BROWARD COUNTY, Florida – The Broward Sheriff’s Office stated that traffic homicide investigators were at the site of a crash in Cooper City when a Tamarac man attempted to drive through the debris and nearly struck deputies before leading them on a chase.
Jamari Donte Hall, 19, was driving a red Honda on September 18. According to the arrest report, the vehicle drove around a police cruiser in the 9400 block of Sheridan Street and continued east in the westbound lanes through the yellow crime scene tape.
According to the report, as deputies approached on foot to prevent the Honda from accessing the crash scene, it rapidly went into reverse and nearly struck four additional deputies.
Investigators state that a Broward Sheriff’s patrol cruiser followed the Honda as it went east on Sheridan, south on University Drive, and west on Pines Boulevard before making a U-turn and running multiple red lights.
The Honda traveled recklessly at over 100 mph northbound on University Drive until it stopped in the 8200 block of Northwest 79 Avenue in Tamarac, close to Hall’s residence, according to officials.
He was detained and interrogated. According to detectives, Hall recognized his actions were improper and claimed he was merely irritated following an argument with his girlfriend.
He was accused with aggravated assault on law enforcement personnel, fleeing and eluding police, reckless driving, and a number of traffic violations.
According to the documents, he was freed from the Broward County Jail the following day after posting a $5,000 bond.
