Troopers say the suspect pretty much drove up to JSO and stopped on the East Forsyth Street side. He was arrested in the Duval County Jail parking lot and FHP walked him right into jail.

Action News Jax also got video of a man in FHP custody and asked him a few questions.

The man said he was not running from troopers. Action News Jax’s Bridgette Matter is still waiting on FHP to give information on where the pursuit started. We are also talking to Action News Jax law and safety expert Dale Carson about potential charges the man could face.
