According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, traffic homicide detectives were on the scene of a collision in Cooper City when a Tamarac man attempted to drive through the wreckage and almost struck police before leading them on a chase.
On September 18, Jamari Donte Hall, 19, was operating a red Honda. According to the arrest report, the vehicle swerved around a police cruiser in the 9400 block of Sheridan Street before continuing east through the yellow crime scene tape in the westbound lanes.
The Honda quickly went into reverse and nearly hit four more cops as deputies approached on foot to prevent it from accessing the collision site, according to the report.
In order to do a U-turn and run many red lights, the Honda was pursued by a Broward Sheriff’s police car as it traveled swiftly east on Sheridan, south on University Drive, then west on Pines Boulevard, according to the investigation.
According to authorities, the Honda recklessly traveled north on University Drive at speeds of more than 100 mph before coming to a stop in Tamarac’s 8200 block of Northwest 79 Avenue, close to Hall’s house.
He was detained and interrogated. Detectives stated Hall acknowledged his actions were improper and claimed he was simply angry following a dispute with his girlfriend.
He was accused of serious assault on police officers, evading arrest, reckless driving, and various other traffic offenses.
According to documents, he was freed from the Broward County Jail the next day after posting $5,000 in bonds.
