Florida-man “Tried to Show Off” on a First Date with a High-Speed Chase

If you’re on a first date, it’s safe to say they probably don’t want to go on a high-speed chase from the police.

A 22-year-old man in Florida named Taylor Beverly somehow didn’t get that.  He had his date hop on a motorcycle with him Saturday night . . . and at some point he ran a red light.

Taylor saw a cop at the intersection, and the cop turned on his lights.  But Taylor did not stop.  He sped up until he was going “well over 100 miles per hour” . . . weaved in and out of traffic . . . and ran several red lights.

Taylor was eventually caught, and he told police he was “trying to show off” for his date.  The woman told cops she was “screaming at him to stop, but he refused.”

Taylor was charged with a felony for fleeing the cops.  He was released after posting $10,000 bond.  His previous rap sheet includes convictions for cocaine possession, grand theft, and passing a counterfeit check.
