Derek Fuller: Man arrested after ramming BSO deputies' vehicles

Broward County Sheriff's Office deputies were responding to a call from an Oakland Park resident just after 3 a.m. about her car alarm going off.

A BSO sergeant headed to the home saw a Chevy Malibu with dark tinted windows driving away from the area at a high rate of speed.

The vehicle sped onto Interstate 95 and into Deerfield Beach, where the vehicle rammed a deputy's vehicle and continued to flee, according to Broward County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Dani Moschella.

He then struck two other BSO vehicles, incapacitating his Malibu.

The suspect, 26-year-old Derek Fuller, bailed out of the car and ran through a relative's apartment, over a barbed-wire fence and into a field.

 

 

Deputies located Fuller with the help of a police helicopter and K-9s.

The two deputies he rammed were transported to Broward Health North Medical Center.

Their injuries do not appear to be serious.

Fuller was transported to the hospital for treatment of a dog bite before going to jail.

He was released from jail later in the morning on bond and faces multiple charges including three counts of aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer, aggravated assault, fleeing and eluding and possession of cocaine.
