Tyler Anne Price, a 20-year-old resident of 597 John Anderson Highway in Flagler Beach, was driving her blue pick-up truck on State Road 100 early the morning of May 29 when a Florida Highway Patrol trooper noticed her “unable to maintain a proper lane as the vehicle was traveling from side to side” and braking erratically. The trooper pulled Price over. Price stopped in the median just east of Old Kings Road, on 100, and told the trooper she’d just been in an argument with her father. The trooper noticed she had slurred speech and glassy eyes. He asked her to step out of the vehicle. Instead, she fled.
The incident would result in eight charges, three of them felonies, including fleeing and eluding a cop, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and attempted escape, plus drunk driving, resisting, criminal mischief and driving without a license. She was booked at the Flagler County jail on Saturday. She remains there on no bond, because she had violated a previous pre-trial release. She had been arrested in May on a grand theft charge.
The incident with the trooper began just before 2 a.m. The trooper pursued her but as she negotiated a turn to go north on Old Kings Road she traveled into the oncoming lanes of travel, the trooper reported, and crashed into a concrete power pole. (Florida Power and Light responded to the scene and determined that the pole would have to be replaced, according to FHP.) “Immediately after the collision occurred, live electrical power lines were sparking around and on the vehicle,” the trooper reported. “I then positioned my patrol vehicle in a way to render aid as quickly and safely as possible with the sparking power cables/lines as a result of the crash.”
Price then stepped out of the truck and was apprehended. A trooper took her to nearby AdventHealth Palm Coast. As she was with medical personnel, in the presence of a trooper, she said she was under the influence of heroin and should not have been driving. She was not in a position to conduct field sobriety exercises, her arrest report states, but FHP intends to subpoena her bloodwork, which would presumably reveal whether she was driving under the influence.
When she was cleared by medical personnel, Price, in troopers’ custody, requested to use a rest room at the hospital. A trooper removed her handcuffs and let her in the rest room on her own. Once she was in there, however, the trooper began to hear loud noises. The trooper went in. According to his report, he saw Price “attempting to escape by crawling through the ceiling. The trooper grabbed her leg and stopped her, but said Price had damaged parts of the restroom in the alleged attempt. She was subsequently transported to the Flagler County jail.
This woman has clearly been watching way TOO many movies where the criminal actually escapes being captured. Maybe should change channels and watch some reality shows which show how really STUPID people attempt to run but always get caught at the end. Bad Girl Bad Girl Whacha Gonna Do, Whatcha gonna Do When They Come For YOU! SMH
Pretty ironic how they play a Rastafarian song for the cops
She needs mental help not an arrest
Unfortunately they cancelled two of my favorite shows: Live PD and COPS, which did in fact show the stupidity of many criminals. Unfortunately, that didn’t jive with what BLM crowd wanted us to believe, even though diversity was apparent across the stupidity spectrum. Alas, the PC patrol decided we couldn’t handle the truth.
LivePD was cancelled because Williamson County sheriff broke the law by having the video of them tasing a man to death destroyed. Sheriff Chody went behind the backs of the county and signed another agreement for LivePD to feature them when he was told the county terminated the contract. Now the county, Chody and LivePD are named in a lawsuit, Chody has been charged with a felony and is no longer sheriff. Please get your facts right before posting why your favorite racist show was cancelled.
“Bad Girls Bad Girls..Whatcha gonna Do? Whatcha Gonna Do When They Come For You”?
In her case – I guess it’s..Try to climb out of a bathroom ceiling” :)
How did this girl manage to lose her soul already at the tender age of 20? We’re seeing more and more stories like this and it’s scary. Really scary. Like the 14 year old who recently killed his female classmate in St. Augustine by stabbing her 114 times; and just yesterday, 2 runaways from a juvenile home in Volusia County broke into a home, stole weapons and got into a shootout with deputies. Both were barely old enough to have ‘body hair’, if you get my drift. We as a society are losing kids faster and younger. Regarding the latter incident, I saw the press conference with Sheriff Chitwood. He was so angry and frustrated he literally cursed out the Department of Juvenile Justice. It was interesting to say the least.

May she receive the counseling and support needed to help her onto the right track. This up and coming generation faces a difficult environment that a divisive society can only offer.
Looks like alcohol isn’t her only problem–It may not even be her primary substance of choice.
Stupid knows no gender.
John Dillenger says
Boy, now days the police make up a lot of charges for 1 drunk girl who crashes her car. Back in the old days she would have been charged with driving drunk and have to pay for the telephone pole. I guess the judicial system likes making money anyway they can.
What a “RIGGED” system !
So DUI and under influence of Heroin but it’s the FCSO fault for the CHARGES lol Well guess times have changed. Might want to climb on board the train SMH
Tyler, this is the Tyler family from Flagler Beach. We are so sorry to hear what has been happening in your life. We remember when you were a little girl, sweet and beautiful and you are still that little girl to us. Terrible things happen that we cannot always explain or understand, but there is always hope for better changes. Ignore these “know it all”sayers, because they don’t know you and shame on them for passing judgement quickly. We know your bringing up was not easy and the loved ones you’ve lost on the way. Don’t lose yourself down that path, beautiful Tyler. Your life is worth living. God saved you that night from losing your life, he is trying to open your eyes for a second chance. You’re so beautiful, too beautiful for any drug on this planet. You may not feel loved but please believe me that you are loved and loved by God, truly. I hope many of your friends and family will reach out to you and help you sweetheart. Sending you love and light and strong prayers. Stay strong, Tyler. You can do it ❤️
Jess, keep praying for her. She is addicted to heroin and is a complete mess right now… not making the right choices. The charges are valid unfortunately. The truck was not hers, she stole it from the driveway and recklessly endangered herself and possibly anyone else who could have been in her path. She has always had other options to have a good life and has unfortunately made wrong choices over and over. She needs a drug program and mental health help as she seems completely unable to comprehend right from wrong. This is the first real consequences of her actions that she has faced as she has had many people attempt to intervene on her behalf in the past. She says she wants to do better. She cries buckets of tears about it but then does the exact opposite. She was in a drug program before and was doing great but they let her out early which was a huge mistake… she did well for awhile but eventually she went back to the people she was hanging out with before and back to the drugs. Some people need structure and discipline and they flourish. She is one of those people. I pray she gets the help she needs and the strength to create a different life for herself.
Kudos to here!!!
