This is astoundingly stupid.
A man chased by Cape Coral police last week was found in his home Monday because he left his driver’s license with an officer.
30-year-old Vincent Parlato’s Ford Mustang was stopped on Santa Barbara Boulevard on Sunday, Feb. 10 after a Cape Coral police officer noticed him driving 60 mph in a 45 mph zone.
Officer Ross pulled Parlato over. When explaining why she had stopped him, the officer said Parlato was argumentative and would not follow directions. He handed the officer his driver’s license and then decided to take off.
To his credit, Parlato must have done a decent job of taking off. It took police a week to catch up with him. But when they did, he was promptly charged with fleeing and eluding law enforcement and resisting law enforcement without violence.
