Collier County deputies are looking to arrest a 21-year-old Golden Gate man who led them on a car chase down Collier Boulevard.

Deputies said it began at 3 a.m. Saturday when they got a call regarding a fight at the Waffle House on Tollhouse Drive.

Authorities saw a red vehicle with its lights off leaving the parking lot of the Waffle House. Deputies followed that car and it failed to pull over when they flashed their lights and turned the sirens on.

The driver, who has since been identified as Richard Museau, made a sudden U-turn at Marino Boulevard.

During the chase, his top speeds reached over 100 mph. At one point, Museau even hit a concrete median and started driving in the wrong direction.

Deputies also witnessed glass flying from the driver’s side window and heard two gunshots. One deputy even saw a gun being flashed out of the window.

Collier County EMS took Museau to the hospital where he’s currently being treated. Deputies are awaiting his discharge from the hospital to arrest him.

Museau is a convicted felon with two active arrest warrants and no current driver’s license. His crimes dating back to 2016 include armed robbery, theft, and cocaine possession.

Deputies say they found cocaine in Museau’s pocket after the chase.

Museau faces multiple charges for Saturday’s incident, including aggravated assault and fleeing from a law enforcement officer.
