Jeffrey Travis White, of Tampa, was arrested on Wednesday for leaving the scene of an accident on U.S. 41 near Gibsonton. He was tailgating Tracy Lynn Sloan, of Lakeland, who said the buzz cut goon followed her for several minutes on Monday morning, so she took her phone out and recorded him. Isn't that just as dangerous? Taking your cell phone out to record while your driving? I hope the police gave her a ticket too for reckless endangerment. Anyway, as he zoomed past her, he flashed a wicked grin and gave her the finger. Within seconds, White spun off the rain-slicked freeway onto a median and smashed into a light pole.
Sloan crackled as she drove away, "That's what you get, all on video buddy!" White's battered 2008 Ford pickup was lurched backwards across the grass. According to police, White fled the scene, but was arrested on Wednesday after Sloan turned the video over to police. He was facing charges of leaving the scene of a traffic crash, careless driving and failing to wear a seat belt. Records also showed that White had quite a rap sheet, which included busts for battery and pot possession.
Sloan wrote on YouTube that she would have moved out of his way to let him pass, but there were trucks in the lane next to her. She said, "I've recorded circumstances like this before, catching idiots doing stupid things, but never ever had this happen. Needless, to say though, I've never seen Karma come back so fast." Not for nothing, she should pay a fine too for driving while filming. She could have easily caused an accident as well. Regardless, it was funny to see this guy get his in the end.
