Cops: Masturbating man rams squad car, takes police on chase


A Florida man wanted for masturbating in public took officers on a car chase and rammed two patrol cars along the way, reports.

After an officer approached 27-year-old Deverick Markelle Smith of Fort Walton Beach earlier this month, he put his car in reverse, rammed the police car and took off, according to the report. He sped through a school zone, wrecked his car and then hit another patrol car. He then took off running before officers caught him.
