A Florida man tried to evade arrest by hiding from police underwater in a pond — but was captured when he came up for air. Daniel Christopher Booth, 36, was working at the solar plant on Hogan Road near Wellborn, Florida, on Wednesday, the Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release on Facebook.
Booth had warrants for his arrest from Baker County for selling methamphetamine, the sheriff’s office said, so a sheriff’s deputy was sent to the plant to arrest him. But when the deputy arrived, Booth ran away and tried to hide from K9 teams in a pond—but his action movie antics didn’t quite go to plan.
