WATCH: FHP arrest 70-year-old man for reckless driving

Reckless driving in Polk County

SARASOTA (WWSB) - Video released by the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) shows a man driving on U.S. 98 Wedgewood Estates Boulevard while sitting on top of his sunroof.

The man driving the car, 70-year-old Leonard Olsen was arrested for the stunt. An off-duty deputy following Olsen says the vehicle was going more than 100 miles an hour before he stood up through his sun roof.

After being pulled over Olsen told deputies he wanted to turn himself in saying he would rather “go to jail than go back home.”

He has been charged with reckless driving.
