The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) made 16 arrests, handled 878 calls for service and made 245 traffic stops between July 14th and July 17th.

“You can run from Georgia, but you can’t hide from FCSO,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “Our Deputy Sheriffs were busy keeping our streets safe from drunk drivers and making sure no fugitive feels safe in Flagler County. This weekend drunk drivers saw some new bars at the Green Roof Inn, and one of them even had a child in the car unrestrained. She certainly will not win mother of the year! Another dangerously drunk driver was stopped before he could hurt or kill anyone. This habitual drunk driver had to wheeled to the hospital in a wheelchair before going to jail as he was so drunk, he couldn’t stand. Hopefully, their stay at the Green Roof Inn will make them think before getting drunk and driving ever again. Thank you to the witnesses that alerted us to these impaired drivers so we could get them off the street.”

Sunday around 12pm the FCSO was dispatched to 10 Kingswood Dr regarding a trespassers. When they arrived to the scene, they saw a man matching the suspect description walking across Kingswood Dr from the Red Roof Inn. Deputies informed the suspect that the Red Roof Inn had called regarding his behavior and wanted a trespass order against him. At first the subject was not willing to cooperate, but then told deputies his name was “Michael Fuller”. Upon further investigations deputies were told that the suspect had tried to get a room under the name “Phillip Fuller”. The subject said he goes by Michael, after deputies confronted him. He also claimed to have lost his identification. Deputies searched his wallet after the suspect admitted his full name was Phillip Michael Fuller, and they found a Georgia license to prove that. During a check through state and national databases, it was discovered that Fuller is a fugitive from Georgia for Failure to Appear for Larceny. Fuller was arrested and transported to the hospital for medical clearance and later taken to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility where he is being held on no bond as a Fugitive from Justice.

Sunday night, the FCSO was called out due to a report of a black Mercedes that had traveled on the wrong lane and almost caused a head-on collision. The FCSO found the vehicle at Old Kings Rd and SR-100 and attempted a traffic stop. The vehicle did not stop until it reached the AdventHealth-Palm Coast hospital and parked close to the Emergency Room. The driver, Michael Alfonso 48 years old, is a habitual drunk driver and appeared to be highly intoxicated. He was taken to the emergency room via wheelchair to be checked out for any medical conditions. Alfonso was then arrested for Felony D.U.I. (4th D.U.I. – 3 Prior Convictions) and 2 counts of Failure to Obey Law Enforcement. He is being held on a $26,000 bond.

Saturday, the FCSO received multiple calls about a reckless driver near US-1, entering the City of Bunnell. One of the witnesses noted that the woman appeared to be impaired and there was a child in the back seat. FCSO was able to intercept the vehicle in the area of SR-100 and County Road 205, when the vehicle slowed down for no reason. As the driver was pulling over, the front tire slid into the slope on a deep drainage ditch causing the rear tire to lift several feet off the ground. This caused the car to teeter from side to side as it balanced on the edge of this deep drainage ditch. The deputy immediately removed the child and the driver from the vehicle for their safety. The driver was identified as Ayesha Cameron 31 years old, and during a D.U.I. investigation, it was noted there were signs of impairment as well as a strong smell of alcohol. Cameron also failed multiple sobriety tests. Cameron was arrested for 2 counts of Child Neglect Without Great Bodily Harm, 1 count of D.U.I. (B.A.C. 0.15) and has been released on a $3,000 bond. The juvenile was taken to Hidden Trails Community Center by deputies until a family member was able to come and take custody. The Department of Children and Families has been notified.
