NAPLES, Fla. — Collier County Sheriff’s Office deputies caught and arrested three-time convicted felon Mikael Lamar Lindsey on May 24.
Deputies noticed through an open driver’s window that 27-year-old Lindsey was not wearing his seat belt while driving on Seagrape Ave.
When the deputies tried to conduct a traffic stop, instead of pulling to the side of the road, Lindsey got out of his vehicle and ran through an open fence into a backyard and out of sight.
Collier County patrol units, K9 units, aviation and drone units conducted an extensive search. Deputies in the air saw Lindsey swimming through a lake near the DMV on Airport-Pulling Road South.
Deputies took Lindsey into custody and charged him with resisting arrest, driving on a revoked license, posession of narcotic paraphernalia, violation of county probation, and a citation for not wearing a seat belt.
