Tortoise Drives Florida Deputy to Jocular Griping


OCALA (970 WFLA) -- In Ocala, A Marion County Deputy is going viral for his apparent "frustration" after getting stuck behind a very slow "driver".

Deputy Bryan Bowman complained about a tortoise in the middle of the road the way one might complain about an elderly human driving a car. "He's literally going one mile per hour in a 30... zone. He's easily a hundred... he shouldn't be out on the roadways to begin with." Of course, tortoises often live to a century or more. 

 Bowman said when he tried to guide the tortoise off the road, it "snapped" at him.
