Dusty Mobley, 40, of Holt, kicked a John Deere riding lawn mower into “high gear” while he attempted to lose pursuing deputies with the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office, according to a department statement on its Facebook page.The chase ended when deputies shot Mobley with stun guns, the sheriff’s office said.
“When taken into custody Mobley had a revolver and a handcuff key in his possession, along with a pipe with methamphetamine residue,” according to the sheriff’s office.
Mobley’s hometown, Holt, is about 40 miles northeast of Pensacola, in Florida’s panhandle.
Update: Turns out the John Deere lawnmower Mobley was trying to outrun deputies with had been reported stolen. The victim has been contacted.
