Florida Man Loses His Bumper In A Yard Then Gets Arrested For Fentanyl

A Florida man has been arrested after driving through someone's yard, losing his bumper, then being caught with Fentanyl.

A Florida man has been arrested after driving through someone’s yard, losing his bumper, then being caught with Fentanyl.

According to investigators, shortly before 12:30 a.m. on Monday, deputies stopped a vehicle missing a rear bumper.

Prior to the traffic stop, dispatchers received a call in San Mateo that a vehicle drove through their yard and one occupant of the vehicle had jumped out. A rear bumper fell off when the car left the yard onto Kyte Road.

The driver of the vehicle, Michael Givens, 27, of Palatka had a suspended license. Deputies conducted a search of the vehicle and found 23 grams of marijuana as well as a clear bag that contained white, crystallized rocks.

The contents field-tested positive for fentanyl and oxycodone.

“What was more disconcerting is the bag weighed 256 grams. According to the United State Drug Enforcement Administration, 2mg of fentanyl is considered a potentially lethal dose, and mixing fentanyl with other drugs increases the likelihood of a fatal interaction,” said Putnam County Sheriff’s Office.

Givens was arrested for trafficking fentanyl of 4 grams or more and possession of marijuana over 20 grams. He was taken to the Putnam County Jail and held on $502,500 bond.
