    Details:

    On 02/21/2018 at approximately 4:30 pm, HCSO deputies responded to a wrong way, reckless driver reported in the area of Bell Shoals Road and Bloomingdale Boulevard. They searched the area for a silver Nissan Altima that struck a guard rail and was running vehicles off the road. HCSO picked up the vehicle as it proceeded west on Highway 60 but did not give chase. Aviation observed the driver, later identified as Fady Suleiman of Temple Terrace, commit numerous traffic violations including repeatedly driving on the wrong side of the road, cutting off other drivers driving along sidewalks and through neighborhood yards. The vehicle continued to drive with a reckless disregard for vehicles and the life of pedestrians. At one point, he narrowly missed causing a head on collision with another vehicle. A patrol unit was able to safely deploy stop sticks and the vehicle finally came to a stop at Kingsway Road at Edgedale Circle. The driver exited the vehicle and surrendered to ground units who took him into custody. It is unknown what caused him to drive so erratically and begin the chain of events on the road which ended in his arrest.

    Suleiman was released from Florida State Prison on October 31, 2017. He has served 3 prison terms. Previous charges include Assault, Robbery Home Invasion, Felon in Possession Firearm, Battery on a LEO, Burglary, Driving w/License Canc, Susp or Revoked, Possession of Marijuana, Fleeing and Attempting to Elude LEO, Uttering a Forged Bill, Obstructing or Opposing An Officer w/o Violence, and Grand Theft.
