Martin County - Wednesday January 4, 2023: Martin County Sheriff Deputies arrested and jailed a Port St. Lucie man on Tuesday for fleeing and eluding police after refusing to pull over.

19-year old Dylan Brown was arrested fleeing and eluding which is a felony, and reckless driving.

Brown was arrested after a deputy patrolling an area of Route #1 observed two vehicles traveling at a high rate of speed. The vehicles were weaving in and out between lanes and appeared to be racing. According to a release from the MCSO, when the deputy turned on his blue lights and attempted to pull the two vehicles over, the vehicle driven by Brown "continued to flee from the deputy for about a half mile" until finally coming to a stop because of traffic and red light.

The incident took place along a stretch of U.S. #1 where five people have died in two separate fatal traffic accidents have occurred in the past three months.
