LAKE MARY, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - The Florida Highway Patrol has released video of a pursuit of a suspect which happened last week. The man troopers were chasing was accused of stealing an FHP cruisier.
Just after 4 p.m. on May 2, a trooper spotted a pedestrian who appeared to be “medically distressed,” as he was walking along the Florida Turnpike in Okeechobee County. That pedestrian was identified as Shane Jensen, who was wanted in a carjacking incident in Clearwater.
As the trooper walked away from his cruiser to retrieve water for Jensen, the suspect got up and entered the patrol car and took off down the highway.
