A man faces multiple charges after what proved to be an epic Florida police chase. Crossing two counties, in and out of cars, a man allegedly stole two different police cars as he desperately sought to outrun law enforcement.

Man Leads Wild Florida Police Chase in Stolen Squad Cars

The suspect, identified as 33-year-old Xavier Cummings, faces two counts of grand theft auto, two counts of grand theft of a firearm, escape and more, reported WFTV 9. A judge denied Cummings bond last Friday, prompting the alleged shout outbursts leading to removal of court.

“Illuminati, help!” Cummings shouted, reported WFTV 9. Ok then.

Police say Cummings told them he gained permission to take the Cocoa patrol car through mental telepathy, reported WFTV 9. The police report alleges the suspect showed signs of mental health issues. It further stated the man used crystal methamphetamines that day, with no sleep in approximately 24 hours.

Volusia County Sheriff’s helicopter footage captured the chase. The incident began when police responded to a disturbance report near a hotel in Cocoa, reported WFTV 9. But when police confronted the suspect, they say Cummings jumped into a squad car and took off.

Footage shows Cummings elude officers on I-95, finally forced off the road. He disembarks into the woods with officers pursuing. But then he remarkably popped back out of the woods and stole yet another police car. Police finally used stop sticks to disable the cruiser. Then footage shows officers finally take the suspect without further incident.
