Pasco deputies had a little fun with a Wesley Chapel man after they saw him dressed like Fred Flintstone while driving a souped-up Smart Car that looked like the Flintmobile… and it wasn’t even Halloween.
Pasco County Sheriff’s Office Deputy H. Echevarria pretended to pull over Mr. Fred Flintstone, AKA Don Swartz, for speeding in the Meadow Bedrock Pointe Subdivision.
Authorities say, with tongue firmly in cheek, that after he was cited for speeding, he “became unruly and had to be detained.”
“After further investigation, Mr. Flintstone was issued a Notice To Appear and released. Deputy Echevarria then seized the vehicle which is now part of the PCSO fleet. This is what Intelligence-Led Policing looked like in the stone age.
A very special thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Don and Trina Swartz for being such great sports… Yabba Dabba Doo!” wrote the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office on its Facebook page.
