A man wanted by police walked into the Orange County, Fla., Jail on Thursday, not to turn himself in, but to bail someone else out. That resulted in some serious commotion on John Young Parkway, MyFoxOrlando.com reported.
"Everybody was pretty much going crazy! You see a lot of cops around this location. I'm like something is going on," Juan Amayo, who manages the gas station and convenience store across the street. That was around 10:30 a.m. ET.
The front parking lot of his store was surrounded by several police cars with flashing lights. Then an officer ran in Amayo's store. "They asked me if someone ran inside the store," said Amayo.
Orange County Sheriff's deputies and Orlando Police officers were looking for 24-year-old Demorris Hogg. Investigators say Hogg had gone to the Orange County Jail to bail his girlfriend out, 19-year-old Cheyanne Sadler.
After Hogg posted the bond, deputies said he was sitting in the lobby and he was recognized as a wanted man. Hogg is wanted in Volusia county on outstanding warrants, and he is the Daytona Beach Police Department's "most wanted man" of the week.
When deputies confronted Hogg, they said he ran right out the front door of the jail lobby and across six lanes of traffic on John Young Parkway just south of Interstate 4, right towards Amayo's store.
"They even shut a corner of the road down," said Amayo.
According to the arrest report, when officers got a hold of Hogg, they said he tried to charge one of them, then kicked-out the windows in a patrol car. The officer noted in the report that he had to pepper spray Hogg.
Within an hour of Hogg's arrest, his girlfriend bonded out of jail. We caught up with the girlfriend, Cheyenne Saddler, as she was leaving the jail. When asked how she felt about her boyfriend's arrest, she replied, "I ain't got time to tell you the real story and what those [expletives] did in Volusia county."
Hogg is charged with resisting arrest. He's facing drug and aggravated assault charges in Volusia County.
