Bodycam footage posted by the Volusia Sheriff’s Office shows Barr being arrested in the room. After being cuffed and taken outside, Barr looked up at the Sheriff’s helicopter and said, “We lit as Hell, ya’ll got the helicopter after me.”

“Barr told [police] his friends left him in Miami, so he hitchhiked to Kissimmee, stole a vehicle, and got off at the Dunlawton exit in Volusia County because he was looking for a Wi-Fi connection,” the Volusia Sheriff’s Office wrote on Twitter.

“He’s now in jail with no connection,” they added.

Barr was Transported to the Volusia County branch jail and charged with loitering, grand theft of a motor vehicle, fleeing or attempting to elude law enforcement, and unlawful carrying of a concealed firearm.

He was also charged with resisting an officer without violence, driving with a suspended/revoked license, and leaving the scene of a crash with property damage.

Barr remains in jail without bond.
