Florida man Zachary Adam Sibert, 29, of Vero Beach is in the Brevard County Jail after he was clocked at 110 mph on Interstate 95 in Brevard County. After being pulled over, he stopped long enough to bail out of the vehicle while yelling “I’m Sorry” to deputies as he ran across the highway attempting to escape.

Sibert was allegedly doing 110 mph in a 70 mph zone when a Brevard County Deputy initiated a traffic stop. In the dashcam video, Sibert is seen bailing out of the vehicle and running across Interstate 95, almost getting waffled by a dump truck at the start. 

Sibert crossed to the other side of the highway while dodging traffic and ran into the St. Sebastian River State Buffer Nature Preserve near Fellsmere. While there, he convinced a man to drive him out of the area and give him a ride home. The ploy didn’t work, as Brevard deputies found him hunkered down, hiding in the back seat.

The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office released a statement about the incident which went something like this:

“The good news is that Sibert yelled ‘I’m Sorry’ to our Deputy as he took off running and while he was a courteous criminal, he was not very smart as after a short time of hiding out in Buffer Preserve, he located a vehicle and said he would pay the driver to take him back up to the area of the interstate”

The Sheriff also had some words of advice for other criminals thinking about running from them:

“If you run from the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office you are only going to jail tired!!”

Sibert was Transported to the Brevard County Jail where he was charged with resisting an officer without violence, driving while license suspended or revoked (with knowledge) and a bench warrant for failure to appear in court. Sibert is in custody awaiting trial on December 7th.
