Florida man caught on video making ‘dirt angels’ while running from deputies on Christmas Eve – PPT News


A Florida man was caught on video making “dirt angels” on a construction site while deputies searched for him after leaving the scene of a crash on Christmas Eve. 

Just after 7 p.m., deputies said the driver, who was involved in a one-vehicle car crash in Tampa, fled the scene of the crash before law enforcement arrived, according to a post made on social media by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies identified the driver as Eliezer Armando Reyes Rios, 34, who they said took off and ended up climbing a fence into a large construction site. 

While running from deputies, Reyes Rios was seen on video by the sheriff’s Aviation Unit, laying down in a pile of soil, and started making what officials described as “dirt angels.” He was also seen making calls on his phone.
