Teen Arrested For Ramming Sheriff's Cruiser


Plant City, Fla-(Newsradio 970 WFLA)-Two Hillsborough deputies are okay after a teen in a stolen car rammed a marked patrol vehicle in the Walden Lake subdivision.

Two deputies were on patrol when they got word of a stolen car in the area of Turkey Creek Road and Connell Road. Deputies just happened to spot the stolen car turning onto Timberlane Road. 

They followed the vehicle as it turned down a dead end street.  When deputies turned on their emergency lights, the driver accelerated toward the patrol car, intentionally hitting it.  The deputies were not injured.

The driver of the stolen vehicle and his passenger took off on foot.  When the driver refused to stop and took an aggressive stance toward the deputies, one of the deputies used his electronic control device to stop him. The passenger is still on the run.

The suspect, identified as 16 year-old Steve Seago of Plant City, is charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and resisting an officer without violence.
