A Melbourne man in need of lifesaving assistance thanked his responders by attacking them Friday night.
According to WFTV, 46-year-old Scott Morris slipped into unconsciousness after an apparent overdose. Fire-rescue assistance had requested help for Morris. When first responders revived him, he immediately went on the attack, fled to his car, and left the scene smashing into a fire truck during the escape. He got as far as Johnson Middle School before police caught up to him and took him into custody. Still, he continued to resist, the news site noted, injuring an officer while he was being escorted to the way to the police cruiser. To top it all off he tried stashing two bags of cocaine inside the cruiser, but to what end we have no idea.
The lesson here, of course, is best said through the words of Rick James.
