MARION COUNTY, Fla. – Those slow drivers will get you every time! 

Well, in this case, it's a slow walker that hampered traffic in Marion County on Sunday. 

Deputy Bryan Bowman was slowed down to almost a complete stop because of a pesky turtle that decided to take the road instead of the woods. You can watch the funny video below. 

THE NERVE OF THIS GUY!! Folks, it’s time for another episode of “Deputies Walking with Wildlife”... MCSO Deputy Bryan Bowman was working at the KP Hole today and as he was driving, he saw THIS dude just walkin’ down the road. Seeing multiple traffic infractions occurring, Deputy Bowman flipped around behind him and threw on his lights to slow down traffic. He tried to get him off the road but he snapped at Deputy Bowman....the nerve!! Deputy Bowman then just followed the old man for about 20 minutes until he finally went into the woods... anyone know what kind of tortoise this is? #slowwwwwwsunday Thanks to Deputy Bowman for catching this wild encounter on tape and for sharing it with us!!

Bowman said that he tried to guide the turtle off the road, but the turtle "snapped" at him. How rude! 

Bowman followed the turtle for about 20 minutes until the turtle finally decided to give the drivers a rest and walked back into the woods.
