After a chase along a canal, deputies say they opened Pierre Revol's wallet and found crystal meth instead of cash.
The discovery of drugs was a shock, Revol allegedly said, claiming he bought the wallet from some guy on the street for a buck and had no idea about the dope tucked inside.
The story didn't stick with deputies, who charged the 26-year-old Boynton Beach man with drug possession and resisting arrest, according to a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office report.
Deputies first noticed Revol driving a four-door Mercury down Elm Street in West Palm Beach without a seat belt. Pulling a U-turn, deputies tried to catch up with the Mercury, but Revol quickly turned down Tallahassee Drive.
Revol then pulled the car in front of a construction truck and onto the sidewalk – as if trying to hide his car from the cops.
Deputies then saw the driver's door open.
"It appeared the driver was preparing to bail," the report says.
Revol didn't bail. Instead, he pulled onto Tallahassee Drive again.
Then, moments after rolling into a driveway on Aspen Road, Revol did finally bail. He bolted to the back of a home and hopped a chain link fence. Deputies followed.
Revol ran east, along a canal bank, where cops say he tossed a "small white object" into the water.
Deputies ordered him to stop, but he wouldn't stop. That's when one of the deputies jolted him with a stun gun. The voltage had no effect, the report says, and Revol hopped over a wooden fence.
A deputy caught up with Revol at the front of the house. There, Revol squared up and threw a punch at the deputy, but he missed.
That's when the deputy leveled him with a punch of his own, the report said.
Deputies searched Revol and found what appeared to be crystal meth in his wallet.
Revol, who has been arrested 14 times since 2004, remained in the Palm Beach County Jail Thursday in lieu of $6,000 bond.
