Florida man with suspended license drives 100 mph with 3 kids in the back to get girlfriend to Taco Bell job interview: police
By Patrick Reilly,
He did it for his belle.
A Florida man was arrested after speeding 100 mph while driving his girlfriend to a job interview at Taco Bell on Tuesday, according to arrest documents.
Jevon Pierre Jackson, 22, was driving along DeGroodt Road near Falls Church Road in Palm Springs — a 40-mph zone — when he began swerving in and out of traffic at high speeds in a black Mercedes, according to an affidavit obtained by WKMG-TV .
Jackson flew past an unmarked police vehicle and into a no-passing zone where he “split the lane,” causing a white pickup truck to swerve and narrowly miss a head-on collision with the Mercedes, police wrote.
When Palm Springs police pulled him over, they found three young children sitting in the back of the car.
Jackson, who was driving with a suspended license, told police he was speeding to get his girlfriend to a job interview at Taco Bell, according to the affidavit.
He has a history of traffic violations, police noted.
Jackson was booked at the Brevard County Jail and was charged with reckless driving, habitual traffic offender and three counts of child neglect.
He is scheduled to appear in court on April 18, according to jail records.
