On March 21, an officer driving in an unmarked patrol vehicle saw 22-year-old Jevon Jackson driving recklessly in a no-passing zone in Palm Bay, almost hitting a dump truck head-on, and was pulled over, WTVT reported.
After being pulled over, the officer told Jackson he was driving 100 mph, but he allegedly interrupted him saying he was only going 75 mph, court records state.
Jackson told police he was speeding to get his girlfriend to a job interview at Taco Bell, authorities said.
Officials said three children were also in the vehicle when Jackson was driving recklessly, including one which wasn’t in a proper restraint system.
In the arrest report, officers said Jackson “placed his three juvenile passengers in danger,” WTVT reported.
