Between the hours of 6 a.m. on April 7, 2023, and 6 a.m. on April 10, 2023, Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) deputies made ten arrests this past weekend. Deputies dealt with 1,001 service calls and made 224 traffic stops over the weekend.
“This was a relatively calm Easter weekend in Flagler County, potentially due to the inclement weather on Sunday,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “Remember, there is no need to fake a hit and run if you are involved in an accident. That will only get you arrested!”
Deputies responded to a residence in the B-section of Palm Coast on Saturday in reference to a reported hit-and-run accident. Man Stages Hit-and-Run After Crashing Into Fence The detailing party, later distinguished as Timothy Bristol, at first educated dispatch that his vehicle was left in his carport and got hit, then he changed his explanation and exhorted that his vehicle was left out and about and another vehicle side-swiped his vehicle.
Flagler County Communications received a call about a reckless driver from the Belle Terre Parkway and Pine Lakes Parkway intersection prior to being dispatched to this call. The revealing party expressed that a dark Chevrolet Silverado steered off the street and collided with a wall then, at that point, brought off speeding not too far off.
There was no evidence of a collision when we arrived at the house. Bristol later showed up at the home and expressed he had been driving the area attempting to track down the vehicle that hit his vehicle. Bristol later admitted that after hitting the fence, he did not know what to do, so he called 911 to say that someone else had hit his car.
After that, Bristol was taken into custody on charges of Misusing 911 and Failure to Provide Information at the Crash Scene. After posting a $1,000 bond, Bristol was released from the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility.
Units were dispatched to the F-section in response to a reported structure fire on Saturday evening, Timothy Bristol (Flagler County Jail Mugshot). The homeowner said they saw flames coming from a guest bathroom in their house, so they quickly left before emergency responders arrived.
Appointees helped with traffic light nearby while the Palm Coast Local group of fire-fighters smothered the blazes. Luckily, no wounds were accounted for.
