Gordon Ormond Pasco County, Florida man arrested for his 5th DUI and 12th arrest for driving with a suspended or revoked license. Surreal happy mugshot.
‘I’m happy and I know it!’ A shirtless Florida man smiles widely for his mugshot (see below) — seemingly ecstatic, moments after being busted for his fifth DUI after a low-speed police chase. And how!
Gordon Ormond, 56, of Pasco County, flashed his pearly whites in a
bizarre booking photo after the habitual offender was eventually hauled in by cops for allegedly running a red light in New Port Richey while driving a white van. A deputy with the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office tried to pul Ormond over, only for the man to ignore demands to stop.
And that’s when all the fun began.
Ignoring police sirens and emergency lights, Ormond continued to drive between 15 and 35 mph and at one point hit a basketball hoop, WTVT reported.
Ormond was eventually sidelined after authorities used stop sticks.
‘OJ Simpson, I’m not. But I’ll try it anyway.’
‘Thankfully he’s in jail again. Maybe tougher sanctions this time because let’s face it, he’s had more than one chance,’
During questioning, investigators said Ormond claimed his license had been suspended — it was only when checking the system, cops noticed the man’s license had been revoked since July 1991 – with our collective hero having previously booked four DUI convictions.
Bodycam footage had captured the inebriated driver confessing, ‘I have no license. I’m driving on a suspended license.’
While adding, ‘I’m a good guy, I’m a very good guy. I just wanted to park in front of my friend’s house.’
Ormond was arrested for DUI, failing to submit a breath test and fleeing scene of a crash. Officials said the ordeal was Ormond’s 12th arrest for driving with a suspended or revoked license.
The MiamiHerald reported Ormond also being booked with leaving the scene of an accident, fleeing to elude and failure to submit to a breath test. Bond was set at $10,000.
‘Thankfully he’s in jail again. Maybe tougher sanctions this time because let’s face it, he’s had more than one chance,’ Sgt. Dennis Fenstemacher told WFTS about the man’s repeated arrests.
Unclear was the lengthiest time behind bars for the ongoing driving infractions – given the Florida resident’s repeat tenacity to be a rock star.
