Paralyzed man eludes police twice in one week
Pasco County, Florida -- A man who is paralyzed from the waist down was arrested in Sumter County on multiple warrants -- including attempted murder on two deputies -- after eluding capture twice in one week.
The Pasco County Sheriff's Office says 27-year-old Terry Yates could drive by using a stick or crutch-like object to operate the gas and brake pedals.
On April 3, Yates was spotted by police driving a stolen vehicle. Deputies set up a perimeter in the area of Clay Sink Road and Devils Creek Road and began tracking Yates with a helicopter. Yates was able to escape when the chopper had to refuel.
