SPRING HILL - A man seen riding a red scooter without eye protection on Tuesday night is being held on nearly $30,000 bond after fleeing law enforcement and throwing a chair at a deputy.

According to Deputy Dane Jenkins' arrest affidavit, Paul Bodisch was seen riding on Landover Boulevard near Higate Drive without eye protection.

Jenkins attempted to pull Bodisch over, but the Spring Hill man looked back then accelerated down Highgate Drive at speeds of about 30 mph.

Bodisch ran stop signs, and lost control of the scooter in the sand on a Bromley Avenue property. Bodisch fled on foot, and threw a metal chair at Jenkins before being taken into custody.

The arrest affidavit shows Bodisch was found with one hydromorphone pill, and that his license was suspended and scooter unregistered.

Bodisch was arrested on charges of battery on a law enforcement officer, possession of a controlled substance, resisting an officer, driving with a suspended license, fleeing to elude law enforcement and failure to register a motor vehicle. He continues to be held on $28,500 bond.

Court records show Bodisch has been found guilty of numerous misdemeanors in the past.
