FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. — Beach-goers ran out of the way as a Jeep drove down the Fort Myers Beach shore Saturday.

The Lee County Sheriff's Office was on the case and said "This is extremely dangerous & is taken very seriously. No motor vehicles are allowed on ANY beaches in Lee County."

LCSO says they were able to locate the female driver outside of Lee County. They note that the woman driving the Jeep is not a Lee County resident and is being cooperative during the ongoing investigation.

"Sheriff Carmine Marceno has zero tolerance for any kind of reckless behavior anywhere in Lee County," said LCSO.
