A traffic stop on southbound I-75 turned into far more than a window-tint violation on Wednesday afternoon.
According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Carlos Aguilar, 51, was stopped near Pine Island Road (mile marker 143) at approximately 3:00 p.m. The windows of his 2004 Toyota van appeared to be illegally tinted.
A Detective with the LCSO Highway Interdiction Unit attempted to perform the traffic stop, however, Aguilar accelerated. Approximately .25 miles later, Aguilar stopped the vehicle and fled into a thickly wooded area along the interstate.
