A Florida man, riding a bicycle, is behind bars after attempting to flee an on-foot deputy for probation violations.
According to court records, Tomarius James Wagner, 24, is awaiting trial for various drug possession, concealed weapons charges, and drug distribution charges when the deputy chased the man down and caught up with him.
“To be honest, I don’t know which is worse, the fact that Wagner was trying to flee on a bicycle or the fact that Wagner got run down on foot by Tyler (the deputy) while trying to flee on a bicycle,” said Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey.
“Wagner took a real ride to the Brevard County Jail, where he was held on a no-bond status for resisting without violence and an on-site probation violation. Oh, and one more thing just to show, we are good sports. We didn’t seize Wagner’s getaway vehicle,” said Ivey. “Now, that’s how we do it here in Brevard,”
Wagner is being held in the Brevard County Jail on a no-bond status.
