A 38-year-old man who West Melbourne police said was acting ‘bizarre’ before leading them on a vehicle pursuit through several streets to get to his home in Melbourne, Florida remains jailed. Police tazed and pepper-sprayed the man before taking him into custody and sending him to the hospital to be evaluated, reports show. Jorge Louis Rosado, Melbourne, was charged with aggravated battery of a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer without violence and fleeing and eluding after officers attempted to question him during a stop just after midnight Wednesday in the 1000 block of Wickham Road, records show.
“He fled during a traffic stop,” said Sgt. Michelle Page of the West Melbourne Police Department. The officer who conducted the initial traffic stop reported that Rosado refused to retrieve his vehicle’s documents on request and would not roll his window down. The officer asked Rosado to step out but as the officer attempted to undo Rosado’s seatbelt, he drove off, reports show. Police said Rosado then sped along the roadway despite being followed by patrol cars.
Officers used spike sticks to rip through his tires as he drove through one area. Police said Rosado kept driving until he pulled into his front yard. He refused to get out of the vehicle until several officers physically pulled him out and used a stun gun and pepper spray to subdue him, reports show. He was booked into the Brevard County Jail Complex in Sharpes where he was being held on a $20,000 bond, records show.
