What is Fleeing to Elude a Law Enforcement Officer?
Fleeing to Elude a Law Enforcement Officer (or, “Fleeing & Eluding” or “F&E”) occurs where you:
1) Drive a vehicle in Florida; 2) And after a Law Enforcement Officer orders you to stop or remain stopped you… 3) Knowing that an order to stop had been given by a Law Enforcement Officer, either A) Willfully (i.e. intentionally, knowingly, and purposely) refuse or fail to stop the vehicle; or B) After stopping the vehicle you willfully flee in an attempt to elude the officer.
Fleeing to Elude is a 3 Degree Felony which is punishable by up to 5 rd years in state prison and a $5,000 fine. F&E carries a mandatory 1 year driver license suspension (which the Judge can bump up to as many as 5 years) & it also carries a mandatory adjudication of guilt, meaning that if you are found guilty then you will have a permanent felony conviction on your record.
The bottom line is that if a cop wants to pull you over then you should pull over, and stay pulled over. If you have any questions about the law enforcement officer or her authority to stop you then feel free to dial 911.
