Florida residents band together to stop suspected hit and run driver


It was at that point that people gathered around again, with some trying to pry open the vehicle doors, with one man screaming "Don't move", while others snapped pictures of the Infiniti's license plate. During his initial attempt to run, he was approached by two people trying to stop the driver from leaving by shouting and banging on the window.

An arrest report said he may have been high on narcotics.

Maxwell Lagutenko, 25, was later charged in the crash that happened near Northeast 34th Street. The cause of the wreck is unknown. "(Don't move!"). The man stood near the wheels of the vehicle and the driver then proceeded to accelerate. He attempts to flee the scene of the crash several times but each attempt is blocked by witnesses in the area. They say there were no injuries to any of the drivers involved.

The driver remains obstinate in his resolve to leave and refuses to budge from the auto.

At one point, a man exits his van with a mallet and starts smashing the windows of the fleeing vehicle. The driver, however, swerves out of the scene.

Police believe those suspected of selling laced, potentially deadly cocaine in custody
A 25-year-old Brampton man is charged with fail to comply with a recognizance, and was remanded into custody for a bail hearing. Police say they executed four search warrants at two adjacent apartment complexes and one other Barrie residence on Friday.

The aftermath of the crash saw the driver of a badly damaged silver Infiniti SUV reverse the auto out of the scene of the crash, as the driver tried to hit-and-run.

Officers told Local10 that they don't encourage drivers or other people to try to stop someone from leaving the scene of an accident. The picture shows an image of a damaged vehicle.

"That is insane. You have a crash, you stop", said witness Anthony Jimenez, who drove by after the incident took place.

However, Jimenez conceded that taking out a sledgehammer might have crossed the line.

But the driver would not pull over, so the cop backed off because of the Miami PD's no-chase policy for non-violent crimes.
