A drunk driving suspect was nabbed after fleeing through a construction zone on U.S. Hwy. 27/441 in Lady Lake.
Bradley Michael Webb, 32, of Lady Lake, was driving at 1:44 a.m. Saturday when he was caught on radar traveling 65 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone, according to an arrest report from the Lady Lake Police Department. His vehicle was swerving and he nearly hit a concrete barrier in the construction zone. He also came close to striking several large construction barrels before finally pulling over at a Mobil gas station.
Webb became “argumentative” and refused to obey commands from the officers. He would not get out of the vehicle and held on tightly to the steering wheel as officers attempted to remove him, the report said. He refused to provide a breath sample or sign a citation.
Webb was arrested on numerous charges, including driving under the influence, refusal to submit to a breath test, fleeing and eluding law enforcement and resisting arrest. He was booked at the Lake County Jail and released after posting $11,000 bond.
