Man Sleeping At Intersection Leads Police Chase

GREENACRES, Fla. (AP) — A man found sleeping in his car at an intersection led police on a chase before being arrested in a Greenacres gated community.

Twenty-one-year-old Joslet Jean-Charles was asleep behind the wheel at a busy intersection around 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Police received several calls about the 2003 Ford Taurus.

Police pulled a patrol car in front of Jean-Charles, who awoke, put his car in reverse, drove around the police car and fled. He abandoned the vehicle at the gate of the Waterway Village development.

Police did not initially find Jean-Charles, but arrested him at an address found on a bill inside the car.

He was charged with fleeing and eluding, operating without a license, resisting arrest and a probation violation. He remains in Palm Beach County Jail with a $7,000 bail.
