A South Venice man was arrested after he fled from law enforcement on a bicycle.

According to a Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office report:

On April 12, deputies were called to a 711 store on Tamiami Trail around 2 a.m. to issue a trespass citation.

As the responding deputy arrived, the defendant was leaving the scene. The deputy pulled in front of him with lights activated, but the bicyclist rode around the marked vehicle.

The deputy then activated the siren, but the bicyclist continued to flee. The deputy eventually was able to stop the bicyclist on Shamrock Boulevard, but he wouldn’t get into the patrol vehicle. A second deputy helped him in.

On the way to jail, the defendant began kicking the patrol car petition with both of his feet. The patrol vehicle stopped but the defendant wouldn’t get out when ordered to do so. The deputies placed the defendant in a hobble restraint and continued on to the jail, as the defendant continued to curse.

Joseph Loori, 36, 4500 block of Alligator Drive, was charged with probation violation, resisting an officer without violence, and battery on a police officer. Bond was not immediately available.

On April 10, the woman was teaching a baby to roll over when the baby rolled right off the mattress (without a frame) onto the floor.

As she hugged the baby, the defendant came into the room. After he learned what happened, he allegedly became angry and punched the woman.
