Port St. Lucie man arrested after fleeing deputies in Stuart

STUART — A Port St. Lucie man accused of fleeing Martin County Sheriff's deputies late Tuesday at speeds in excess of 110 mph was arrested, according to records released Wednesday.

Branden M. Corriveau, 26, of the 2000 block of Southeast Stonecrop Street in Port St. Lucie, was arrested on a felony fleeing to elude law enforcement officer charge and a misdemeanor DUI charge in connection with the 11:16 p.m. incidents.

A deputy spotted a vehicle traveling north on Southeast Federal Highway at about 90 mph. A radar device measured the speed at 92 mph.

The deputy tried to catch up to the vehicle, a 2012 four-door Kia, but the Kia fled at speeds greater than 110 mph.

Deputies put out special tire deflation devices to get the vehicle to stop. The vehicle stopped just south of Southeast Heritage Boulevard following a pursuit of more than 7 miles.

Corriveau smelled of alcohol, and his eyes were watery and bloodshot, according to reports. He declined to take a breath test.
