A veteran horse jockey is accused of giving a Marion County, Florida deputy a surprise ride in his pickup truck during a traffic stop Sunday night.
A deputy stopped the truck for an expired tag.
When the deputy spoke with the driver, 42-year-old Abdiel Toribio, he discovered Toribio also had an expired license.
The deputy entered the vehicle partially and tried to arrest Toribio, who resisted, deputies said. Deputies said Toribio then floored the gas pedal to speed away.
The deputy was able to hang on to the vehicle and enter the vehicle, where he got Toribio to stop driving.
