Drunk Florida man yells 'come and get me' to deputies, is arrested

DEFUNIAK SPRINGS — A Florida man was arrested this weekend after fleeing a traffic stop, then later coming back to taunt officers and do doughnuts on his four-wheeler, according to the Walton County Sheriff's Office.

Aaron Clark, 24, was charged with fleeing, attempting to elude and reckless driving after he ran away from a traffic stop Saturday night, deputies said.

Clark was stopped, along with two other four-wheelers, on a Walton County road. While the two other vehicles stopped, Clark rode away from the deputies.

Later that night, Clark returned to the traffic stop with a beer in his hand and yelling "come and get me" to the deputies before riding off again, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Deputies tried to catch up to Clark, but when they turned the corner onto Margaret Boulevard, Clark sped at the deputies, holding a beer can in his hand and yelling.

Deputies went to Clark's home to arrest him. Clark said he had no memory of the incident because he was intoxicated, according to deputies.
