CLERMONT, Fla. (AP) – 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.
