Mustangs might be fast, but you can’t outrun our radio system and our law enforcement partners,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “Her driver’s license needs to be permanently revoked and she needs to spend some time in the Green Roof Inn thinking about her poor decisions and behavior that put so many drivers at risk. Thank you to VSO and Bunnell Police Department for helping to stop this reckless driver before she could kill someone.”Mustangs might be fast, but you can’t outrun our radio system and our law enforcement partners,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “Her driver’s license needs to be permanently revoked and she needs to spend some time in the Green Roof Inn thinking about her poor decisions and behavior that put so many drivers at risk. Thank you to VSO and Bunnell Police Department for helping to stop this reckless driver before she could kill someone.”
