Hide and seek

7 p.m. — first block of Old Kings Road, Palm Coast

Resisting arrest, burglary. A woman wanted for attempted burglary was found attempting to hide in a children’s playground slide.

Sheriff’s office deputies received a call about a woman attempting to break in to cars. When deputies arrived at the scene, they found the woman walking around the outside of a playground, throwing her items over the fence into the playground, according to her arrest board.

The woman went into one of the playground slides to hide from the deputies, but deputies found her hiding inside a corkscrew tube slide, refusing to come out. The woman fought deputies as they pulled her out of the slide, hitting one deputy multiple times.

The woman was detained and deputies found, upon canvassing the neighbor, the woman had committed over $1,500 worth of property damage. She was arrested and charged with resisting arrest, criminal mischief, several burglary charges and battery on law enforcement, the report said.

Going in circles

2:43 a.m. — first block of Old Kings Road, Palm Coast

DUI. A Palm Coast man was arrested after he repeatedly circled through a fast food restaurant’s drive through while speeding and hitting signs and the curb.

Restaurant employees called the Sheriff’s Office as the man circled the building’s drive through lanes, not even stopping to place an order, according to the suspect’s arrest report. Employees said the suspect even hit the restaurant’s sign in the parking lot.

The man then drove to the nearby bowling alley’s parking lot, where deputies found and held the suspect until a witness confirmed him as the suspect. One deputy wrote in the report that the man “appeared unconscious while in active physical control” of his SUV.

It took multiple attempts to get the man’s attention. The suspect told deputies he went to the drive through because he wanted food, the report said.

The suspect refused to take a field sobriety test. He was placed under arrest and taken to the county jail.
