SANFORD, Fla. – The Seminole County Sheriff's Office released video on Wednesday of reckless driver who they say led officers on a chase, leaped over a fence and crawled on his hands and knees to escape.

The suspect, identified as Raymond Gaines, 26, was driving in the area of West 18th Street in Sanford when a Sanford police officer in the area attempted to stop the vehicle. 

Gaines then sped into Garrison Drive, where he fled from his vehicle, according to SCSO. 

The video shows Gaines leaping over fences and trying to crawl on his hands and knees trying to escape authorities. 

SCSO stated on their Facebook page Gaines was taken into custody by Sanford Police Department and was charged with possession of cocaine with intent to sell and resisting without violence.

He was booked into Seminole County jail.
