POLICE ARREST MAN FOR ILLEGALLY HUNTING IN PRESERVE

November 7, 2003

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. -- A man led deputies on a chase after hunting where he was not allowed.

Wildlife officers and Brevard County deputies spotted him in the Sebastian Inlet Buffer Preserve off I-95 late Thursday night.

The man was determined not to get busted but, in the end, that's exactly what happened. Deputies hand-cuffed him and charged him with hunting deer in a preserve located about 16 miles south of Palm Bay.

The man ran from Fish and Wildlife officers after they spotted him along a canal. They chased him on foot and tracked him down with a helicopter, catching up with him at mile marker 160 on I-95.

That's where deputies confiscated the rifle and flashlight they say the man tried to hunt deer with.

The sheriff's office is assisting in the investigation.
