FCSO Weekend Roundup January 12–15


Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) deputies made 24 arrests during the long holiday weekend between 6 p.m. on Friday, January 12, 2024, and 6 a.m. on Tuesday, January 16, 2024. They handled 890 calls for service and made 200 traffic stops.

“While everyone enjoyed the long weekend, it was another busy one for our deputies,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “Deputies did a great job capturing a repeat offender who tried to flee halfway through the county to get away from justice and another fugitive with an active warrant. If you have an outstanding warrant, or recently released and looking to cause trouble, you’d better stay out of Flagler County.”

Palm Coast Man Faces Multiple Charges after Trying to Flee from Deputies 

On Monday, January 15, 2024, deputies responded to a domestic disturbance at a residence off Ballenger Lane in Palm Coast.

A little after 2 p.m., a caller contacted Flagler County Communications stating that Chance King, 20, was causing a disturbance at their home and was refusing to leave. King was currently on probation following a narcotics charge from April of last year. While deputies were enroute to the address, King left in a black Ford Fusion.

Deputy Schmidt encountered the vehicle at the intersection of Pine Lakes Parkway S and Belle Terre Parkway, and recognized the driver as King. Deputy Schmidt continued to follow a short distance behind with no emergency lights until King accelerated quickly onto Bayside Dr. travelling in speeds up to 80 miles per hour in the residential neighborhood.

King continued to speed through the area erratically, showing no regard for public safety and weaving in and out of lanes, and even running off the roadway, causing damage to his right passenger side bumper. Once he reached Belle Terre Parkway heading northbound, King swerved in and out of traffic pushing numerous vehicles off the roadway.

In an attempt to stop the vehicle, Deputy Dorsey deployed stop sticks near Belle Terre Parkway and Buffalo Bill Dr. The stop sticks successfully deflated the rear passenger tire of King’s vehicle, but King continued to flee.

King proceeded north across Matanzas Woods Parkway onto Lakeview Blvd. until it reached a dead end. He then turned northbound onto a dirt trail leading into a heavily wooded area, until he struck a large sand berm. King then immediately jumped out of the vehicle and fled on foot further into the woods.

Deputies pursued him another 75 feet into the woods where they were finally able to take him into custody.

“This guy is no stranger to the Green Roof in and found himself right back there,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Unfortunately, he could’ve harmed someone else in his feeble attempt to avoid justice and is lucky that he did not. I commend our deputies for the quick thinking and determination that led to this reckless fugitive being captured safely.”

King was arrested on three counts of Fleeing and Eluding, Reckless Driving, and Resisting an Officer without Violence. He was transported to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility, where he is currently being held without bond. His previous charges include Carrying a Concealed Weapon, Possessions of Hallucinogens and Marijuana, and Resisting an Officer without Violence.
