A man was arrested in Immokalee for fleeing deputies on a golf cart.

Alex Acevedo, 24, was arrested on charges of driving under the influence and resisting arrest without violence, according to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office.

According to a Collier County report, around 11:30 p.m. a deputy saw a blacked-out vehicle on Lake Trafford Road. The vehicle was identified as a gold cart.

The golf cart was on the main road without lights on so the deputy pulled behind the golf cart and turned on the emergency lights.

Acevedo was identified as the driver of the golf cart and appeared to be pulling over after the deputy activated his emergency lights.

According to a Collier County report, Acevedo threw a can at a fence, that exploded on impact and sped up.

The deputy activated his sirens and followed Acevedo down Titus Lane.

Acevedo pulled into his driveway and began yelling at family members to come to get the items from him. He then threw his phone at a younger male.

According to a Collier County report, while being handcuffed the deputy noticed Acevedo was swaying, and his facial hair smelled like beer.

The deputy also saw a Corona beer in the cup holder of the golf cart.

Acevedo was offered to take a sobriety test, which he denied, according to a Collier County report.

Acevedo was taken to Immokalee Jail Center.
