[SILVER SPRINGS] – A Florida Man on the run from deputies stopped mid-chase to shoot up some heroin.
According to Marion County Sherrif’s Office, a detective arrived at John Stephens home on Monday to arrest him on an outstanding warrant. Stephens spotted the officer and took off, stealing a family member’s car in the process.
A second deputy saw the stolen vehicle and gave chase. After some time, Stephens drove back home, got out the car, jumped a fence and proceeded to get taken down by a police K-9 named Tipster who bit his arm.
While being apprehended, Stephens told deputies he was “taking a shot” of heroin during the chase, he then apologized to the officers, blaming his actions on the drugs.
Stephens faces multiple charges, in addition to the ones of grand theft auto he had prior to the chase. He’s currently being held without bond. [Original Article]
