On January 15, 2023, at approximately 3:00 a.m., Deputy Kevin Wilson arrested Stephen Perk (H/M, DOB: 10/05/1986) for Fleeing to Elude a Law Enforcement Officer and Driving with a Revoked License. Perk also had a violation of probation warrant for Driving Under the Influence.

While traveling near the 8300 block of SW Highway 484, Deputy Wilson observed a white Mercedes C240 swerving within the lane, speeding, and crossing over the center yellow line. As the driver, Stephen Perk, turned onto Marion Oaks Pass, Deputy Wilson attempted to conduct a traffic stop with his lights and siren activated.

Perk refused to stop and fled at a high rate of speed until he drove off of the roadway while turning onto Southwest 88th Court. Perk’s tires began to spin in the sand and Deputy Wilson utilized his patrol vehicle to force Perk’s tires further into the sand, which caused Perk to become stuck. He was ultimately removed from the vehicle. Perk advised he fled because he had an active warrant and does not have a valid driver’s license.

Perk was arrested and transported to the Marion County Jail, where he is held without bond.
