Key Largo, FL – Man Arrested For DUI Then Assaults Deputies and Emergency Medical Technician

January 17, 2019

Key Largo, FL (January 16, 2019) – A man from St. Louis allegedly attacked a paramedic and police officers after he was caught for driving a golf cart while intoxicated in Key Largo.

Police say that 32-year-old Parks Thornton Terry was driving a golf cart and swerving all over the road. When officers attempted to pull him over he responded by giving the officers the middle finger and continuing to run through stop signs.

As police officers tried to catch up with him, Terry continued to drive off in the golf cart. When he did stop, he exited the golf cart and ran into his home.  Officers knocked on the door, which is when a woman answered the door and refused to let the officers in the residence. When a paramedic tried to help police to get inside the home, Terry tackled the emergency responder to the ground.  He violently resisted arrest and assaulted the officers in the process.

He is being charged with DUI, fleeing and eluding arrest, battery, causing property damage, and other charges.
