According to the arrest report, a deputy saw a blue Nissan Altima with a Florida tag, which was reported stolen. The deputy said they were waiting for "additional units" when two men got into the car and drove away on the south side of the OYO Hotel on Pensacola Blvd.

Deputies tried to use a K9 to locate the suspect, but were unsuccessful.
