FORT MYERS, FLa. -- As part of a continuing investigation into the Aggravated Fleeing arrest of 20-year-old Sergey Baygulov on April 7, deputies in Sarasota today released additional video from a GoPro camera mounted to Baygulov’s helmet.  

 

On the day of his arrest, Baygulov’s motorcycle and GoPro camera were seized by deputies. Video obtained from his helmet cam showed Baygulov traveling at speeds more than 110 mph on River Road and I-75 in south Sarasota County. The video shows Baygulov weaving in and out of traffic and coming within a few inches of other vehicles including a school bus. The video also captures Baygulov speed past a marked law enforcement vehicle before fleeing to his place of employment where he was later arrested. Deputies are confident that at the speed he was traveling, Baygulov is lucky to be alive.
