A 19-year-old Florida woman is accused of fleeing and eluding deputies. The kicker? Getting arrested was on her “bucket list” of things to do, according to deputies.
Janiya Shaimiracle Douglas, 19, of Homestead, was charged with fleeing and eluding authorities and failure to obey an order from a law enforcement officer to stop Thursday morning in the Florida Keys, according to Monroe County Sheriff’s Office online booking records.
Monroe County Sheriff’s Sgt. Robert Dosh said that Douglas, who was driving a Toyota sedan, was speeding and driving recklessly near North Key Largo at about 7:47 a.m. EDT, WPLG-TV reported, citing an arrest report.
Dosh turned on his lights and siren, but Douglas did not stop and continued southbound until finally stopping at a three-way intersection, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.
Douglas told the deputy that getting arrested had been on her bucket list since high school, according to the arrest report.
Douglas was arrested and was booked into the Monroe County Detention Center.
