. He’ll also be facing violation of probation charges in Citrus County.
