People use the weirdest excuses to get out of a ticket. But, one Florida guy, who was going 75mph in a 55 zone, wasn't BS-ing the cops. He really was in a hurry to get to the toilet.
24-year-old Carlos Adonis Ramos-Erazo had no intention to get out of his car. The police had to chase him, and they finally caught up with him in front of his home. The officers had to use a Taser to stop this man from... doing number 2!
Instead of relieving himself in his own bathroom, Carlos ended up in the police car where he did the nasty. Apparently, not all excuses are fake.
Since the young man wasn't lying, yet he was speeding, what the appropriate punishment?
Ramos-Erazo was charged with fleeing, battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault with a car on a law enforcement officer, and resisting arrest.
He was released from Lake County Jail after posting $18,000 bail. It seems that this man had to go through a lot, though he did leave something behind. He urinated and defecated the police car, so at least he has a story he'll one day tell his grandkids.
Or not, depending on how much humiliation Ramos-Erazo felt while doing business in the back of the police car.
We still think that his punishment was over the top, despite the speeding. We all have to go, and it's not always near the toilet.
