Tarpon Springs man faces drug charges after chase


Man faces drug charges after police chase

A Tarpon Springs man was arrested Tuesday night after he tried to back his car into a sheriff's deputy before fleeing the scene, authorities say. According to an arrest report, here's what happened: A deputy tried to approach David Edward Resovsky, 20, in a Steak 'n Shake parking lot in Oldsmar about 7:30 p.m. Resovsky abruptly backed up his Nissan Altima, then headed north on Pine Avenue. As the deputy pursued Resovsky in his cruiser, Resovsky ran at least two red lights, drove through a ditch, jumped a curb at the Tampa Bay Skating Academy and eventually crashed into a pond near 3705 Tampa Road. Before impounding the Nissan, authorities found a plastic bag in the car that contained a green leafy substance and a glass pipe. Resovsky was charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, fleeing and eluding an officer, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. As of Wednesday afternoon, he was being held at the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $30,300 bail.
