I understand the headline is quite lengthy, but it was needed to really tell the story. 22-year-old Stephen Peterson of Port Orange and 20-year-old Victoria Averill had quite an adventure before it all ended at the Flagler County Landfill.

It all started on June 21st in Flagler Beach, Florida when our Florida Man and his accomplice drove through the intersection of State Road 100 East and Old Kings Road South and strike multiple vehicles. That’s just off I95 near the Popeye’s. The SUV then continued south on Old Kings Road at a high rate of speed. The incident was spotted by a  MyFWC Florida Fish and Wildlife officer who then attempted to stop the vehicle. The FWC officer activated his emergency lights and siren but the vehicle did not stop. Does the FWC even have authority to pull over vehicles? I’m not sure. Anyway…

Then, according to Flagler County Sheriff “The vehicle entered the property of Old Kings Elementary School and drove around the running track before exiting the school and continuing to flee down Old Kings Road. The vehicle then entered the Flagler County Landfill and into the wooded area between the landfill and I-95.” And that’s where things went wrong.

Flagler County Fire Rescue Fireflight, which is the fire department’s helicopter, monitored the vehicle’s location and directed deputies to the vehicles location. The vehicle had run into and become stuck on a concrete barrier. This next line, sums it up nicely. “The male was naked except for a small covering wrapped around his waist and socks. It is unknown why the male was not wearing more clothing.”
