Suspect arrested after hiding in swamp

Paul Daniel Smith was arrested after hiding in a Florida swamp

K9 Knox, Deputy Rob Wilkins and Corporal Andrew Denbo followed him into the swamp and located him nearly entirely hidden in the mud.

A speeding Florida motorist got more than he bargained for when he tried to flee police by running into a muddy swamp on Tuesday.

"Taze me, taze me", Paul Daniel Smith yelled, along with a string of obscenities.

According to the sheriff's office, deputies saw a vehicle moving at a high rate of speed on southbound US 41 that was involved in a chase in Hernando County on Tuesday. With the help of a police dog, they found Smith hiding in the swampy water.

Deputies said Smith eventually slowed down after almost striking deputies and ran into a densely wooded, swampy area.


Smith can be heard asking officers to tase him so he can go to the hospital.

Smith kept driving after police spotted him on the highway, before pulling over and fleeing on foot. Deputies took him into custody without incident, although he still had a complaint about the cuffs. They say Smith had other ideas.

It took a few minutes to extract Smith from the mud, but he was eventually freed and charged with flee to elude, aggravated assault and violation of probation. He was transported to a nearby hospital for medical clearance.

He also faces multiple felony charges in Hernando County. At one point, he even slowed down and Tara Berger, 31, jumped out of the passenger side of the truck - police arrested her for lying to LEO during a felony investigation.

He had previously been busted for drug possession, petty theft and scheming to commit fraud, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
