Man Tells Police He’s Racing Home After “Cheating on Wife”
Florida Man strikes again, this time speeding and driving recklessly down a highway.
Tarpon Springs Police pulled over a Jon Earl Pickard who was driving 90mph in an area where the speed limit was 55mph. According to the affidavit, the officer asked the reason for his speeding, and Jon “indicated his driving was reckless and endangering because he needed to get home in a hurry because he was cheating on his wife.” But it didn't stop there.
Because of the speed, he had to be arrested, and when police searched him, they found a baggie of crack in his shirt pocket, leading to a felony charge. Police said when they found the baggie, he didn't deny it being his, he blurted "I just bought that for $50." Was he bragging about the deal he just got?
He posted bail and will return to court on December 5th for charges of Reckless Driving and Felony Drug Possession.
