  • DOH!!!

    I just saw the footage of this on the news and had to dig up the article. Some guys just have no luck.

    From www.starbanner.com . The article is longer than this...much longer than I thought was necessary to relay the irony in it all...

    OCALA -- A man wanted for fleeing from police early this year was arrested Tuesday after a brief high-speed chase that ended when the pickup he was driving flipped end-over-end into two oncoming cars.

    Seconds after the crash on the 2200 block of Northwest Fourth Street officers found the suspect near his truck, a gun several yards away and several bags of marijuana strewn along the street, west of Martin Luther King Boulevard.

    ''We still trying to determine which vehicle contained the gun and which one the marijuana,'' Ocala police spokeswoman Cpl. Angy Scroble said at the scene. ''Fingerprints will be taken from the gun to see if we can tie it to any of the people involved in the crash.''

    Police officials said the gun had been reported stolen from a home in Durham, N.C. in 1998.

    As officers began calling for Ocala Fire-Rescue paramedics and Munroe Regional Medical Center ambulances shortly before 1 p.m., they noticed an injured man inside one of the cars, along with a large quantity of crack cocaine packaged for distribution.

    Five people in all were injured in the crash, Ocala police officials said. Though the damage to the cars and pickup was extensive, all the patients were treated and released from Munroe Regional by late Tuesday. Two of them were taken to the Marion County Jail.

    The wanted driver, identified as Lamar Leone Scott, 21, was charged with aggravated fleeing and eluding police officers, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and culpable negligence, officials said. He was also charged with the prior felony charge of fleeing and eluding.

    The driver of a newer model white Pontiac Grand Am, identified as James A. Curbean, 21, was charged with possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute. Both Scott and Curbean are being held in the Marion County Jail, where they appear today before a circuit judge.
