MARTIN COUNTY, FL – A suspect wanted by police for a string of burglaries eluded police but was caught in dramatic fashion by the Martin County Sheriff’s Office.
21-year old Christian Ottinot can be seen from the air using his vehicle to ram multiple Martin County Sheriff’s vehicles in hopes of busting through one more county.
“He failed. Realizing the gig was up, he bailed out of his Dodge Charger, which closely resembled a bad art experiment, and surrendered,” the department said in a statement. “Within minutes of entering Martin County, Ottinot was in cuffs being schooled by Martin County Detectives, the SWAT Team, Road Patrol Units and law enforcement from Broward and Palm Beach Counties.”
Ottinot, police say, began his reckless crime spree in Broward County as he fled from police this afternoon following a string of burglaries. Ottinot fled through two counties ramming multiple patrol cars before crossing the Martin County line, where he was greeted by the one wall of law enforcement he wasn’t able to tear down or move through.
“So he got out of the car, ran on foot, and dropped face down in the heart of the #WrongExit. Christian Ottinot was taken into custody and is facing multiple charges including burglary, fleeing and eluding, and battery on a law enforcement officer,” the department said.
