Florida deputies arrested a driver who narrowly avoided colliding with a K-9 deputy’s vehicle and fled at a speed of over 100 mph across a busy highway.
The driver, 36-year-old Bryant Smith was detained by officers from the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office with the help of K-9 Toki after failing to escape arrest on the night of 2nd August.
Smith was spotted by patrolling officers from the City of Edgewater Police Department as he sped down the I-95 trying to flee after nearly crashing into a deputy’s car.
They deployed stop sticks and managed to disable his vehicle.
Smith then tried to escape into the nearby woods but was apprehended by the deputies and their canine.
During the arrest, he suffered a minor bite to his ankle from K-9 Toki.
After receiving medical treatment for the injury, he was transported to the Volusia County Branch Jail.
Smith now faces multiple charges, including two counts of fleeing law enforcement and one count of resisting an officer without violence, as a result of his reckless actions on the highway.
