HCSO: Man refuses to pull over


Published:

SPRING HILL - Daniel Carney, 32, was arrested Tuesday morning after failing to pull over his car for a sheriff's deputy.

According to an arrest affidavit written by Deputy James Baker, Carney traveled about a mile and a half, then pulled into a Circle K parking lot.

When asked why he didn't pull over, Carney told the deputy he was having "diabetic issues." A paramedic later checked Carney's blood sugar level and reported it normal.

Carney later told law enforcement he did see the deputy's emergency lights and sirens but kept driving because he wanted to go home.

Carney was booked on a felony charge of fleeing to elude an officer, and was cited for faulty equipment and no proof of insurance.

Court records show Carney was found guilty of three misdemeanors in 2009 for providing a false name to law enforcement, resisting or obstructing an officer without violence and trespassing.
