    Details:

    Javier Ginart, 125 Picardy Villa Circle, Brandon, was video chatting on his tablet outside of the McDonalds at 502 Brandon Boulevard at approximately 9:30 p.m. on 12/17/17 when he heard someone get into his car and try to drive it away. Roman Provezano was attempting to steal the 2009  Honda Accord, which had been left running, when Ginart (8/16/1978) tried to stop him from getting away. A struggle ensued and Ginart was dragged by the vehicle a short distance before he let go. He received minor abrasions on his shoulder, elbow and knee.

    Two nearby FWC officers observed the Honda operating recklessly as it fled the scene and attempted a traffic stop. Provezano fled from the traffic stop while discarding the tablet onto the roadway. The vehicle was subsequently located abandoned the next morning in the area near the Hard Rock Casino.  The Honda is equipped with an ignition interlock device which the driver is required to provide a breath sample for the continued operation of the vehicle. Provezano provided the breath samples and was captured by the installed camera on the ignition interlock device multiple times throughout his use of the vehicle.
