Florida man told police he was speeding because he had to use the bathroom

BERLIN, GERMANY - NOVEMBER 24:  Urinals hang on a wall in a newly-inaugurated gender-free toilet at the office building of the city's Senate Administration for Work, Integration and Women (Senatsverwaltung fuer Arbeit, Integration und Frauen) on November 24, 2015 in Berlin, Germany. The administration has converted four of its previously separate men's and women's toilets to gender-free toilets in a sign of respect towards Berlin's trans-gender community, who otherwise often face potentially uncomfortable decisions or confrontations in the use of public toilets.

A man in central Florida has been arrested after telling a deputy he was speeding because he had to go to the bathroom.

Lake County Sheriff's officials say 24-year-old Carlos Adonis Ramos-Erazo refused to get out of his vehicle after being nabbed for going 20 miles over the speed limit Thursday. He said he had to go to the bathroom and drove off, hitting the deputy's arm with the vehicle.

Authorities say the deputy followed the man to his home. When the Ramos-Erazo tried to run inside, he was shot with a Taser.

Authorities say he urinated and defecated in the back of the patrol car on the way to the jail.

The Daily Commercial reports he faces charges including fleeing and battery on a law enforcement officer.
