A driver who fled from St. John’s County and Flagler Sheriff’s Office deputies was arrested in Flagler County after being stopped by Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) deputies in Palm Coast.

19-year-old Nathan Burrill, of Saint Augustine, originally fled from SJSO Deputies. SJSO sent a BOLO (Be On the Look Out) for a black Nissan sedan bearing FL #91APQL to FCSO as Burrill was fleeing towards FCSO jurisdiction.

Shortly after receiving the BOLO, Flagler Deputies observed the vehicle traveling south on I-95 and exiting onto Matanzas Woods Parkway and then immediately re-entering I-95. Once back on I-95, FCSO Deputies attempted a traffic stop but the vehicle once again fled. Deputies observed Burrill exiting onto Palm Coast Parkway. The driver committed several traffic violations once on Palm Coast Parkway including failing to stop at several red traffic lights, turning off all the vehicle’s exterior lights, and recklessly traveling in opposite lanes of travel in an effort to elude law enforcement.

FCSO was able to have a positive stop stick hit on the vehicle in the area of Colbert Lane. The vehicle continued toward Palm Coast Parkway NE and Harbor Center Way where Deputies again successfully deployed stop sticks on the vehicle. The driver then crashed into a metal pole but continued to flee without both right-side tires.

Burrill eventually came to a stop on Cypress Edge Drive where he was taken into custody by FCSO Deputies. Upon a search of Burrill’s person, deputies located a plastic bag in his pocket containing 9.1 grams of MDMA and 51.8 grams of marijuana.

“Another dirtbag thought it was a good idea to enter Flagler County and run from our deputies,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “In this case, you can’t run, and you can’t hide because we will find you and take you to the Green Roof Inn!”

Burrill was transported to the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility and charged with fleeing law enforcement with disregard for the safety of persons or property, possession of MDMA, felony possession of marijuana while in a motor vehicle, leaving the scene of a crash with damage, and driving with license suspended with knowledge. Additional charges from SJSO are pending. He is currently being held on $11,000 bond. He does not have a prior criminal history in Flagler County.
