Going nowhere

7:21 p.m. — 500 block of Deen Road, Palm Coast

Reckless driving. A Palm Coast man drove backwards on Deen Road after an argument with his mother. 

A Sheriff's Office deputy was monitoring the Deen Road and Hardy Street intersection when a man driving a white hatchback drove, speeding, through the stop sign, according to the suspect's arrest report. As the deputy put his patrol car in drive to follow the hatchback, the car came back through the intersection in reverse, once again speeding through the stop sign.

The deputy followed the man back to a home on Deen Road where it parked and the suspect exited the car. 

As the deputy arrested the suspect for reckless driving, the man said had gotten into an argument with his mother and left the home, the report said. He came back because he forgot his phone.

Tough guy

Battery of a person over 65, resisting arrest. A 67-year-old man who was arrested for shoving his roommate three times told a Sheriff's Office deputy that he would need "a couple more guys" to arrest him. 

The suspect is a resident at an assisted living facility and walked into his shared room where his roommate was laying down, according to an arrest report. The two began to argue and then the suspect then shoved his roommate off the bed and shoved the man twice more as the roommate tried to stand up. 

When the deputy told the suspect he was under arrest, the 6-foot suspect, 160-pound man said the deputy would need help to do it. He was charged with resisting arrest and battery, the arrest report said.
