He was using FaceTime duing his high-speed chase, among other things. Florida Man Caught FaceTiming High-Speed Pursuit While Traveling 110 MPH.
A cop tried to pull him over for “reckless speeding.” That didn’t work.
Hughes reportedly managed to reach speeds between 90 mph and 110 mph. In the meantime, he was seen FaceTiming his experience while driving during various parts of the pursuit.
“It should be noted the defendant was FaceTiming on his phone while I was traveling behind with my lights and sirens activated,” read the officer’s quote in FHP’s statement.
They eventually stopped him with a PIT maneuver.
Police noted that Hughes is a habitual traffic offender with multiple license suspensions on his record. He now faces new charges including driving with a suspended license, fleeing and eluding police, and for the icing on the cake, drug possession.
I’m shocked to discover that criminals don’t follow the law. Or maybe I’m not too shocked.
