Umatilla (WTFF) – A Florida man driving an unregistered car was arrested for several offenses.
28-year-old Joshua Lee Cranmer was born in New Jersey and now works as a roofer living in Umatilla.
Instead of actually registering his 1999 green Saturn, he just slapped “an extremely old version” of a license plate on it. There were no decals on the tag either, according to the arrest affidavit.
On Tuesday morning a sheriff spotted the vehicle cruising northbound on Grays Airport Rd. with three other occupants. Joshua, who was driving, ignored the blue lights and siren and continued driving. The sheriff continued following the vehicle.
He finally parked in front of a trailer on SE 197th (also known as Big Steep Rd.) in Ocklawaha.
The sheriff knocked on the door and out walks Josh “soaking wet” and “wrapped in a towel.”
Joshua denied driving the car, and quickly thought of an alibi.
He told the sheriff that “he was f*cking his girlfriend” and asked him to “smell his fingers” to prove it.
Joshua Cranmer was arrested and charged with Fleeing with Disregard of Safety to Persons or Property, Driving with a Suspended License, and Failing to to Register a Motor Vehicle. His bond remains at $7,000.
Update: a year later, this Florida man was arrested on two separate occasions for charges including burglary of an occupied dwelling, grand theft, driving with a suspended license and failing to pay child support.
