LANTANA, FL – A man is in jail after attempting to flee and avoid a drug arrest yesterday, November 1, 2019. According to police, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 38-year-old Fakeria Shazay Phillips who is charged with fleeing law enforcement, resisting arrest with violence and two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.

According to the sheriff’s office, Phillips rammed his car into deputies’ unmarked police vehicles before fleeing on foot, where he was later arrested after a foot chase.

At approximately 1:20 pm, two deputies in unmarked vehicles attempted to take a suspect of a narcotics investigation into custody in the 100 block of S. Dixie Hwy in the City of Lantana. As deputies attempted to arrest the suspect, he entered his vehicle and began ramming the unmarked Sheriff’s vehicles. One deputy, fearing for his life and the life of his partner, discharged his firearm at the suspect, not striking him.

The suspect continued to ram the unmarked vehicle and fled the scene southbound on Dixie Hwy. The two deputies pursued the suspect approximately three-quarters of a mile. The pursuit ended when the suspect’s  vehicle collided with one of the unmarked vehicles. The suspect then fled the scene on foot and was apprehended by deputies after a brief foot chase. No injuries were reported to the suspect, deputies or bystanders.
